Former dual UFC champion Henry Cejudo, who pulled out of the fight against Marlon Vera due to an injury, was confirmed not in the gym, but during an analytical analysis of the upcoming unification fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Yair Rodriguez.
At some point, the “Triple Champion” began to show how dangerous the Mexican’s elbows were in the stalls, and injured his right shoulder.
“Oh, I just injured my shoulder,” the American said, grimacing in pain and clutching his shoulder.
A few hours ago, Henry Cejudo posted a video in which he announced that he was dropping out of the UFC 292 tournament because he tore a ligament in his right shoulder. At the same time, the former UFC champion made it clear that after the recovery, which will take from six to eight weeks, he is not going to return to the fight with the Ecuadorian, but expects to share the octagon with Merab Dvalishili or Brandon Mareno.
Recall that the UFC 292 tournament will take place on August 19 in Boston, and its main event will be the bantamweight title fight between Aljamain Sterling and Sean O’Malley.
