Cejudo wasted no time in calling out for a fight against the main event winner which later happened to be Dillashaw for the UFC bantamweight title. However that’s not enough for the 2008 Beijing Olympics freestyle gold medalist. Cejudo told reporters at the post-fight press conference that his goal is to become a ‘triple champ’.

“If you guys watch my fight look at how muscular, how much bigger I am than Demetrious Johnson,” Cejudo said.  “I’m a tank, man. I can easily fill out at 135 pounds and feel good.

“The other reason, too, they’ve always talked about TJ and DJ superfight. They neglected Henry Cejudo in the promos. They neglected Henry Cejudo in practically everything. And I get it because America is all about winners. Now that I’m a winner, I’m asking. I’m an Olympic champ. I’m a UFC champ. And now I’m asking to be a triple champ.”
