It hasn’t even been two days since Henry Cejudo made his return to the Octagon, and the former double champ has found himself feuding with another ex-double champ- Conor McGregor.
“Triple C” made his comeback to MMA in the main event of UFC 288 last weekend, taking on the reigning Bantamweight champ Aljamain Sterling. After failing to regain his former belt from “Funkmaster” via a split decision loss, Cejudo was called out on Twitter by “The Notorious” regarding his comeback performance.
“Easiest money I’ve ever made. Not a scratch on Aljo! Congrats Funkmaster! Good little fighter is Henry but give it a rest with these agendas all the time. The guy is sub 20 fights in his career. His little feints an all ahaha omg please teach me mastermind lol. Done the splits like a stripper and got dumped on his ass he did hahaha oh lord it’s tasty.” – read the tweet from McGregor which he later deleted.
On top of that, McGregor made another video of his criticism of Cejudo’s performance, courtesy of XcellentMMA.

“Alright here we go. Coach MacDaddy in the place. Congrats ‘Funkmaster’, great fight! I knew you were going to win that my man, easiest money I’ve ever made. I already went shopping in advance. Got everything Gucci’d out. You know yourself; fresh gear. Let me just put this down and show you what’s up. Coach MacDaddy in the place. Ok Henry, this one is for you my man. Some of the things. Oh my god. You blew my f**… I couldn’t believe what I was seeing right. So, you were he like this right.” McGregor said in the clip while standing in a southpaw stance.
“And you were doing this (McGregor lifts up his knee). You were doing this little thing and I was like what is that man? I’ve never seen that. This guy’s a f**king genius, yeah? So you were doing where you went yeah (lifts knee again and then switches stances), if you’d have just done it this way. Man, you would have f**king cleaned shop bro. You would have took him to the cleaners my man. I’m Coach MacDaddy and I don’t charge a fee cuz I’m already set, yeah,” the Irishman added. [H/T BJPenn.com]
For his part, Cejudo responded to McGregor, taking simultaneous jabs at his grappling skills, as well as him not submitting a urine sample.
“Hey Conor McGregor, your grappling is so you bad you can’t even submit a clean urine sample. I’ve seen more intimidating men on a can of Bud Light,” Cejudo responded.

However at the end, Cejudo thanked McGregor for the jibes, and the latter, in return, asked him to “dust off” and return.
“Haha my please! Good fight. Dust it off and come back. God bless” – McGregor responded.
Haha my pleasure! Good fight! Dust it off and come back. God bless 🙏
