Henry Cejudo names his top five UFC fighters, Khabib Nurmagomedov doesn’t make the cut

By Susan Cox - February 24, 2022

Henry Cejudo, ‘Triple C’ has named his top five UFC fighters when speaking with Dave Schmulenson on ‘The Triple C & Schmo Show’, their YouTube podcast.

Henry Cejudo, Conor McGregor,

When asked by the Schmo, Cejudo, wearing a crown, stated these were his top 5:

  • Triple C
  • The King of Cringe
  • C4
  • The Greatest Combat Athlete
  • Henry Cejudo

Hmmm, that sounds a bit arrogant? OK, it was just humour. Cejudo did offer us a more realistic list – ‘The Kings List’ which consisted of:

  1. Jon Jones
  2. Demetrious Johnson
  3. Anderson Silva
  4. Henry Cejudo
  5. Georges St-Pierre

‘Triple C’  speaking about himself, continued:

“I literally beat the best guys in the world. I beat three Hall of Famers’ in my last four fights, Demetrious Johnson, T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.”

Apparently Khabib Nurmagomedov did not make it into Cejudos’ top 5 list of fighters. When asked about the omission of ‘The Eagle‘, Henry Cejudo replied:

“I believe he’s top 10, he’s only had 12 fights in the UFC like me. If he was to win a second bout and there was another title then he would even be above me because he’d be undefeated. How many Hall of Famers’ has he beat?”
