Even though former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo lost his bantamweight debut yesterday at UFC 245 against Marlon Moraes, the current UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo is still adamant about fighting him.
Henry Cejudo took to social media and called himself the ‘King of Rio’ and said that he wants to fight the Brazilian legend in his hometown.

“It feels good to have good hair. So upon my return, I really did want to fight Dominick Cruz. But, I thought about and he is too brittle. If I was to tell Dominick Cruz to bend the knee he’d pop his damn neck out. But, actually, I’m not here to talk about Dominick. I’m here to talk about Jose Waldo and I want to give him a clap for his last performance because a lot of people thought he won. I want to congratulate him because he is apart of the Henry Cejudo sweepstakes but it is under my terms. I want to fight him in my city. Rio de Janeiro. Daddy’s coming home. Dana White let’s sign that contract. Ahh, and one last thing, your movie sucks,” Cejudo said.
Before Jose Aldo’s fight at UFC 245, Henry Cejudo had already predicted that he didn’t see Jose Aldo winning his fight against Moraes as the weight cut could prove brutal for him.
“Aldo will lose a lot of weight, this is a problem he will have. I think Marlon will knock him out. Marlon is a very strong guy at 61kg [135 pounds], very dangerous,” he explained. “Aldo will drop a lot of weight, and it will hurt him. I think Marlon will knock out José Aldo in the first or second round. Marlon is a different kind of animal.”
Are you guys interested in seeing Jose Aldo fight Henry Cejudo? Who do you see winning this?
