Aljamain Sterling and Jose Aldo have been summoned to bend the knee to ‘Triple C’.
Speaking to MMA Junkie in a recent interview, reigning UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo told Aljamain ‘Curling’ that he isn’t worthy of fighting for UFC gold.
“Aljamain Curling? Make him curl again? The only reason I don’t want to fight Aljamain Sterling is because ‘Triple C,’ he doesn’t mess with sterling silver,” Cejudo said. “It’s all gold for me. So Aljamain Sterling if you’re watching this, you can do me a favor and you can bend the knee to ‘Triple C,’ too.”

Cejudo then shifted his attention towards former featherweight and pound-for-pound king Jose Aldo, who is rumored to be making a drop to the bantamweight division. ‘The Messenger’s’ message to ‘Scarface’? He can bend the knee, too.
“Jose Aldo can drop down all he wants,” Cejudo said. He’s going to bend the knee to ‘Triple C,’ too. I’m on a legend rampage. I’m a GOAT killer. I’m a PED killer. I’m the greatest of all time. Nobody in the UFC has my credentials. I should start being respected for it.”
Cejudo is currently nursing a shoulder injury but is expected to return to the Octagon in the new year.
