The UFC announced yesterday that they have signed Henry Cejudo, who won the Olympic Gold Medal in freestyle wrestling at 121lbs in 2008 to a deal with the company.

Cejudo (6-0, MMA) had an offer on the table from the WWE to join the company’s developmental system and look to become a top hispanic babyface in the future due to his name value, however he rejected the deal and will make his UFC debut at next month’s UFC 177 pay-per-view in a flyweight bout against Scott Jorgensen.
