“Hey @danawhite my retirement was honest however watching you guys give belts to those “RENT A champs” makes me CrInGe! – The one and solely Triple C. #bendtheknee”.
As everyone knows, Cejudo is the form of fighter that chases historical past as opposed to what’s thought of to be standard on this sport, and that’s exactly why he’s occupied with going after Alexander Volkanovski’s Featherweight Championship.
If he managed to beat “The Nice” then he’d turn into the primary fighter in UFC historical past to win a belt in three completely different divisions. After Volkanovski edged out a slender win over Max Holloway of their current rematch, Cejudo had his personal set of ideas on the title image at 145 kilos.
“I really feel like me profitable a 3rd belt within the UFC would cement me as the best fighter of all time within the sport of combined martial arts, as a result of no one will be capable to do this however ‘Triple C,’” Cejudo mentioned (by way of MMA Junkie).
“I believed Holloway most likely received that battle,” Cejudo mentioned. “Holloway received, man. It’s unlucky. I used to be going for Volkanovski as a result of I feel it’s only a higher matchup for me. He’s solely about 2 inches taller than me, so I really feel like he’d be a greater matchup for me if we had been to ever battle – if he wasn’t so scared and never scared to signal the rattling contract.”
Do you assume we’ll ever see Henry Cejudo again within the Octagon?
