After failing to make weight for his UFC debut, and an ultimatum from Dana White, Henry Cejudo is reportedly heading to the bantamweight division.

Cejudo was booked to fight flyweight Scott Jorgensen on Saturday, but the Olympic gold medalist wrestler incurred complications while cutting weight, and was pulled from the event. It didn’t mark the first time the 27 year-old has had difficulties make 125 pounds for a bout.

Following UFC 177, White said Cejudo would not be cut from the promotion; however, he would only be welcome back if he fought at 135.

In a follow up report from MMA Fighting.com, Cejudo’s manager has relayed that the fighter is willing to compete at bantamweight in the future.

Since turning pro in March, 2013, Cejudo has won all six of his fights to date.
