Henry Cejudo: passing it forward
Additionally, the former two-division champion gave some insight as to his newly minted schedule in retirement.
“Since retiring I’ve been trying to show my niece and nephew the art of the cringe! It takes many takes before you become the King of Cringe.”
His work inside the Octagon, however, has left a mark on the sport that is difficult to dispute. Before his retirement, Cejudo was on a tear in the UFC, having defeated top names in the sport.
In light of his historic upset victory, Cejudo was propelled into the eyes of the MMA fandom. He would build up a marketable persona alongside massive names on his resume. Not to mention, he became only the 4th UFC champion to hold belts simultaneously.
His retirement came as a surprise to many, as he just defended his bantamweight title against veteran Dominick Cruz. He expressed a desire to walk away from the sport as he believed he had reached the pinnacle of success. Many fans and media members were quick to speculate that pay disputes could have played a role in his shock retirement.
The UFC Bantamweight division is bubbling with top contenders ready to scrap for vacant gold. Moreover, ‘Triple C‘ fanatics would be clamoring to see a return of the King of Cringe back in the midst of a stacked 135-pound division.
