Cejudo: “There is one fight I’d really like to come back to!”

Henry Cejudo retired after UFC 249 and a win over Dominic Cruz, but is quite vocal in terms of potential encounters that would put him back in action.

The former two-time champion recently invited young boxing star Ryan Garcia to a fight, and now he has turned to an MMA challenge. Namely, ‘Triple C’ revealed that at the moment there is only one UFC fighter for whom he would return to the Octagon.

This is Alexander Volkanovski, the champion from the featherweight category, who should have a rematch with Max Holloway in his next performance.

“I’ve achieved everything in MMA and I’m very happy with my career. But there’s one fight I’d really like to come back to. It would be a match with Alexander Volkanovsky. I want a third title because I want to be different from the others. I want to be in history books enroll as the greatest MMA fighter of all time, ā€¯Cejudo revealed in an interview with TMZ.

If Cejudo’s wish comes true, he will not have an easy task in front of him. Namely, Volkanovski was defeated only once in his professional career (21-1) back in 2013, when he was still a new face on the MMA scene. The champion from Australia was last in action in December 2019, when he took the title of the then champion Holloway at the UFC 245 event.
