Henry Cejudo Says A WWE Deal Was In The Works Before He Signed With UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.12.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) revealed that he was in talks with the WWE before he eventually signed with the UFC. He will make his debut at UFC 177 against Scott Jorgensen (15-9 MMA, 4-5 UFC) on the FOX Sports 1 preliminary card. The event happens on August 30 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California.

On almost signing with WWE: "It was something that was actually in the works. One of their talent scouts saw me, met me and wanted to bring me in for an audition or whatnot. They had reached out to me and wanted to get a feel of it."

On if he might wrestle in the future: "I've always watched WWE ever since I was a little kid. But mixed martial arts right now is my No. 1 priority. Maybe WWE in the future, but as of now I'm sticking straight to the UFC and my fighting career. It might be worth trying it out some day, but as of right now, I solely train and think about mixed martial arts."
