“I believe I’ve achieved every little thing in MMA, Olympic champ, flyweight champ, bantamweight champ, I’ve defended each of my titles,” Cejudo informed TMZ. “I believe the one one I need to do it’s to make Ryan Garcia bend the knee.
“I actually don’t assume he’s that good. I actually don’t. I believe with a correct group, the correct sport plan, I consider I may make him bend the knee in entrance of Oscar De La Hoya. I really feel like I’ve the instruments, the ability, the energy, the expertise, and we wanna make this occur, doubtlessly in Saudi Arabia so we acquired the cash man. We acquired the cash man that’s keen to pay each of us. It’s simply as much as ‘Randy Sweet’ Garcia to signal that contract.”
Garcia, 21, is 20-0, with 17 of these victories by knockout. He’s scored finishes in his previous 4 fights, together with back-to-back first-round KOs in his two most up-to-date bouts.
