Henry Cejudo has surprisingly reversed his decision to retire from professional MMA. The Olympic champion and former two-division UFC titleholder announced Friday on his YouTube channel that he will not retire from MMA. Cejudo went on to break his promise of retiring from MMA if he lost against   Merab Dvalishvili, Cejudo initially retired after losing to Dvalishvili but he later had a change of mind after talking to some legends of the sport. While talking to MMA Fighting Cejudo opened up on the circumstances leading to his comeback from retirement

“I just cannot let it roll like this. I just cannot,” Henry Cejudo said. “As much as it hurts. Again, guys, I take the L. But I cannot take the L knowing the way that I pretty much went out. I don’t mind the losing aspect of it. Maybe just the way that I did go — the being winded side, the not trying to knock this dude out because I was tired — I think that’s the stuff that really bothers me.”

Henry Cejudo added “So as of today, guys, I was getting ready to announce my [retirement] — a couple of days ago, I literally did a whole video on my retirement, thanking my family, thanking my friends, thanking everybody who has been there.”

Cejudo then went on to talk about how Daniel Cormier, Quinton Rampage, and other Combat legends helped him find his way back

“But as time sets in and gives me a chance to talk to a lot of the legends — I called Daniel Cormier, I talked to Quinton ‘Rampage,’ I talked to a lot of guys who I respect who have been there before.”

“And you know what, Henry? Look at your situation. You went out and you fought the No. 1 guy in the world [Aljamain Sterling], you lost a split decision. You went out and you pretty much fought the best guy in the world [Dvalishvili], because when this guy gets an opportunity to fight Sean O’Malley or ‘Chito’ Vera, it’s going to be easy work for him. ”

A fighting legend like Cejudo deserves an honorable retirement and fans are hoping this time he gets one.
