We prove that the present experimental constraints are already enough to rule out the possibility of the 125 GeV Higgs found at LHC being the second lightest Higgs in a general MSSM context, even with explicit CP violation in the Higgs potential. Contrary to previous studies, we are able to eliminate this possibility analytically with a relatively small number of observables. We show that the present LHC constraints on the diphoton signal strength, tau-tau production through Higgs and indirect flavor bounds are enough to preclude the possibility of H2 being the observed Higgs with mH ~ 125 GeV within an MSSM context, without leaving room for finely tuned cancellations.
