Henry Cejudo Considering Wrestling Comeback?
Fresh off his first match back since losing in the 2012 Olympic Trials, Henry Cejudo may have an itch to scratch in regards to wrestling.  Cejudo is currently fighting in the UFC.  Cejudo has a perfect 8-0 record in MMA including a March 14th victory where he made his Flyweight debut.  

Cejudo, the 2008 Olympic Champion at 55KG recently wrestled Tony Ramos at AGON 5 in a Freestyle match.  Cejudo looked to be in good form before Ramos executed a vintage Tony Ramos comeback to down the Olympic Champ late. 

Immediately after the loss, Henry sent out this post on Instagram which seemed to indicate he didn't give Ramos the best version of Henry Cejudo:


Hey guys came up a little short in my wrestling exhibition yesterday. Even though I was winning the whole match till the last 20seconds, I got caught over extending my inside-trip. I gave you guys a 100% but only functioning on 60%. I just came out of surgery after braking part of my bone when I kicked my opponent in the elbow three weeks ago in my last UFC fight. Well, I just got surgery 9 days prior to the match which prevented me from shooting. Over all, we displayed a great wrestling match that a lot of people are calling it match of the year. I didn't wrestle for me but for the great sport of wrestling that has molded me to the person that I am today. Congratulations to all the winners and everybody who made the event possible. Rio maybe calling Henry Cejudo for 2016? :) #godisgood #besomebody #themessenger #wrestling #iowa #dale

A little while later he sent this tweet which lead many in the wrestling community to speculate whether Cejudo may consider a comeback.  Cejudo had tremendous success wrestling under one of Tony Ramos' current coaches, Terry Brands.
