The topic of the greatest fighter in the history of MMA will always be relevant and not everyone will ever agree on one name. Many currently see Jon Jones and Georges St-Pierre as the two greatest, but some will say they are Anderson Silva, Khabib Nurmagomedov or Fedor Emelianenko.
It is difficult to agree on a debate in which the arguments are not clearly defined. However, it is even harder to decide who is the greatest fighter of all time, that is, who is the greatest athlete in the history of all martial arts.
This is the term we most often hear from the mouth of Henry Cejudo. The UFC's former fly and bantamweight champion, in addition to belts in two different weight categories, also won Olympic gold medals in wrestling at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
This is a really great summary and the greatest achievements in two different martial arts. Cejudo now desperately wants the opportunity to attack the UFC lightweight belt. This would make him the first fighter to win titles in three different weight categories under the auspices of the UFC.
However, UFC President Dana White does not want to give him such an opportunity at the moment. With this achievement, Cejudo would only further strengthen his status among the greatest fighters in history, but the famous manager Ali Abdelaziz believes that Cejudo is already the greatest in the history of martial arts.
Although Ali, apart from Cejudo, also collaborates with fighters such as Khabib Nurmagomedov and Kamaru Usman, he did not hesitate to single out one name.
‘‘ Henry wants respect. Henry respects himself, but I don’t think people give him the respect he deserves.
He is the greatest martial athlete in history." "These are not DC (Cormier), it is not Khabib (Nurmagomedov), nor Kamaru (Usman). I'm talking about all martial arts. He (Cejudo) is an Olympic champion and winner of titles in two weight categories.
No one will ever do what he can. It is impossible, "Abdelaziz said in an interview with ESPN's Brett Okamoto, and then gave a name that could theoretically surpass Cejudo's achievements. ‘‘ If Kayla comes to the UFC one day and becomes a champion, then she will overtake him.
But so far, Henry Cejudo is the greatest athlete in the history of martial arts, ’’ Abdelaziz added. By the way, Kayla Harrison is a two-time Olympic champion in judo, and is currently undefeated in 12 professional MMA appearances.
However, she won against slightly weaker competition and is still eager to come to the UFC to try her best. However, according to current information, Kayla Harrison is likely to re-sign a contract with the PFL, that is, coming to the UFC will wait for now.
