Henry Cejudo and Cody Garbrandt are at it again.
After a brief back-and-forth on Twitter earlier this week, ‘No Chin’ and ‘Triple Coward’ are back on social media for round two — and this time, Raphael Assuncao has been caught up in the drama through no fault of his own.
“Triple C stands For Triple Coward you chose a guy who hasn’t fought in over 4 years @HenryCejudo come on @ufc!! side note Rafael I’ll see you before the summer is up...” Garbrandt posted on Tuesday evening, referencing Cejudo’s proposed bantamweight title defense against Dominick Cruz, who hasn’t fought in over three years.
