UFC 249 marks the end of some of the craziest moments in militant sports history, from the 20-second violent co of Francis Naganur to Zyrginho Rosensarik to Justin Gaitz to the 12-fight winning streak inside Tony Ferguson’s octagon.
However, what surprised most people was the UFC Bantamweight Champion. Henry Sejudo The co-headliner announced his retirement after a fight against Dominic Cruz at UFC 249.

I’m talking TMZ Sports, Abedelaziz compares Sejudo’s situation with his other high-profile clients – Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“Every time Khabib fights, I think I’m done. 2 weeks later, ‘Do you think I should fight?’ Because these guys are their main ones. Henry is coming to his prime. How will you retire in your prime? Henry is on everyone’s knees at the moment. I don’t think he will retire. You will see him fight in the summer. “
