Olympic Wrestler Chooses UFC Over WWE
2008 freestyle wrestling gold medallist Henry Cejudo, recently told MMA Junkie that he recieved offers from both WWE and UFC, but chose UFC:
It was something that was actually in the works. One of their talent scouts (Gerald Brisco) saw me, met me, and wanted to bring me in for an audition or whatnot.
I’ve always watched WWE ever since I was a little kid. But MMA right now is my No. 1 priority. Maybe WWE in the future, but as of now, I’m sticking straight to the UFC and my fighting career. It might be worth trying it out some day, but as of right now, I solely train and think about MMA.
