Henry Cejudo Talks About Injury Scare
Fight fans were worried upon reading a report from MyMMANews.com’s Eric Kowal, who noted that sources told him Cejudo may have been injured in the UFC workout room and screamed as if he tore something:
Cejudo later told reporters that he did bang his right knee a little bit, but he is ready to roll (via MMAJunkie.com):
“No, no – absolutely not. I’m good, I’m strong, I’m healthy. I don’t know where that came from. I did have a little bump on my knee, my right knee. I hit the edge of the damn corner. It hurt. That’s it.”
