Cejudo adds another belt with TKO of Moraes

CHICAGO -- Henry Cejudo has an Olympic wrestling gold medal. He has the UFC flyweight title. And now, one of the best combat sports athletes of all time has added some more gold to his collection: the UFC bantamweight title.

Cejudo stopped Marlon Moraes via TKO with ground and pound at 4:51 of the third round Saturday night in the main event of UFC 238 at United Center. The bout was for the vacant bantamweight title forfeited earlier this year by TJ Dillashaw due to a failed drug test.

"I'm not champ-champ," Cejudo said in an impassioned postfight speech.
