Henry Cejudo Reveals He Sprained His Ankle Ahead Of UFC 238

It turns out Henry Cejudo didn’t just suffer a bump on his knee.

Cejudo Suffered Sprained Ankle During UFC 238 Fight Week

Cejudo went on to finish Marlon Moraes via third-round TKO to become the new UFC bantamweight champion. “The Messenager,” or “Triple C” as he likes to be called now, appeared at the UFC 238 post-fight press conference and admitted that he actually sprained his ankle (via MMAJunkie.com):

“I had suffered it on Tuesday night. The first night that we got there, the UFC mats, they were kind of some cheap tape, and I stepped on the crack, which I thought it was sealed together, and I sprained my ankle.

“So the rumors were true. But I kind of had to keep it between myself, get therapy along the week. I was able to fight through adversity again, going in with adversity and then getting kicked exactly where it was hurting. I think that’s what also makes this victory extremely special.”
