Henry Cejudo suffers burns on his right foot while escaping fire
If you haven’t been watching the news, parts of California are on fire. Apparently, there was a fundraiser with a grip of celebrity athletes in Santa Rosa, CA. Fires ripped through the area and burned down resorts and wineries in the area, causing an insane scene.
Susan Slusser reported what happened, for sfchronicle.com:
A who’s who of athletes — Olympians, Hall of Famers — fled the Wine Country fires early Monday morning after attending Ronnie Lott’s celebrity fundraiser at Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa.
Former Giants outfielder Barry Bonds wound up shuttling guests who did not have rides away from Mayacama when the villas at the course were evacuated. Longtime Kansas City pitcher Bret Saberhagen left his golf clubs in the parking lot in order to fit Olympic speedskater Dan Jansen and his wife into his rental car. And onetime Dodgers closer Eric Gagne raised the alarm at a second hotel to which the celebrities were sent, pounding on doors to make sure occupants were out.
According to Saberhagen and other attendees, UFC fighter Henry Cejudo didn’t evacuate from the Fountaingrove Inn in Santa Rosa and broke his ankle jumping from a second-story balcony.
MMAFighting has since debunked the article claiming the broken ankle:
“However, contrary to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle, Cejudo told MMAFighting.com on Tuesday that he did not suffer a broken ankle trying to escape Monday in Santa Rosa, Calif. He did suffer burns on his right foot, though.”
Henry provided them with pictures to show his burned feet.
