Was Nikki Bella the “good-luck charm” for UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo at UFC Brooklyn?

Nikki Bella and Henry Cejudo

Twin Magic is alive and well in 2019 — “magic” being the operative word.

After a chance encounter with The Bella Twins on a recent flight, UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo successfully defended his title against Bantamweight Champion T.J. Dillashaw in a mere 32 seconds at UFC Brooklyn Saturday night. Nikki Bella would like to think that she had something to do with that victory, later suggesting she might have been a “good-luck charm” for the Olympic gold medalist.

Cejudo revealed on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show that, during the aforementioned flight, he broke the ice by asking Nikki to record a greeting for his niece. But after seeing “The Messenger” gush about Fearless Nikki during the interview, Nikki recorded a second message — this one intended for the UFC Flyweight Champion himself. Helwani posted the video on Twitter.

“I want to say, first of all, congrats on your really big win,” Nikki says in the video. “I would like to think that, you know, maybe, possibly, I was a good-luck charm, you know, meeting you on the flight. And I’m hoping that maybe one day, in Arizona, you can train me before I get back into that ring.”

She also offered to send Cejudo a bottle of Belle Radici wine in celebration of his victory.

Will we soon see Nikki add some new UFC-inspired moves to her repertoire? And when might we see Nikki back in the WWE ring? For the latest, be sure to follow @BellaTwins on Twitter.
