Jorge Masvidal & Henry Cejudo Debate 2019’s Fighter Of The Year

Jorge Masvidal

The 2019 Fighter Of The Year debate rages on, with several worthy candidates leading the charge.

However, one of the top two names being thrown out are none other than Jorge Masvidal and Henry Cejudo. Masvidal had a tremendous year, finishing all of his opponents via knockout or TKO, recording the fastest knockout in UFC history at five seconds, winning the UFC’s BMF Title, and simply emerging as one of combat sports’ newest megastars.

Cejudo kicked off 2019 with a successful UFC flyweight title defense over TJ Dillashaw – who later tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) – by finishing him in just 32 seconds. He followed that up with a UFC bantamweight title win, becoming the first fighter in history to have won an Olympic gold medal, and two UFC titles in different weight classes, dubbing himself “Triple C.””
