Demetrious Johnson can appreciate Henry Cejudo ’s recent comments about their legendary UFC 227 fight. After adding another all-time great to his resume by successfully defending his bantamweight title against Dominick Cruz last weekend at UFC 249, Cejudo announced his retirement. Chatting to the media backstage after the card, Cejudo said the defining moment in his MMA career is when he dethroned longtime UFC flyweight champion Johnson in 2018. And for his part, “Mighty Mouse” says he appreciates the sentiment. “That was awesome that Henry Cejudo said that,” Johnson told MMA Junkie. “I’ve never had anything bad to say about Henry, I think he’s hilarious with the whole ‘Triple C.’ You can’t deny that man, flyweight champ, bantamweight champ and let me remind you, he’s got a gold medal too, so yeah, I think him beating me was a big thing in his career, especially that he sees me as one of the greatest of all time and for him to say that, it’s awesome.
