UFC 215 results: Henry Cejudo looks sharp in win over Wilson Reis

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

EDMONTON, Alberta -- It took a couple fights to get there, but Henry Cejudo, the can’t-miss prospect and potential future champion, is back.

The 2008 Olympic wrestling gold medalist didn’t look himself in his last two fights, losses to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez.

But Cejudo looked tremendous at UFC 215 on Saturday night against Wilson Reis. Cejudo’s striking and wrestling was on point as he earned a second-round TKO at Rogers Place.

“I’m just improving,” Cejudo said after upping his record to 11-2. “I’m just evolving. I want those 50 G’s.”

Cejudo jumped on Reis from the outset, peppering him with a wide variety of punches and kicks and always pressing forward. He was relentless when the fight hit the ground as well, never giving Reis a second of rest.

Things didn’t take long in the second, as Cejudo dropped Reis with a big right hand. A few punches later, the bout was waved off at the 25-second mark.

Reis dropped to 22-8 with his second straight stoppage loss, having lost to Johnson last time out.
