UFC flyweight Scott Jorgensen was live-streaming Destiny on the Major League Gaming website. As fun as that was independently, he was multitasking and trashing on Henry Cejudo, who failed to make weight for their canceled fight at UFC 177. In part, Cejudo blamed his age for the failed cut.
“Everything was good, I had gotten down to 130 the night before the weigh-ins, and I was only four pounds away from my goal,” he said to Ariel Helwani. “And that night I just had severe cramping. I couldn’t sleep. Every 10 minutes or so I had cramping going on in my back, in my thigh, in my foot, just pretty much every part of my body. It’s not that I’m fat or I’m overweight, I’m very lean. My body had pretty much just taken a toll. And it’s happened a couple of times already. I’ve always thought I could get down to — because I’ve done it my whole life — get down to 125, but it’s a little different now. I’m much older.”
According to Jorgensen, who was answering questions posed in chat, he wasn’t paid any win bonus money for the fight. But most importantly, he’s annoyed by Cejudo’s weight problems. When asked what Henry’s explanation was, he answered, “I imagined it being something like, ‘I’m a weak-minded individual.’”
