Henry Cejudo

Former two-division champion Henry Cejudo had an interesting incident with Kron Gracie during a UFC 288 poster signing session.

Fight week can be a very stressful time for fighters. In addition to grueling weight cuts for some, the obligation to participate in interviews, open workouts, and press conferences can cause some real agitation. That was apparently on display as Henry Cejudo arrived to sign posters alongside Kron Gracie. Both men are scheduled to take part in Saturday’s festivities with ‘Triple C’ stepping into the main event spotlight once again for a UFC bantamweight title tilt opposite reigning champion Aljamain Sterling.

Captured by UFC Embedded and shared on Twitter by Combat Sports Today, Kron Gracie was clearly in no mood to deal with Henry Cejudo’s classic cringe.

Cejudo: Me?

Henry Cejudo Ready to Resume His Reign Over the Bantamweight Division

Henry Cejudo was quick to dismiss the negative vibes coming from Gracie, suggesting that the featherweight standout was likely having a difficult time cutting weight for his main card contest with Charles Jourdain. Earning three-straight wins under the RIZIN banner, Gracie first appeared with the UFC in 2019 and scored a first-round submission victory over Alex Caceres. Eight months later, he would suffer a unanimous decision defeat against Cub Swanson in what would be his first and only career loss thus far.
