Following on from his historic win at the weekend, UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo has revealed that he has a crush on former WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella.
This past weekend Cejudo, also known as The Messenger, competed in the main event of the UFC’s first show on ESPN+ where he defended his Flyweight Championship against TJ Dillashaw. In somewhat shocking fashion, Cejudo dismantled Dillashaw in just over half a minute.
While appearing on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show to discuss the triumph, Henry wound up talking about his recent run in with The Bella Twins and his massive crush on Nikki Bella.
While there may not be much to read into here, it’s certainly worth noting that Nikki is back on the market in the wake of her break up with John Cena. Sure, some fans will continue to claim that they don’t care about this kind of stuff, but in the deep corners of their fandom they’ll all secretly be watching Total Bellas on catch up.
Nikki could certainly do a lot worse than Cejudo, who has been able to rise up through the ranks of the mixed martial arts world ever since his win over Demetrious Johnson back in the summer.
As for the Bellas, the rumours are growing regarding their potential appearance in the second annual 30-woman Royal Rumble match this weekend – which would make sense, given their association with the city of Phoenix.
When it comes to the Cejudo speculation, though, we’ll just have to wait and see how it all develops. Nice work, Ariel.
