Retired UFC Star Begs Dana White To Set Up Huge Title Fight For Him To Return

Former UFC double champion Henry Cejudo has begged Dana White to set up a historic championship clash against UFC featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski.


Cejudo is eyeing a sensational comeback after walking away from the UFC following his victory over Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in April.

He wants a crack at 145lbs champion Volkanovski after the Australian fighter controversially beat Max Holloway at UFC 251.

Cejudo called for a showdown against Volkanovski on social media after trolling new UFC bantamweight champion Petr Yan.

On Twitter, he wrote: "How cute the 'rent a champ' is calling me out! Why don't you take out that dirt Q-tip @SugaSeanMMA that's easy money. But please @danawhite give me that overgrown midget @alexvolkanovski I'll make him bend the knee!"

Cejudo also tweeted during Volkanovski vs. Holloway II.

"I want the winner of this fight!" He wrote.

In another tweet, he added: "Give me the winner"

He continued: "You over grown midget! You stole that one. I'll make sure to stop you you thief."

Then UFC flyweight champion Cejudo joined an elite group when he beat Marlon Moraes to claim the vacant UFC bantamweight title in June 2019.

He's hoping to land a UFC featherweight title shot and a chance at making history by becoming the first three-weight UFC champion.
