Henry Cejudo Wears Magician Costume To UFC 238 Staredown

UFC 238 Ranking the top three fights including Tony Ferguson vs. Cowboy Cerrone

Cejudo was already the flyweight champion coming into the fight, but had to overcome a hard first round to storm back and finish the fight late in the third frame. "I couldn't do anything but I still wanted to fight".

"I'm not champ-champ", Cejudo said in an impassioned postfight speech.

"I am the greatest combat athlete of all time, and I just stole the title of best pound-for-pound fighter too", Cejudo said. Moraes appeared to be headed for a blowout victory in the first round, where he sent 15 powerful kicks crashing into the inside and outside of his counterpart's legs. "I want to start making Henry-weight money". Cejudo is a genuine MMA champ-champ now that he's claimed the vacant bantamweight strap.

Cody Garbrandt made his response to Henry Cejudo on Twitter, assuring he'll be back at the top of division soon and welcoming a fight with the champ at that point.

That lack of familiarity may give the 26-player Canadian contingent a brief edge, at least for the first round. The stats on him are ugly, but he has the pieces to put up a good performance on this golf course.

Cejudo went on the attack to open the second round, clipping Moraes and sending him stumbling.

Above is video of the event's post-fight press conference (courtesy of the UFC) which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Cejudo and Moraes. But he landed big knees to Moraes' head in a Thai clinch.

Despite not finishing the submission, Cejudo kept the pressure on and pinned Moraes against the cage, on his back. Posturing up one last time, Cejudo unloaded with more elbows and punches to the head of the downed Moraes, prompting the referee to step in and stop the contest with nine seconds left in the round. Cejudo stopped Dillashaw in the first round to retain his title.

Moraes sports a 22-5-1 record in the UFC, while Cejudo is now at 14-2. With the rare loss, Moraes' mark drops to 22-6-1.
