Cejudo took to social media to share his thoughts on who would be the perfect opponent for Yan. The revelation might shock you!!

He bought up Cruz as his choice as he had faced off against him during UFC 249 in May 2020, where he defeated him by a TKO. This was also his last appearance in the UFC before retiring.

He quoted, “I think Cruz has the best chance to beat up Yan. Do you know why? Because of his distance game and the fact that he wrestles. None of these guys wrestle. None of these guys have really forced Petr Yan to actually wrestle and the way Cruz mixes it, I’m not saying he could beat Yan but I’m saying he has the best chance of beating Petr ‘the ugly potato’ Yan, if that makes any sense. That’s actually a damn compliment to Dominick ‘the booze’ Cruz.”
