Henry Cejudo has named his top five UFC fighters of all time, but he excluded a major name.
Of course, the self-proclaimed greatest combat sports athlete of all time included himself in the list, but undefeated former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov didn’t make Cejudo’s cut.
Cejudo, the former UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion who shares the same management as Nurmagomedov, explains that “The Eagle” didn’t make his list because he never became dual champ.
“I believe he’s top 10 because he only had 12 fights in the UFC like me,” Cejudo said on “The Triple C & Schmo Show.” “But if he was to win a second belt and then win another title then he would even be above me because that means he would be undefeated.”
Cejudo excluding Nurmagomedov might come as a surprise to some, but so will the order of his rankings. Check out Cejudo’s list from No. 5 to 1 below.
