      These guys traded a few strikes, and Cejudo rolled his ankle early in the first round. Johnson was blasting him with a lot of leg kicks, and both of Cejudo's knees were really red, but he seemed to be fighting through whatever his issue was. He blasted Johnson with some big strikes throughout the round, but I'm still going to have to score that round for Johnson.
     The second round was another round of clean back & forth striking, as Johnson continued to destroy the legs of Cejudo, but Cejudo was still working some decent boxing as well. Cejudo took down Johnson with a minute left in the second round, and he secured half mount. Cejudo spent the rest of the round basically just grinding on Johnson. He didn't do anything on the ground, but he might have stolen the round with the takedown.
     The third round was another fantastic round of striking, with Johnson picking apart Cejudo for the most part. There were a few scrambles, where Cejudo tried to take the fight to the ground, but Johnson's ability to scramble out of danger is fucking ridiculous. I have Johnson ahead 29-28 going into the Championship rounds.
     Johnson continued to beat up Cejudo on the feet for the first 3 minutes of the fourth round, and then Cejudo caught a kick and took down Johnson against the fence again. Cejudo spent the rest of the round on top, basically just grinding while throwing short punches. Cejudo probably stole that round with his 2 minutes of top control. I have this fight all tied up going into the final round.
     Johnson clearly won the first half of the round again in the fifth round, and then Cejudo shot for a takedown with 2 minutes left, but he couldn't quite get it, so he ended up with the back clinch. Cejudo tried to slam him, but Johnson spun out of that, and took control of the clinch. Cejudo tripped Johnson with 90 seconds left in the round, and Johnson popped back up immediately. The round ended with a wild barrage of strikes going both ways. This fight was insanely close, it could go either way, technically I'm leaning toward a 48-47 scorecard in favor of Cejudo, but I don't think he did quite enough to "take the belt" from the Champ, so I don't know man... This shit was almost too close to call, so I hope Johnson keeps his belt. The judges basically agreed with me, giving the split-decision victory to Henry Cejudo. That's pretty insane. Great fight by both fighters.

      These guys traded a few random strikes, and then Cejudo scored a quick takedown a minute into the round, landing in side control. Pettis tried to squirm to improve his position, but Cejudo took his back in the process, and continued to wrestle the shit out of him while trying to sink his hooks in. Cejudo spent most of the round trying to beat up Pettis a little bit on the ground, but for the most part, it was all about wrestling, and not so much about actual damage offense. Cejudo finally landed some really hard shots in the final 10 seconds. Round one clearly goes to Cejudo.
     Pettis came out in the second round and landed some hard punches & kicks, while it was taking Cejudo a minute to really get anything started. Cejudo just kind of plowed through Pettis 90 seconds into the round, and ended up inside his guard. There was a bit of a stalemate there for a while, and then Cejudo passed to take Pettis's back with 90 seconds left in the round. He then tried to pick him up and slam him, but Pettis did a good job avoiding any actual drop. I'm assuming Cejudo is winning this fight, 20-18, going into the final round, based entirely on his wrestling, even though he's not really doing any damage at all. Pettis landed some solid strikes in that second round though.
     The final round started with a minute of stalemate striking, and then Cejudo scored another takedown, landed back inside Pettis's guard, and continued to just grind all over him. Pettis worked his way back to his feet with a minute left in the fight, but he didn't have enough time to really make anything magical happen. This fight was pretty boring, but congrats to Cejudo for taking out a guy that was quickly climbing the Flyweight rankings, with a boring unanimous decision victory.

      Cejudo started the first round by throwing some FAST & HEAVY punches, and he clipped Reis with a lot of shots, and Cejudo also landed some big kicks as well. Reis landed a few solid kicks of his own, but he wasn't able to match the pace that Cejudo was throwing at him. Cejudo landed a knee, and then took down Reis halfway through the round, holding onto the back clinch. They reset with 2 minutes left in the round. Wilson attempted a single leg takedown with 90 seconds left in the round, but Cejudo was able to stuff the shot with ease. He blasted Reis with a head kick, and some more punches. Cejudo dropped Reis with a minute left in the round, but Reis popped back up, and tried to clinch. Cejudo scored a quick single leg takedown with 15 seconds left in the round. Round one clearly goes to Henry Cejudo.
     Reis threw a fast body kick to start the second round, and then Cejudo dropped him with a big right hand, he stood above him, unloaded with some big punches, and the fight was stopped. That was a fantastic one-sided performance by Henry Cejudo, and it might have been the best performance of his career. I wasn't really interested in seeing him fight for the title again before this fight, but after that performance, I think he deserves a shot more than Ray Borg does. BUT, then again, considering he was on a 2-Fight losing streak before this fight, I'm not really sure where this win puts him in the rankings. Either way, Henry Cejudo looked fucking amazing tonight.

      Cejudo came out swinging, and after a few violent exchanges, Cejudo rocked Benavidez, dropped him for a second, and then blasted him with a knee. Benavidez recovered fairly quickly, tried to fight back, Cejudo hit him with some hard kicks to the body, and then a kick to the "upper thigh" which Benavidez treated like a groin strike, so he was given time to recover. When the fight started back up, they both traded with violent strikes, and then Cejudo kicked Benavidez in the dick again (this time it was a clear groin shot). The referee took a point from Cejudo, which I think is a little ridiculous, since Benavidez doesn't really even have legs at all, so to try to hit him with a leg kick, if he squats at all, he's going to rest his balls on your foot, so... Cejudo continued to beat up Benavidez on the feet, and he also took him down and controlled him for a few seconds with some clinching. Round one goes to Cejudo in my opinion, or I guess it's a draw, since the ref took a point from Cejudo. Fuck that though.
     Benavidez threw a lot of strikes in the second round, and barely connected with anything at all. Cejudo continued to blast him with some violent punch combinations. Benavidez landed a few decent strikes, and showed some decent footwork, but Cejudo knocked Benavidez halfway across the octagon with some of his punch combinations, so I'm giving that round to Cejudo as well. In my opinion, this should be two clear rounds for Cejudo so far, he looks better than I've ever seen him tonight. I really hope that point for the groin shot isn't going to haunt him in the last round.
     Cejudo continued to beat up Benavidez with his slick striking in the final round, and then he grabbed his leg and tripped him 30 seconds into the round. The rest of the round was basically just a wild brawl, that in my opinion, Cejudo won, by landing more combinations, and showing WAY more pressure throughout the fight. This fight should be a clear 30-27 for Cejudo in my opinion, but 29-27 due to the point deduction. I won't be shocked by a draw, but if Benavidez somehow wins this fight, then I'll have to call it a robbery. Cejudo looked great tonight. The judges are fucking retarded. One judge gave the fight to Cejudo, and the other two gave Benavidez almost every round. Benavidez had his ass handed to him.

      FUCK YEAH! That was fucking INSANE!!! I really thought Henry Cejudo was going to be Johnson's toughest test so far, but Demetrious basically ran circles around him, picked him apart with punches, they clinched, and Cejudo took Johnson down with an aggressive trip, but Johnson kicked him halfway across the cage to get back to his feet. From there, it was all about the clinch, where Johnson fucking MAULED Cejudo, with brilliant knees to the body & chin, he fucking ROCKED the shit out of him with a big knee, Cejudo practically ran backwards to escape, and Johnson chased him down, and put him away with expertly placed strikes on his way down. Demetrious Johnson MAY just be the #1 pound for pound fighter in the entire world. We'll see what happens after the Jon Jones fight in a few minutes, but... HOLY SHIT man... Demetrious Johnson is fucking awesome!!!

      The first round had both guys boxing with each other, and throwing knees to the body from inside the clinch. It was a very close round, but I thought Cejudo landed the better shots, and was a LITTLE more active, so I gave the first round to Cejudo. The second round was another very even exchange, with both guys throwing punches, knees to the body, and sort of wildly trading positions inside the clinch. I guess I'll call that round a draw. The third round was more of the same, and I thought Cejudo won that one as well, so in my opinion, Cejudo won this one, 30-28, and for the most part, two of the judges agreed, giving Cejudo the split-decision victory. I guess he deserves a title shot now? I'd really like to see him be able to finish someone eventually though.

      This was a really good fight. Camus was an 11-1 underdog or some crazy shit like that, and I had them ranked dead even going into this fight. (Apparently I was the only person in the world that thought they were even?) Regardless of the rankings ahead of this fight, Camus did an outstanding job striking with Cejudo, he showed excellent boxing skills, he defended 10+ takedowns from Cejudo, and he only gave up one, at the very end of the fight. Cejudo did a decent job pressing Camus up against the fence, and when they would break away from the clinch, Cejudo scored some points, but in the end, I actually scored this fight, 29-28 in favor of the underdog Camus. But all 3 judges gave the fight to Cejudo. It's hard to believe that there wasn't a LITTLE BIT of Mexican bias going into those scorecards, for the hometown hero Cejudo. At the very least, Camus won the first round, but two judges gave all 3 rounds to Cejudo, so... Either way, really solid fight for both guys, and I'm glad that Camus did a good job showing that he can hang with top level guys like Cejudo.

      Well, there's not much to say about this fight, other than it was a clear 30-27 decision victory for Henry Cejudo. His wrestling is too good for people to be able to grapple with him, and his striking is good enough to allow him to win on points. Cejudo looked solid, and Cariaso looked like he clearly doesn't belong in the Top 10 at this point. Nice win for Cejudo.

      Wow, Henry Cejudo is kind of badass! He showed off his boxing skills, beating up Kimura for the entire fight, leaving him with tons of cuts on his face. Cejudo also threw some BRUTAL leg kicks. And apparently he's a great wrestler as well? He didn't really show that part of his game in this fight, but he didn't really need to, since he was clearly outclassing Kimura on the feet. So yeah, that was a pretty fantastic UFC debut for Henry Cejudo, and I'm going to be VERY interested in seeing where he goes from here.
