Merab Dvalishvili Will Represent Mexico At UFC 298 After Henry Cejudo Denounced Mexican Flag

Georgian fighter Merab Dvalishvili will represent Mexico to troll Henry Cejudo.

Cejudo, who is Mexican-American and represented the United States in the Olympics, famously said that he would never wear the Mexican flag because he mostly identifies as an American.

“My message today, guys – as a Latino-American – because first and foremost I’m American… I was born in this country. I was raised in this country. You guys will me – as much as I love my culture – you guys will never see me with a Mexican flag,”

To mock Cejudo, Merab brought out a Mexican flag to huge cheers from the California audience in attendance.

“I’m going to make Mexican people happy, Mexican people need to represent Mexican flag…I’m going to represent Mexico on February 17th…

Cejudo didn’t seem to enjoy Merab’s schtick and told him to be ready on Saturday.
