UFC Champion Henry Cejudo Calls Out Vasyl Lomachenko Who Brutally Responds On Social Media

Vasyl Lomachenko has brutally responded to Henry Cejudo calling him out.

Shortly after Artem Lobov defeated Paulie Malignaggi at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 6, Cejudo went onto Twitter and issued a message to Lomachenko.

"Artem Lobov (13-15,MMA) former UFC fighter wins by unanimous victory over Paulie Malagnaggi (36-8, ,Boxing) former World Champion. What do you think an Olympic & #UFC champ Champ would do to #boxing's @VasylLomachenko," he wrote accompanied with a picture of himself and the pound-for-pound boxing king.

Lomachenko fired back by posting a GIF of Anthony Crolla, who was viciously knocked out by the Ukrainian phenom.

Cejudo continued to tease a bout by referencing Lomachenko's sole professional defeat.

"[email protected] we all know what happened the last time you fought a Mexican warrior. Whose hand got raised again?"

The current WBA (super) and WBO lightweight world champion hit back once again.

He uploaded another GIF attached with the following words: "You don't understand anything in boxing."

A fight between the two fighters is extremely unlikely especially considering the UFC champ-champ is sidelined through injury.

Realistically, Lomachenko isn't going to entertain Cejudo's offer but he does fancy a fight against Conor McGregor, who fought Floyd Mayweather in 2017.

"No, I don't think [he's a good boxer]," he said about McGregor's stand-up.

"He might be a good boxer in an amateur career, amateur boxing. Three rounds, three-minute rounds, one minute rest, maybe he is good. But in professional boxing? No.

"I can beat him in a boxing ring easy," Lomachenko added. "I enjoy this fight. I will go school this guy.

"With him? Yeah, no problem," he said when asked if he'd go to 145 lbs to face the Irishman.

Meanwhile, Lomachenko is set to return to action on August 31 when he takes on Luke Campbell.
