Henry Cejudo is on a mission… A mission to beat the flyweight champion of the world, namely Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, Coming off a near flawless victory over contender Wilson Reis, via second-round KO.
In his post-fight press conference he talked about his plans from here, his thoughts on his quite impressive victory and a few other things, including his recent nasty hand injury.
What do you think? Does Cejudo deserve a title shot? Is he THE ONE? That one special guy who can end Demetrious Johnson’s long and glorious rule over the UFC flyweight division? Well, I guess we’ll see in the next few… Days? Weeks? Months? Maybe even years? Hopefully soon… :)
And now, here’s Henry Cejudo:
“I’m the one,” Cejudo said. “I know I’m the one. I have the style, I have the wrestling. I know I’m the one to beat Demetrious Johnson. No disrespect to these fighters, no disrespect to any of them. Anybody has that fighter’s chance, but I believe I have the style to eventually beat him, and I truly do believe that.”
“Emotionally, I do want to fight him right away,” Cejudo said. “Technically, am I going to be ready for this guy? I don’t want to just fight Demetrious; I want to beat him. He’s been on my mind since he beat me. I’m a competitor, man. To get stopped in front of 20,000 people, that (expletive) hurts. I think about it a lot. There’s a reason why he’s the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world. That’s who I have to beat – not just fight, beat.”
“I like that fight,” Cejudo said. “I know he’s one guy that wants me, and so do I. I’ve just got to sit down with my team. I don’t make decisions on my own, but absolutely, I want to fight the best guys out there.”
