This is the fight, henry cejudo is a nobody and wont ever beat mighty mouse or even get close, he will never be any body. If he fought any of these three guys of Benavidez Dodson or mighty mouse then I would bet my 500,000 house on it with about two million dollars against him to. He is a nobody. A nobody, I make cage rank. CAge rank is praying to god that I never leave this comments for fights because I make cage rank more money because of my concerned comments.
