‘Triple C’ want’s to become a triple-weight champion.

That’s right, former UFC two-division champ and Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo is eyeing not one, not two, but three title fights upon his return, hinting at a UFC comeback after previously retiring in 2020.

‘The Messenger’ called out Deiveson Figueiredo, Aljamain Sterling, and Alexander Volkanovski on social media earlier this week, promising to beat all three champions and ‘make America great again’.

“Hey @danawhite so you have a walking pez dispenser champ at 125lbs @daico_deusdaguerra a paper champion and Oscar winner @funkmastermma and a wanna be Crocodile Hunter @alexvolkanovski. I’m feeling generous and here to help you make America great again,” Cejudo posted on Twitter.

Cejudo retired following his TKO victory against Dominick Cruz at UFC 249, vacating the bantamweight title in what many fans considered to be a negotiation ploy. The 34-year-old went on an epic run at flyweight and bantamweight and is widely considered one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters of all time, notching wins over Demetrious Johnson, T.J. Dillashaw, Marlon Moraes, and Cruz.
