Speaking on his youtube channel Henry said:
“I think Alex is gonna get it, This is why it’s so important that as a mixed martial artist that you become well-rounded. That you’re not just a striker with good defense. Because what happens when you get that other good striker that has better striking than you then you can’t take him down? Cause that’s kinda where we’re at now with Pereira and Adesanya.”Henry Cejudo
Cejudo believes every MMA champion has to have an all-rounded game. he should not rely on only one aspect of fighting. This becomes a problem when you face someone who has better skills in that area.
“As good as Israel is, Alexander just still has better striking. He knocked him out the last time they fought, he beat him the first time. If this fight goes on its feet, I just gotta go with Pereira.”Henry Cejudo
Adesanya is scheduled to defend his middleweight title against one of the toughest fighters in Alex Pereira who has already knocked him out two times in their kickboxing match.
