Could 2021 see the return of ‘Triple C’?

While no official announcement has been made, Henry Cejudo continues to stoke the fires of a possible comeback by targeting just about everyone on the UFC roster.

After calling out Petr Yan and Alexander Volkanovski, ‘The Messenger’ recently turned his attention towards reigning flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo, who retained his title at UFC 256 after a five-round slugfest with Brandon Moreno that ended in a draw.

While some fans believe Figueiredo vs. Moreno was 2020’s Fight of the Year, Cejudo claimed the fight ‘sucked’ and said he would easily dispose of ‘Deus Da Guerra’ in under a minute.

“I see you are an expert on blowing because your last fight sucked. And this is your fighter of the year @danawhite? I’d knock is ass out in 1 and that is 1 minute! #rentachamp @Daico_Deiveson,” Cejudo wrote, tagging both Dana White and Figueiredo.

Cejudo is the former UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion and, prior to his retirement in 2019, was considered one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. The Olympic gold medalist retired following TKO win over Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 but still calls out various fighters on social media, hinting that he might not be done with MMA just yet.
