UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo will likely defend his title against former featherweight champion Jose Aldo. UFC is targeting this match-up for UFC 250, which will take place in Sao Paulo on March 9.

Henry Cejudo was been calling out Aldo for quite some time now. The pair have also occasionally engaged in trash talks on social media. Now the Brazilian star has taken a dig at Henry Cejudo calling him an ‘angry child’.

Henry Cejudo and Jose Aldo

Here’s what Jose Aldo posted on social media.

Now, the family is complete. Dad, mom and our child. I think he’s angry! @danawhite @HenryCejudo,” Aldo tweeted.

Henry Cejudo has had an extremely fruitful 2019. He knocked out TJ Dillashaw in just 32 seconds at the inaugural UFC on ESPN+ card in January last year and then knocked out Marlon Moraes in the third round at UFC 238 to become the new bantamweight champion.

He became the first UFC fighter to subsequently hold titles at flyweight and the bantamweight division in the UFC. Before that, he defeated then reigning pound-for-pound star Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 via split decision.

On the other hand, Jose Aldo made his bantamweight debut at UFC 245 last year against Marlon Moraes. He lost the fight by a close decision. Despite his loss to Moraes, the former champion showed that he has the skills to compete at bantamweight.

Petr Yan criticises Henry Cejudo for not wanting to fight him

While Aldo is without a doubt a legend in the sport, he hardly deserves a title shot coming off of a loss. Fighters like Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling have repeatedly asked UFC to give them a title shot.

Petr Yan is coming off of an incredible knockout win over Urijah Faber at UFC 245. He has fought six times in the UFC and has been undefeated so far inside the organisation.

“I lost all respect for Cejudo. He doesn’t want to defend his belt against a real number one contender,” Petr Yan said to BJPENN.com in an interview last month. “He wants to fight someone with zero wins in 135 division and on a two-fight losing streak, and far from the peak of his career. UFC shouldn’t support this behaviour if they want to keep any significance to that belt. Honestly, it will be bad for the sport.”

He is a triple clown who is trying to turn our sport into a circus. He knows I’m a terrible matchup for him,” he explained. “That’s why he is trying to avoid fighting me.”

Who do you guys think wins in a fight between Henry Cejudo and TJ Dillashaw?
