UFC Champ and Olympic gold medalist, Henry Cejudo, is back in action with some heavy contact and lots of grappling … only he’s doing it with a smoking hot Brazilian model. Triple C is currently dating a 24-year-old model named Ana, and The Blast is told the two have been romantically involved for about 3 months.
The loving couple was recently spotted on a romantic vacation in Tulum, Mexico, where they enjoyed swimming with dolphins, playing with seals and hitting the beach for some PDA.
The Blast obtained exclusive photos from Henry Cejudo and Ana’s vacation in paradise, and the two lovebirds were definitely having a good time in Tulum. As for how they met, sources close to the situation tell us they were initially set up by mutual friends after the former UFC flyweight champion and UFC bantamweight champion broke up with his longtime girlfriend. We’re told 33-year-old Triple C and 24-year-old Ana immediately hit it off and have been spending a ton of time together.
In addition to the sea creature adventures, we’re told Henry Cejudo arranged for Ana to have her portrait painted while in Mexico. It’s a nice break for the MMA star, as he shocked many after a surprise retirement from professional fighting following his dominating win over Dominick Cruz back in May at UFC 249.
Cejudo’s retirement was met with skepticism, as the MMA star appeared to be making a move towards the next phase in his career … which he confirmed soon after by making it clear he would be willing to fight again under the right circumstances, and with the right paycheck.
It’s been a big year of changes for the 33-year-old Olympian, who is still the youngest American to ever win gold in wrestling after crushing the competition during the 2008 Beijing Games.
Cejudo may be hinting at the next phase in his fighting career after hanging with Mike Tyson at the legendary boxer’s Tyson Ranch offices in El Segundo, CA while the two worked on boxing technique.
As we previously reported, Tyson explained to Cejudo how he fires his glutes and core when he throws a punch and watched on as Cejudo landed successful combinations with impressive force.
