Everyone is ultra sensitive when it comes to Simone Biles. Former two-division UFC champion Henry Cejudo disagrees with Simone Biles quitting in the Olympics. The former Olympian says Biles “needs to check herself” and be shown some “tough love.” Cejudo, who is the only person to win an Olympic gold medal and a UFC championship, winning gold in freestyle wrestling at the age of 21 at the 2008 Olympics, says all Biles needs is a little “tough love” and a “kick in the arse.”

“I believe Simone Biles pulling out of this thing is like, I think she really needs to check herself,” said Cejudo, who at the time of his Olympics win was the youngest American to win gold in wrestling. “I think there’s time for a little bit of tough love. ​​If she was my sister, this is exactly what I would do,” said Cejudo. “So, I would never say something that I wouldn’t do to my personal family or anything like that. Or even for me, because I do believe sometimes we do need a nice kick in the arse.”

He then added, “People say the media created her and you know they put upon this pressure. Not really. They only give you a platform, a limelight. It’s up to you to believe it and to accept it. If you start to think you’re the GOAT and the greatest of all time, then that’s on you.”

Cejudo continued, “There’s two things that pressure can do. Pressure could either break, or it could make diamonds. Pressure could either bust pipes or it can create and make diamonds. You choose what to do for it, or what to do with it, remember that.”
