It’s been 3 years. Although his senses may have been rusted, Henry Cejudo is confident of victory. He thinks that he can never lose because he is fighting not a fighter but an actor who is good at ‘Hollywood action’.
Former two-weight division champion Cejudo will challenge Aljamain Sterling for the bantamweight title at UFC 288 on May 7. It is his third championship belt and, as he claimed, the fourth if he wins the gold medal in wrestling at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
Sterling defeated champion Petr Jan in March 21 to become champion. However, he did not win and become the champion, but lost with a beating, and then became the champion with a foul win, so there was a lot of talk.
The root cause was Petr Jan’s ground knee kick with Sterling’s knee on the floor.
Jan thought it was okay because of the instructions of the coaching staff, but it was an obvious foul and the game ended when Sterling whined and said he couldn’t play.
It was a reversal foul game that took place while Yan took the initiative, and many people saw it as ‘Sterling’s show’, and Cejudo also sharply criticized Sterling.
“Sterling is not a fighter. He is an acting actor. He pretended to be sick, so he became a champion. If he is a true fighter, he waits a bit and fights again, but he lies down and begs for the championship belt. Who can’t beat an actor like that?”
Cejudo stopped Dmitri Johnson in his 12th defense to claim the flyweight title, and in June 2019 he also won the bantamweight title against Marlon Moraes. 카지노
However, after defending his bantamweight title against Dominic Cruz in May 2020, he abruptly announced his retirement.
In three years, he was in the Octagon, so he was doubting his performance, but he said that there was no problem because he had never stayed away from martial arts, such as voluntarily coaching Jung Chan-sung. Rather, he revealed through media interviews and social media that he gained more game know-how while watching from the sidelines.
Sterling was ridiculously champion. If it wasn’t for the foul play, it would have been a losing game. I was pushed by Yan for a while, but after becoming the champion, I changed a lot.
In the rematch with Yan in April of last year and the second defense in October against TJ Dillashaw, he defended the title with superior skills. It wasn’t Sterling when winning foul play.
Thanks to that, it’s a small difference, but it’s in the position of Topp Dogg. Sterling is -105, tax rate is +115.
Although underdog, Cejudo doesn’t mind. He won all three belts, including the Olympic gold medal, starting from the underdog and finishing the game with an upset.
