It appears that Henry Cejudo could be brought out of retirement should a certain fight be booked.
Cejudo’s last fight saw him score a second-round TKO win over Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in Jacksonville, Florida at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. After the fight, he vacated the flyweight and bantamweight titles.
Cejudo is eyeing a third title, specifically featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.
He expressed his interest in making this fight happen as the two fighters have trade barbs in the past.
“There would only be one fight that would really bring me back, that would really wake me up in the morning. Other than Ryan Garcia, it would be Alexander Volkanovski, that overgrown midget,” Cejudo told TMZ (H/T to MMA Junkie). “I would love to make him bend the knee because he’s already half way there.”
“I want a third title because I want to be different,” Cejudo said. “There’s a lot of champ-champs – obviously there’s only one ‘Triple C.’ There’s only one Olympic champ, flyweight champ and bantamweight champion of the world, but it’s just to cement it, go in the history books as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.”
