Henry Cejudo, the king of cringe has come up with another weird social media skit. The two-division UFC champ is sticking to character, calling out a long time bantamweight champion in Dominick Cruz in a video that has belts, diapers, and more random weirdness.

I’ve stopped trying to make sense of any of Cejudo’s “comedy” and social media postings as of late, but on this clip, he called Cruz a “tune up fight.”

“Daddy has been having really tough fights lately,” Cejudo told his UFC belts that had diapers on them. “This last year and a half, he’s fought Demetrious Johnson, the greatest of all time, beat him, T.J. Dillashaw, the greatest bantamweight of all time beat him, and also beat the killer in Marlon Moraes.

“Daddy wants an easy fight, kids. I want somebody that I could break. I want somebody that’s brittle. I want somebody easy... How bout a tune up fight? Dominick Cruz, I have a message for you. I don’t know how you can say you’re the best in the world, when you’re not even the best in the state of Arizona?!

“Dominick Cruz, you can do me a favor, and you can bend the knee to Triple C too. One last thing, wash your filthy dog.”

Cruz, like many times throughout his career, has been sidelined by injury again and hasn’t fought since losing his belt to Cody Garbrandt in 2016. Since that fight, the former WEC and UFC champion has pulled out of two more bouts due to a broken arm and an injured shoulder.

Cruz is not from Arizona.
