Later he gave the credit of his victory to his coach Captain Eric. In fact, in an emotinal backstage moment Cejudo presented the belt to his coach Eric Albarracin and revealed how he motivated him not to give up and pursue the belt. Here’s what Cejudo said while presenting the belt to his coach:

I wanted to present this belt to the Captain Eric because he is the one that push me to not give up. Because that one time when I did not make weight, I told the UFC that I was done man..but Eric was like, “Dude, you are not. You are not done”. This is the guy I fought for, and for that reason Captain, you are also a world champion coach now. Congratulations!

Can you believe that? Can you believe that? I just received the belt from the greatest combat athlete of all time. This is one of the greatest moment of my life….We took the castle baby!
