UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo has no limit to his cringe. He has called out literally everybody around him. Last month he called out UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, then called out boxing star Vasyl Lomachenko and now he has his eyes set on women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko.
This is what Cejudo had to say:

“So I’m out here enjoying my beautiful Sunday in beautiful Las Vegas, but my phone just keeps blowing up, that somebody by the name of Valentina ‘Bullet’ Shevchenko is the most dominant champion in the world. And guess what? I get a little jelly because you know what? She has gold, and I want that gold. Valentina Shevchenko, I have a message for you: I’m looking to become the first intergender world champion that this world has ever seen. I’m calling you out. You can be the next to bend the knee to ‘Triple C.’” Henry Cejudo said in clip he uploaded on Twitter.
It didn’t take long for Valentina to respond:
However, UFC president is totally bewildered by Cejudo’s callout and said that it is the whackiest thing he has ever seen in his life.
“That’s the wackiest shit I’ve ever heard,” White said. “It’s just (expletive) crazy that Henry would say that. But Valentina would probably do it. I don’t even know how to respond to that or what to say other than ‘wow.’”
“I can’t even (expletive) wrap my brain around that, why he would say that,” White said. ” It’s just crazy, but … what are you gonna do?”
