Dominick Cruz is persuaded that we’ve all viewed the very last of Henry Cejudo inside of the UFC Octagon.
At UFC 249, Henry Cejudo turned the initially guy to defeat Dominick Cruz through KO/TKO and then produced the surprise conclusion to journey off into the sunset and retire at the age of 33. Cejudo has not absolutely disappeared from the MMA scene, while, as he has continued to keep on being active on social media and share his insight on the happenings in the UFC. The former double winner has also teased a comeback regularly, specifically in his call-outs of featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.
It appears neither the UFC nor Volkanovski is now intrigued in this struggle, nevertheless. So if Cejudo is keeping out for a tremendous-deal or for Dana White and the UFC to go out of their way to accommodate him, Dominick Cruz believes that would make certain he will go down as the closing opponent in Cejudo’s job.
“I never think [he comes back],” Cruz mentioned in a Wednesday ESPN job interview when questioned about a likely Cejudo return. “He has this point where by he thinks that he’s worthy of millions and millions of dollars, and I imagine that Dana doesn’t care. So in all probability not, for the reason that he would like a selected sum of income right before he’ll occur again and combat, and I never know if he’ll ever get that.”
Dominick Cruz Considers Cejudo The Joke of Bantamweight Division
The bantamweight division hasn’t skipped a beat given that Cejudo’s retirement. A new champion was immediately crammed when Petr Yan defeated Jose Aldo for the vacant championship at UFC 251, and Aljamain Sterling was able to solidify himself as the #1 contender in the division to set up a showdown amongst the two up coming weekend. And remaining a person of the deepest divisions in the UFC, Dominick Cruz believes that for all of Cejudo’s antics and theatrics, the joke is on him if he thinks everyone is missing him.
“You seem at the rest of the division, Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling, two contenders that are combating for the belt coming up, those people fellas are not inquiring for a ton of money, and they are going to bring a nuts fight to the desk,” Cruz mentioned. “Why would you bring back again Cejudo, who’s taking part in it harmless on the sidelines? For what?
“He does not bring any more views. If you’re a Conor McGregor, if you’re a Ronda Rousey, yes, you’d determine it out. But if you’re Henry Cejudo? He doesn’t bring some type of awe aspect to these fights to where by all people cannot wait around to tune in to check out. They are just kind of laughing at him. He’s cringey.”
Dominick Cruz is set to confront Casey Kenney at UFC 259 future Saturday alongside the bantamweight title combat combatants Petr Yan and Aljamain Sterling.
