Henry Cejudo says Merab Dvalishvili would be ‘Easy Money’ for him

Despite Merab Dvalishvili‘s convincing victory over Petr Yan at UFC Fight Night 221, Henry Cejudo wasn’t particularly thrilled.

This past Saturday at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Dvalishvili (16-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) attempted a UFC record 49 takedowns en way to a decisive unanimous decision victory. Cejudo promises that Dvalishvili won’t use this kind of success against him, despite the fact that he foresaw that result.

On May 6, Cejudo (16-2 MMA, 10-2 UFC) will face bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling, a training partner of Dvalishvili. He views Sterling as a tougher opponent.

For my fight with Sterling, I have a feeling he’s gonna fight the way he fought Pedro Munhoz. I’m expecting that,” Henry Cejudo said on his YouTube channel. “Real high pace, real volume, a lot of movement, a lot of lateral stuff, but he could also come in and just wing.

“These guys are the same fighters all the time. Aljamain, he just flows with his fighting, he’s a freestyler. This guy (Dvalishvili), you know he’s gonna press, you know he’s gonna do all this to shoot. This is why a guy like Merab would be easy money. I’d hurt that dude. I’d let him in on my legs, make him carry my weight, and then take him down.”

Henry Cejudo wants Merab as a backup to Aljamain Sterling

Henry Cejudo believes that he may face Dvalishvili sooner than he had anticipated. Sterling won’t make it to their bout, according to “Triple C,” who wants Dvalishvili to serve as a backup.

Dear Dana White, I’m over here watching the No. 2 and No. 3 contenders, and I’ve got a feeling that (Aljamain) is more likely to back out of this fight,” Henry Cejudo said on Twitter. “So that being said, why don’t you give me Merab? Give me Merab since Sean O’Malley wants to wait. He wants to take his time. Why we don’t make Merab the backup at UFC 288. Why don’t we do it that way?

That way it’s both of these training partners, because I have a feeling Aljamain is going to eventually back out, but I want to make sure. It’s going to be the same game plan from both of these chumps: wrestle, strike, every time they throw something heavy, they go in for takedowns. Anyway, Dana White, if you’re listening to me, let’s have Merab as a backup, Newark, N.J., UFC 288, because I want both of them. If I can fight both of them the same night, they can both get it.”
