Henry Cejudo is one of the best mixed martial artists that we have seen in recent years. While his prime atop the sport ended up seeming brief, everyone has nothing but respect for Cejudo’s achievements. He became a two-division champion in the UFC, was an Olympic Gold Medalist, and essentially saved the Flyweight division by knocking out T.J. Dillashaw, who was caught doping after the fight.
However, Cejudo retired earlier this year and vacated the Bantamweight Championship after a win over Dominick Cruz. Now it looks like ‘Triple C’ is keeping the after new name in the combat sports world.
Jake Paul has started to be looked at as more than an internet laughing stock with his fantastic KO win over Nate Robinson two weekends ago. Cejudo has been jawing at Paul, trying to instigate the boxer.
Cejudo has doubled down on his callouts and said that he will make Paul ‘bend the knee’. While it will be hard to get 5’4 Cejudo to face 6’1 Paul, it is smart marketing for both men to get people to buy into this.
The WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney has not held back on YouTubers making their way…
Henry Cejudo: Being a troll or actually looking for a super-fight?
It is well-known that size gives a fighter an advantage, but that advantage is by no means what determines a fight outcome. We have seen Frankie Edgar become a Lightweight champion while undersized. Daniel Cormier was a Heavyweight champion while under 6 feet tall. Ceujdo could try to take Paul on despite the size mismatch.
However, the odds of that happening are astronomical. Considering how Jake’s brother, Logan, is fighting Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout, Paul will be looking above Cejudo. Even though Cejudo is one of the top names in the world of MMA, Jake is eyeing the top name. That is obviously Conor McGregor.
Tgere are too many roadblocks for this fight. Our best guess is that Cejudo is chomping at someone with a lot of momentum on their side to just instigate the fans and get them excited.
