Henry Cejudo is eyeing a return to the octagon and he's keen on a scrap with one man and one man only.
Sean O'Malley's name has been on Cejudo's lips for some time now, and with 'Suga' winning over the weekend it was only a matter of time before Cejudo called him out again.
Only this time, the former two-division champ took a below-the-belt shot when referring to his rival.
He tweeted: "Hey @danawhite since Denzel Sterling wants to work on his rap career (He can be called Lil Power) How about Me Vs Ronald MethDonald @SugaSeanMMA for a interim in Australia? I’m short so I’m used to being Down Under."

After retiring from MMA back in 2020, Cejudo is now eligible to compete again having completed his six months in the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency program.
Given the fact that he never technically lost the bantamweight belt, Cejudo has been very vocal in calling out almost every fighter under the sun.
That said, it's O'Malley who has received particular attention.
After the young American's No Contest against Pedro Munhoz earlier this year, Cejudo gatecrashed his backstage interview and began trash-talking.
“Hey, Sean, if you want a matchup, he’s right here – I’d love a tune up,” Cejudo yelled.
“What do you say, precious? I’m good to go. When would you want to bend the knee? At what time? Cause I think you absolutely suck.”
He was eventually ushered away, much to O'Malley's confusion.
I already knocked out a guy on PEDs, but I’ve never knocked out a guy on PEDs who also looks like a crackhead. Bend the knee bitch 🧎🏻💉 https://t.co/3uBtcDVySU— Henry Cejudo (@HenryCejudo) July 3, 2022
“That little fat-ass should stay retired,” O’Malley responded.
“He’s running around drunk in the backstage, [he] got escorted out. He was tripping over things. Running into things. Looks like he’s on drugs. Looks fat. I don’t know if he’s having a midlife crisis or what.”
He added: “He mumbled some words like [I was a tune-up fight]. Is that realistic? Does Henry come back? He looks fat as s**t. Does he want to fight in three years? I don’t know.”
