Alexander Volkanovski will not be battling Henry Cejudo upcoming time out, in accordance to the featherweight champ.
At any time considering that Volkanovski defended his belt from Max Holloway at UFC 251, Cejudo has been calling for the superfight. He wants to come to be C4 and be the initial person to ever acquire belts in three different fat lessons.
Nonetheless, according to Volkanovski, the featherweight champ claims he has never ever been available that battle.
“It’s amusing, I have a giggle about it, but I don’t know how people today are taking it, if they genuinely believe that I’m not signing some contract that supposedly I’m meant to sign. No just one has talked to me about this at all, apart from Cejudo,” Volkanovski claimed to MMAJunkie. “I just preserve seeing him begging, absolutely begging Dana White to give him a shot.
“It’s the cringe, what are you heading to do? If it was likely to at any time occur, it experienced to be ahead of,” he continued. “Now, appear at the division. We bought all these guys that are battling for the No. 1 contender (location).
“For me to consider a struggle later on this 12 months with Cejudo, it just does not make sense. All over again, I want the No. 1 contenders, but if the UFC just definitely did push that on me, alright wonderful,” Volkanovski concluded. “I’ll whoop his ass then I can just take on a No. 1 contender. But again, that is not me. I want to be the style of champion that will take on No. 1 contenders.”
Alexander Volkanovski vs. Henry Cejudo would be a big struggle. The featherweight division, on the other hand, has some top contenders like Korean Zombie, Brian Ortega, Calvin Kattar, Yair Rodriguez, and Zabit Magomedsharipov who deserve the shot much more than Cejudo.
So, for now, it appears that struggle won’t be taking place.
