Valentina Shevchenko Fires Back At Henry Cejudo, He Responds Immediately

Valentina Shevchenko Fires Back At Henry Cejudo, He Responds Immediately

Valentina Shevchenko has fired back at Henry Cejudo who bizarrely called her out for a UFC intergender bout.

Cejudo, who's the UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion, took to social media to issue a challenge to Shevchenko following her dominant title defence against Liz Carmouche at UFC Uruguay.

The UFC women's flyweight champion has now responded to his call-out.

She posted a picture of herself holding a gun accompanied with the words: "Looking for Henry Cejudo."

The Kyrgyzstan phenom then shared another post.

Cejudo hit back: "I'll be there right after I finish polishing my gold medal and belts," he said before posting another tweet directed at her.

Cejudo threw down the gauntlet to Shevchenko with a video message on Monday.

"So, I am out here enjoying my beautiful Sunday here in beautiful Las Vegas," he said, addressing the camera.

"But my phone just keeps blowing up that somebody by the name of Valentina 'The Bullet' Shevchenko is the most dominant champion in the world. And guess what? I get a little jelly, because you know what she has gold and I want that gold!

"Valentina Shevchenko, I have a message for you. I am looking to become the first intergender world champion that this world has ever seen. I'm calling you out. You can be the next to bend the knee to 'Triple C'."

The UFC double champion appears to be calling out Shevchenko to drum up attention with the fighter ruled out for the rest of 2019.

He underwent shoulder surgery after bagging the UFC bantamweight title in June.

Bookmakers, though, have released odds for the extremely hypothetical match, pricing Cejudo as an 11-1 favorite over Shevchenko.

A UFC fight between a man and woman won't ever happen so expect Cejudo to potentially face returning veteran Urijah Faber, who won his comeback fight, or Russian standout Petr Yan next.
