Deiveson Figueiredo and Henry Cejudo celebrations post UFC 270 might have gotten out of hands as the cops had to intervene.
Deiveson Figueiredo reclaimed his most precious flyweight belt at UFC 270 by defeating his arch-nemesis, Brandon Moreno after a five-round scarp. Henry Cejudo, who helped Figueiredo reclaim his title is as happy as the Brazilian himself. Recently, the two stars were partying to celebrate their victory at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. They partied so hard, the cops had to invite themselves and ask them to tone it down.
Henry posted a clipping of the cops leaving a friendly warning to turn things down a notch as Deiveson stood with his belt on the shoulder. “We’ve been partying so hard we got the cops called on us. Party till 6 in the morning music,” wrote Cejudo in his Instagram caption.
Cejudo and Deiveson have been trolling and going crazy since that win against Brandon Moreno and rightly so. The trilogy fight was a very close one and the Brazilian is eyeing a fourth fight to settle the score. The two fighters are currently 1-1-1 in the three fights. Watch Henry and Deiveson talking to the cops below:
Henry Cejudo taking Deiveson Figueiredo, Zhang Weili, and even Jon Jones under his wing
Henry is a former two-division UFC champion. He managed to win both the flyweight and bantamweight belts and also successfully defend them. Since his retirement, Cejudo has helped legends like Deiveson, Zhang Weili, and very recently Jon Jones. “Triple C” also helped the strawweight former champion Zhang Weili in her rematch against Rose Namajunas at UFC 268.
Deiveson also has publicly credited the former flyweight champion for his useful advice. Cejudo also has revealed that the fight against Moreno was personal given their history from The Ultimate Fighter. Moreno helped Henry’s former rival, Joesph Benavidez train where he went on to win the fight. Henry and Moreno were good friends heading into TUF.
After Jones was banned from his old gym, Jackson-Wink, the former light heavyweight champion went to Cejudo’s gym to train. The fighter is expected to make his heavyweight debut in 2022 and Cejudo will most definitely help him achieve greatness.
