Henry Cejudo Signs With UFC, Set For UFC 177 Bout
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.25.2014
Henry Cejudo has officially signed with the UFC and will compete for the promotion next month at UFC 177. As previously reported, the Olympic gold medalist with a 6-0 MMA record pulled out of his main event fight at Legacy FC 34 which led to speculation that a UFC deal was imminent. The UFC announced his signing on Friday and revealed that he will face Scott Jorgensen at UFC 177.
The show takes on place August 30th in Sacramento, Calif. The main card will airs on PPV following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.
While he hasn't beaten anyone of note 6-0 he's only been training MMA for 18 months and a win over Jorgensen at flyweight could put him within a fight of a title match.
