Ever since Henry Cejudo knocked out Marlos Moraes to become the UFC bantamweight champion, he has been on a roll, calling out the likes of Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz.
Although Cejudo has been off the training camp because of a surgery that he underwent back in June when he tore the subscapularis muscle in his shoulder in the first round of his fight against Marlon Moraes at UFC 238.
Yesterday Ali Abdelaziz, owner of Dominance MMA which manages some of the top fighters in the world arranged a media day where he had all his fighters come out and talk to the media. Cejudo who is also managed by Ali was present at the media day event, where he talked about his future fights.
He was asked as to which weight-class he will be defending his title. He said that the 135-pound division is more appealing to him because of Dominick Cruz. Although Dana White had earlier said that he wants Cejudo to defend his 125-pound title first.
“Eventually I do have to live a belt, it’s stressful having to hold two weight divisions. I don’t want that stress on me, So I am gonna have to choose [between fighting at 125lbs and 135lbs]”
“135 seems more appetizing to me to be honest, I don’t have to cut more weight, but there is a loss in my record against Joseph [Benavidez] so that changes things a little bit
“I will hurt him [Cruz] and that’s the reason why at 135, he is my No. 1 pick. He is a smart aleck, he is a smarty pant and I don’t really like that….You meet Dominick and he says a lot about every time he fights somebody, he talks about their character and to be it’s about being an entertainer……I don’t like Dominick, I want an easy fight, I want a tune-up fight……So Dominick Cruz, if you’re watching, you’re going to bend the knee” Henry Cejudo concluded.
Who do you guys think wins between Dominick Cruz and Henry Cejudo?
