UFC champ Henry Cejudo — the man who beat Demetrious Johnson — says he’s flattered Mark Wahlberg thinks his life story might be a film … and says he is aware of precisely who ought to play him!
Cejudo’s story is fairly superb — he grew up poor in South Central L.A. … considered one of 7 kids … his drug-addicted father was deported and died when Henry was 20.
But, he labored like hell to be probably the greatest wrestlers on this planet — and gained a gold medal on the 2008 Beijing Summer Games when he was solely 21.
Then on Saturday — at age 31 — he beat DJ (one of many best UFC fighters ever) to win the UFC flyweight title. Amazing.
Wahlberg informed us Cejudo’s story has film potential … and he would know. And, you possibly can inform Henry is tremendous flattered.
