11:58 AM ET 03.04 | Henry Cejudo's first MMA fight proved to be a positive one. Cejudo, who won a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Games in freestyle wrestling, defeated Michal Poe via first-round TKO at a World Fighting Federation event this past Saturday night. "It was different. It's a little faster paced here. I was a little shocked," said Cejudo. "That dude has a pair of cojones on him. He just came out swinging. He caught me with a shot but it was nothing crazy. I don't like getting hit. I really work on my defense a lot, that's what makes me a good fighter. It's part of the sport, getting hit."
