Henry Cejudo Analysis: Coming off a tough loss

Cejudo, who has held championship belts in both bantamweight and flyweight divisions over the course of a decade, has only ever lost once during that time – in a close UFC bantamweight title battle against fellow Olympic gold medalist Aljamain Sterling that left him just on the brink of returning to top of 135-pound division. Both men are gifted grapplers, but have distinct styles and approaches to grappling. Dvalishvili is more of a power-style striker while Cejudo boasts extensive submission and defense skills. One of the sharpest minds in mixed martial arts today is Henry Cejudo, who excels at strategizing a battle. He’s already aware of what to anticipate from Dvalishvili’s wrestling prowess, but he’ll be trying to take advantage of any holes in his defense that other competitors won’t be able to see.
