UFC 238: Cejudo vs

Valentina Shevchenko

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

American Cejudo, 32, battled back after a torrid opening round to dramatically turn the contest in his favour, as he closed the distance on his opponent and found success with his close-range boxing and Muay Thai knees.

"Because those are legends, man", Cejudo said. In the third, Cejudo took over. A series of short elbows and power shots led to an eventual stoppage when referee Marc Goddard jumped in at 4:51. Cejudo is a genuine MMA champ-champ now that he's claimed the vacant bantamweight strap. The result extends the "El Cucuy" win streak to 12 and he remarked, after the fight, that he was looking to make it an "Improper 13" on his next time out (a reference to Conor McGregor's whiskey).

Shortly after Henry Cejudo finished Marlon Moraes to become a two-division UFC champion, he laid out his "hit list", naming three fighters he hopes to battle in the near future. For more UFC action, sign up for ESPN+ http://plus.espn.com/ufc. "This is a game of poker, and when I saw his demeanor change and he started to drop his arms, it was time to eat".


McGregor tweeted his congratulations to Cejudo, who has won five straight bouts. But I want to start getting paid.

Cejudo (15-2) said he had a severely sprained ankle heading into the fight but overcame it despite the pain. Following impressive knockout wins over Aljamain Sterling and Jimmie Rivera, the 31-year-old Brazilian continued the strongest stretch of his career in his last outing.

Speaking at the UFC 238 post-fight press conference, Henry Cejudo explained why Garbrandt, Cruz and Faber's names were the first out of his mouth after winning the bantamweight belt.
