Henry CejudoA former UFC champion and Olympic champion in wrestling, the UFC is confident that he will not sign a deal with the UFC. Gablem Stevensonem, a player who recently won a gold medal in wrestling in Tokyo.
UFC president Dana White announced that she will be meeting with Gabl Stevenson this week to talk about her future in MMA. However, Henry Cejudo told TMZ Sports that he thinks the UFC will not sign Gabl.
The UFC can’t afford it. I’m sorry they can afford them, but unfortunately they won’t pay him. He believes he can beat players like Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou in the next few years.
However, Cejudo added that in his view Stevenson will now have problems with the top heavyweights.
He is the biggest threat because of his wrestling skills. He is naturally heavy. But if he had a fight with Ngannou or Jones today, they would have beaten him.
Henry recalled that when he entered MMA on his own from the world of wrestling, he had trouble standing and only gradually gained the necessary skills.
But for now, it is unknown whether Gable Steveson will try his luck in the world of MMA. The actor himself says that perhaps he will continue to engage in wrestling. However, in context, there is also the possibility of appearing in WWE and fighting former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.
