Henry Cejudo, Olympic Gold Medalist, Makes MMA Debut March 2

Henry Cejudo, who has been working hard to help with the push to keep wrestling as an Olympic sport, has a date for his MMA debut.

Cejudo, who captured gold for the United States at the 2008 Summer Olympics, will face Michael Poe at bantamweight in the co-main event of a World Fighting Federation event in Arizona.

Earlier this week, the IOC announced that they are planning to cut wrestling beginning with the 2020 Olympics. The outrage has been boisterous by the community, but it remains unknown if the committee will change their minds.
