Henry Cejudo and Mike Tyson had been seen together on AEW and the former UFC star had a ton of praise for Iron Mike

Former UFC two-division champion, Henry Cejudo, has spent a lot of time with Mike Tyson.

Cejudo, who is called Triple C, seems to have trained a bit with Iron Mike. The pair were also seen together on wrestling promotion AEW, and Tyson looks to be in fantastic shape.

The former world champion had been in the doldrums but is preparing for an exhibition clash against Roy Jones.

This should be an incredible clash and Cejudo opened up on the boxing legend. Triple C was speaking to the Schmo and was asked how Tyson was doing:

“Mike is looking good, he is looking good. He is strong, he is healthy, I have never seen him so committed to fight in this November.

“He has got his old school trainers, he is doing a whole reunion, using technology. Doesn’t stop him from smoking weed but he is doing awesome.”

Learning from the best

While Tyson has had problems in the past, he seems to be a different person now. The former boxing champion also seems to have rubbed off his charm on Cejudo.

Triple C was asked what he learned from Tyson and he had a ton of praise for him:

“If you know uncle Mike, he is a giver. He is a guy who loves to give advice. Uncle Mike is legit, he is a beautiful person.”

While Tyson vs Jones is a fight that will take place, Cejudo was open to facing Alexander Volkanovski.

Triple C added that this was the only fight that he was willing to take to come out of his retirement. Winning this clash would also make him the first three-division UFC champion.

Cejudo called Volkanovski the “biggest midget” too and it will be interesting to see if this clash takes place later in the UFC.
