Report: Henry Cejudo breaks ankle escaping fire; UFC 218 bout vs. Sergio Pettis in danger

Deadly fires in Southern California caused mass evacuations on Monday, and it appears they may have seriously impacted one high-profile UFC fighter.

Henry Cejudo (11-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC), who is scheduled to fight Sergio Pettis (16-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) at December’s UFC 218 event, reportedly suffered a broken ankle while jumping off a second-floor balcony during an evacuation. The news comes from sfchronicle.com.

“UFC fighter Henry Cejudo didn’t evacuate from the Fountaingrove Inn in Santa Rosa and broke his ankle jumping from a second-story balcony,” the report reads.

Cejudo and his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, did not immediately respond for comment today when contacted by MMAjunkie. UFC officials haven’t made a formal announcement regarding the the status of the bout.

Matheus Aquino, a manager to Bellator standouts and Cejudo training partners Patricio and Patricky Freire, wrote on Twitter that the report was accurate (via Twitter):

UFC 218 takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the final bout order hasn’t been finalized.

If Cejudo, No. 3 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA flyweight rankings, did in fact suffer a broken ankle, it’s likely he wouldn’t be recovered in time to compete against No. 6-ranked Pettis in what many considered a title-eliminator in the UFC flyweight division.

“The Messenger” is coming off a second-round knockout of Wilson Reis at UFC 215 in September. The performance snapped a two-fight losing skid that included Cejudo’s title loss to 125-pound champ Demetrious Johnson.
