UFC flyweight and bantamweight champ Henry Cejudo wants to take “The New Money Team” to the next level. UFC president Dana White would like for Cejudo to defend his flyweight title upon his return from injury. However, “Triple C” is looking for a money fight.
“Man, Conor McGregor’s all talk. He’s all bark, no bite,” Cejudo said. “He beat some good people 10 years ago. I don’t have a relationship with him at all. I want to fight Conor. I want to be rich, too.”
Cejudo has also poked at boxing’s lightweight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko, who he has messed with online before.
“He’s probably one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time. But when it comes down to combat sports, nobody in human history has been a world champion in two different sports, an Olympic gold medalist and hold two UFC belts. As good as Vasiliy Lomachenko is, I’m a two-sport Hall of Famer. You can’t beat it,” Cejudo said.
Finally, Cejudo detailed his intentions to fight UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, as he looks to be the first fighter in UFC history to win a title in three different weight classes.
“The eventual game plan is to maybe fight at featherweight in the future, when I’m ready,” Cejudo said. “Max Holloway’s so big, though. He’s so tall. I would have to see how Alexander Volkanovski fights him, to see if there’s any holes. Frankie Edgar already fought him. I need to see how these little guys fight him, to see what I can take from these fights.”
Do you think Cejudo will receive any of his desired money fights?
