Report: Demetrious Johnson Believes Bout With Henry Cejudo is Next
By FCF Staff
Demetrious Johnson doesn’t have his next fight booked yet, but the UFC’s flyweight champ believes it will be with rising contender Henry Cejudo (10-0).
The latter is coming off a split decision win over Jussier Formiga to run his UFC record to 4-0, and the Olympic Gold Medal wrestler is currently ranked #3. In the latest episode of “UFC Tonight“, it was reported that Johnson expects to face Cejudo next, and that the bout will likely take place in April.
Johnson (23-2-1), meanwhile, earned a unanimous decision win over John Dodson in his last outing, which took place in September. It marked the second time Johnson has defeated the contender.
