Henry Cejudo is feeling himself after stopping TJ Dillashaw in 32-seconds at UFC on ESPN+ 1.
Appearing on Ariel Helwani's MMA show, Cejudo discussed running into the Bella Twins on a plane prior to the fight and how he used his niece to talk to her.
"Nikki Bella has been my biggest crush so when she was sitting next to me, I was like, [Freaking out] 'How am I gonna approach this?' Then I thought, my little niece is nine years old and she loves the Bella Twins. She was Nikki Bella for Halloween and had a Bella birthday theme. I approach them and was like, 'Can you give my niece a shoutout?' She was super nice. I’m single, trilingual and ready to mingle"
Yes we are!! So nice to meet you! Go kick some a**! We can’t wait to train with you soon! N https://t.co/8uJuIYEiEQ— Nikki & Brie (@BellaTwins) January 13, 2019
Nikki Bella posted a response, congratulating Cejudo on his victory.
Oh my word.@HenryCejudo: I hope you’re sitting down.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) January 22, 2019
Nikki Bella of The @BellaTwins saw your interview on my show yesterday and sent you this! First you save the flyweights and now this?! What a time to be Henry Cejudo.

Cejudo took Nikki's words to heart and is already preparing to look his best.
Ok, business is really picking up here. Ol’ flyweight savior, the Olympic Gold medalist @HenryCejudo has responded to Nikki Bella (@BellaTwins) and is out here just shooting shots. (He’s playing it cool. He was freaking earlier). Incredible magic going on here. #HelwaniShow pic.twitter.com/ZRa9a0sxmo— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) January 22, 2019
Bella has had a very public relationship and break up with WWE superstar John Cena. She is reportedly dating her former Dancing With Stars partner Artem Chigvintsev.
