Henry Cejudo has big things in mind for 2019. He wants to set a record; he wants to join an elite class of fighters by becoming double champion at the UFC. He is not alone. His fellow student under his long-time coach Erik Albarracin, Patricio “Pitbull” Freire is also looking to become double champion this very year at Bellator.
While Henry Cejudo holds the flyweight championship at the moment in UFC, he was able to successfully defend against the bantamweight champion, T. J. Dillashaw. Later Dillashaw’s blood results tested positive for drugs, so he had to relinquish his UFC title. That does not mean Cejudo is done though, as he plans to go for the Bantamweight Championship this very year and win it to become a double champion. The only other fighters in the UFC to have held two championships of two different weight classes at the same time are Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunez.
