PostSubject: Cejudo vs. Jorgensen Off of The UFC 177 Card   Fri Aug 29, 2014 5:33 pm

There's some breaking news about the long awaited UFC debut of Olympian Henry Cejudo.

Unfortunately due to an unmentioned medical reason, new UFC flyweight Henry Cejudo has been forced to withdraw from Saturday's UFC 177 bout against Scott Jorgensen.

I'm going to speculate a bit here and say that it just might be related to weight-cutting issues, as there has been some chatter that Cejudo has been struggling to make the cut to 125.

It's a shame for something like this to happen, especially for a fighter's UFC debut... but I'm going to speculate further and say that we're probably going to see Henry Cejudo in the 135 division when he makes his return.

I think Jorgensen should get his show up and win purses since this is so short notice that no one can fill in.

Yeah... it'll be interesting to see how DFW and the UFC deal with this.

Even though I'm speculating that the issue is weight related, if that is in fact the case, I'm fairly certain that the UFC brass will be somewhat forgiving since Cejudo is another Olympian that they can have on their roster... as for Jorgensen, I agree with you on the fact that he should at least get his show money.

It looks like my speculation on both counts is correct...

Cejudo had issues making 125... and DFW had this to say about Henry during an interview following weigh-ins at the Sleep Train Arena :

Barao will also have to move up in weight... to 145, and DFW said he won't be getting a rematch or shot at the 135 title for awhile.

Barao also didn't get paid his show money for UFC 177... I think that's fair, but some fans think that's unfair.

I'm not sure if Cejudo got his show money... but I'm gonna since DFW was so pissed about him missing weight as well he probably didn't.

I know Jorgensen got his show and win money, so I highly doubt Cejudo got paid. If he did it was a fraction of what he would have.
