Henry Cejudo Inspired To Make His Way Back To The Octagon
Henry Cejudo (16-2-0) has made his intentions clear about his future plans.
According to his manager, Ali Abdelaziz of Dominance MMA, the American will return to the USADA drug-testing pool Monday. That increases the chances of the former Olympic gold medalist to be returning to the ring after two years.
This development comes after the two UFC title fights on Saturday, which seemed to have interested Cejudo. In those fights, Alexander Volkanovski successfully defended his UFC featherweight title against “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung-Jung.
In the second fight, Aljamain Sterling beat Petr Yan to be successful in unifying the bantamweight title at UFC 273 in Florida. After these fights, Cejudo tweeted that he is returning to the ring.
Now, these rumors are official.
“Henry is totally committed to his fighting and training. He had never stopped training anyway. If things go according to the plan, I believe he can win the bantamweight title, go up to 145 and win that,” Ali Abdelaziz stated.
Cejudo had announced a shocking retirement in May 2020 after defeating Dominick Cruz to win the bantamweight title at UF 249.
