Olympic wrestling gold medalist Henry Cejudo (5-0) was scheduled to face off against Saul Elizondo (6-3) for the co-main event of Legacy FC 25 on November 15th, but the bout was scrapped when Cejudo didn’t show up to the weigh-ins.
According to MMAJunkie.com, Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard stated that Cejudo had gotten so sick that he became unable to compete.
“We received a call yesterday afternoon from his manager that Henry was on weight, but that he was suffering from nausea and was light headed. His manager, Bill McFarlane, chose to take him to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a stomach flu. I plan on meeting with Bill and Henry after this event and figuring out the next course of action. We are obviously disappointed this fight is no longer taking place, but we have a stacked show and after this weekend we will all sit down and figure things out.”
Henry Cejudo had told MMAJunkie last week that if he could only fight once or twice a year, then he would seriously consider retirement. This latest setback certainly doesn’t look good for his MMA career.
Legacy FC has yet to announce when his next fight will take place.
