Former UFC Double champion Henry Cejudo has been in the news lately for expressing his interest in fighting UFC Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski in a short-notice title fight.
This interest from Cejudo, however, was met with a negative response from UFC President Dana White which then resulted in a to-and-fro social media battle between Dana and Cejudo. One of the tweets from Cejudo even referenced Conor McGregor which forced the Irishman to enter the conversation.
And now, Cejudo’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has called for a match between Henry Cejudo and Conor McGregor. Ali tweeted about the same while quoting a tweet from Cejudo.
“@TheNotoriousMMA vs @HenryCejudo king vs Chicken heart,” Ali Tweeted.
He further went on to elaborate on the same and sent out another tweet in which he mentioned that Cejudo ‘can kill’ McGregor if a match happens.
“Henry can kill this guy.” He tweeted while quoting a tweet that asked Cejudo to fight McGregor.
Cejudo last fought in the UFC back in May 2020 when he defeated former UFC Bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz, via a second-round TKO. Prior to this, he was on an impressive five-fight winning streak which saw him capture the Flyweight title and the Bantamweight title. Cejudo also secured wins over Demetrious Johnson, TJ Dillashaw, and Marlon Moraes during this spell.
McGregor, on the other hand, is now on a two-fight losing streak having lost twice to Dustin Poirier. He has only won one fight since 2018 with the win coming against Donald Cerrone.
