Henry Cejudo Record
What is Henry Cejudo's record?

Henry Cejudo is an American MMA fighter and an Olympic Gold medallist. He was born on February 9, 1987, in Los Angeles, California, and is of Mexican ancestry. Cejudo currently competes in the UFC and holds the distinction as a former two-division champion.

Henry Cejudo overcame a very tough upbringing. Born to Mexican immigrants in Los Angeles, he faced the turmoil of his father’s drug and alcohol addiction, leading to frequent relocations. At 4, his mother fled with him and his siblings to New Mexico, escaping his violent father. Deported when Cejudo was six, his father passed away when he was about 20 years old. Despite adversity, Cejudo’s grit shone through. He excelled in wrestling, winning the coveted Olympic gold in Beijing in 2008. His switch to MMA was equally astonishing, with Cejudo being one of the rare fighters who became champions in two divisions.
