Henry Cejudo praised his former training partner, Brandon Moreno, after winning the UFC flyweight title from Daveson Figueiredo at UFC 263.
Moreno finished the third round with a rear-naked choke and became the new UFC flyweight champion. After the event, Moreno came across Cejudo behind the scenes, and the former UFC flyweight champion celebrated Moreno’s victory. The two were former training partners, and Moreno even helped Cejudo prepare for the fight between Demetrious Johnson and Jussier Formiga. Cejudo I was happy for his longtime friend.
It’s strange to say that we were each other’s primary training partners at the time. I always knew this guy was special, and I’m not surprised he has a belt around his waist. @theassassinbaby becomes Mexico’s first UFC champion. Congratulations. My favorite color is Brenda. Please raise your hand.
Henry Cejudo is also from Mexico, but because he was born in Los Angeles, the UFC doesn’t count him as a promotion champion from Mexico, just as Cain Velasquez didn’t win the title. Anyway, it was amazing to see what Moreno did to Figueiredo in the rematch at UFC 263. Moreno undoubtedly proved to be the best flyweight on the planet so far by finishing Figueiredo in the third round.Especially when Cejudo has retired and is no longer actively fighting. It’s going to be a fun fight, but the match between Cejudo and Moreno doesn’t seem feasible given their history.
For Moreno’s next match, given how exciting the first two fights were, it could be a trilogy with Figueiredo, but perhaps like Ascar Asker or Alex Perez who drew with Moreno. It’s a person. Now that Moreno has become the champion, there are plenty of fresh matches and the UFC flyweight division looks very strong again.
