Henry Cejudo’s 2019 has been a dominant one with a stoppage win over former UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and then winning the vacated title a few months later.
Now, Cejudo is threatening to walk away from the sport at the peak of his powers if he does not get paid what he’s worth.
“I’m in this game for 100-percent money,” Cejudo told MMA Fighting.
“I’m in this to make money, I’m not in this for another championship. I’ve accomplished everything I’ve wanted to accomplish. There’s only one thing missing: A whole bunch of zeroes behind me competing and entertaining a bunch of people. I want to fight the best but if the number doesn’t equal out to what I feel like I’m gonna get paid, then I’m out, they can keep both belts.”
