Whatever Henry Cejudo is up to, he is looking to be prepared. That is why he has trusted in the guidance of Mike Tyson, one of the top heavyweight boxers in the world.
A former UFC Flyweight and Bantamweight Champion, Cejudo (16-2) retired from active MMA competition following a win over Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 back in May. He has since been seen with Mike Tyson, training with him and appearing on AEW Dynamite. Tyson (50-6, 2NC) is looking to teach Cejudo a thing or two. In a recent training video, Tyson is seen showing Cejudo how to hit a vicious uppercut.
Cejudo moves fast in the clip, with Tyson telling him to make sure to be balanced.
“Training with the legendary @kingsmma_hb and the watchful eye of Uncle Mike.” – Cejudo

The “C4” hashtag is an add-on from his “Triple C” nickname. It is unknown if this adds to the rumors that Cejudo would consider a career in boxing. The Olympic wrestling champion recently called out Golden Boy’s Ryan Garcia to fight him in the ring.
In his prime, Tyson’s uppercut was filthy. We won 44 of his 50 wins via knockout, each more devastating than the last. He retired from active competition in 2005 but announced his intentions to return to the ring this year. The 53-year-old is looking to compete in exhibition bouts and has received several offers to fight.
Stay tuned for updates regarding Cejudo’s post-MMA career.
