Just like he did on the wrestling mat back in 2008, Henry Cejudo showed he is the best in the world with a decision victory over Demetrious Johnson this past Saturday night at UFC 227.
In dethroning “Mighty Mouse,” Cejudo avenged a loss and became the new UFC flyweight champion.
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
2 years ago my light was diminished by the consensus pound for pound greatest fighter on the planet, Demetrious Johnson in 2min 36 secs of the first round in UFC 197,” he posted on Instagram after the win. “However it was not just one person that kept that light flickering deep inside my soul & heart. I chose to move forward and feed off my coaches, my team , my mentors, my training Partners, my family and all the UFC and Wrestling fans and journalists that never gave up on me.
“Now, that light at the end of the end of the tunnel has disappeared and today I realize there was never a light at the end of the tunnel, it was just a reflection of me, I am the light, And today I shine bright because of each and everyone one of you, even Demetrious Johnson who pushed me to evolve to new heights.
“I am grateful & appreciate each and everyone of you. Stay tuned Everyone, this is just the beginning. God bless you all & truly thank you.”
