The UFC president has weighed in on the recent feud stemming between UFC champs Valentina Shevchenko and Henry Cejudo, labelling it as “f-cking crazy.”

Cejudo began the back and forth when he posted a bizarre video on Twitter following Shevchenko’s title defense against Liz Carmouche at UFC Santiago. “The Messenger” said that he was ‘jelly’ of Shevchenko being labelled as “one of the UFC’s most dominant champions” and proceeded to call her out so he could be “the first intergender world champion.”

Talking after the Contender Series on Tuesday (credit to MMA Weekly), White discussed the “crazy” feud between Shevchenko and Cejudo.

“That’s the wackiest sh-t I’ve ever heard in my life,” White said. “It’s just f-cking crazy that he would even say that. But Valentina would probably do it. I don’t even know how to respond to that or what to say other than ‘Wow.’” (Transcription via MMA Fighting)

White was then asked to predict who would win if the two did ever fight in the octagon, to which the UFC president struggled to answer.

“F-ck, I don’t know,” White said. “I can’t even f-cking wrap my brain around that, why he would say that. It’s just crazy, but what are you gonna do?”
