Former UFC Champion Henry Cejudo Wants To Fight Jake Paul

Henry Cejudo is the latest fighter to throw his name in the Jake Paul sweepstakes.

Paul is a popular YouTube personality. He has over 20 million YouTube subscribers and is dabbling in the world of boxing. Paul is coming off a second-round knockout victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson in the co-main event of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. card.

Cejudo, who is a former UFC Bantamweight and Flyweight Champion, hopped on his Twitter account to issue a challenge to Paul.

“Yo Jake Paul since you really think you’re a legit fighter by beating up on retired NBA D lister’s who really deserves an academy award for best fall. How about we fight and if I can’t stop you I’ll give all money to a charity of your choice.”

There is something to be said for the market of high-profile exhibition bouts. Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. turned in roughly 1.2 million pay-per-view buys. Floyd Mayweather recently announced an exhibition clash with Jake’s brother, Logan.

Cejudo hasn’t competed since May 9, 2020. “Triple C” defeated Dominick Cruz via second-round TKO to retain the UFC Bantamweight Championship. After the fight, Cejudo announced his retirement from pro MMA competition.

Despite the retirement announcement, Cejudo hasn’t been shy in taking aim at the likes of Deiveson Figueiredo, Petr Yan, Aljamain Sterling, Alex Volkanovski, and Conor McGregor to name a few. “Triple C” has said he’d consider making a return for the right fight and a high payday.
