The Legacy Fighting Championship has announced their biggest signing to date with the signing of 2008 Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo. The talented MMA prospect will make his debut for the Texas-based promotion on October 11 at Legacy FC 24 on AXS TV. Promotion officials made the announcement earlier in the weekend.
Legacy FC president Mick Maynard expressed his excitement over the deal via press release:
“Since finding out that Henry was moving into MMA, I have pursued the possibility of him competing for us. Henry is an exceptional athlete and individual that is exactly the kind of person we look for to represent Legacy.”
Cejudo has amassed a 4-0 record in MMA, with all fights being finished via knockout or submission since his March debut. Cejudo’s management informed MMAFrenzy earlier this year that the Mexican-American fighter would be taking a break after his last fight in May to spend extensive time in Brazil to help round out his MMA base.
Henry Cejudo will make his debut at Legacy 24 against Ryan Hollis (4-2) and the fight will take place at flyweight.
