Henry Cejudo Compares Himself To Holly Holm, Says He’ll “Absolutely” Knock Out Johnson

Henry Cejudo is scheduled to fight Demetrious Johnson for the flyweight title at UFC 197, and he sounds confident going in to the fight. Cejudo recently spoke with MMAMania about the upcoming bout, and says he plans to win via knockout.

“Absolutely (expecting to knock him out). I am ready for a five-round fight, but I believe I can. He’s going to feel it man,” Cejudo said. “It’s like Holly Holm told Ronda Rousey, the difference between her and every other girl she fought is the simply answer that I’m a different athlete. I feel like this is how I feel. I’m a different athlete, breed, and you see that and he will feel it. He’s fought tough competition, and he lost to Dominick Cruz. But, our styles are going to mesh very well. He’s going to run, kick my front leg or take me down. I doubt he’ll try to pressure me. But, were ready for every angle.”

UFC 197 takes place in Las Vegas on April 23rd, and will be headlined by Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones II.
