Henry Cejudo wants to see the supermatch between Kamaru Usman and Israel Adesanya
Cejudo talks in his show about Usman‘s greatness as the UFC welterweight champion and then proceeds for the super-fight proposal. “When you’re able to go up next 10-15 pounds and defeat your opponents[s] [there], I mean that’s something to be said [about],” affirms Cejudo who won his double belts at UFC’s flyweight and bantamweight division.
“You already lapped the division Kamaru Usman, you already beat Colby twice, you already beat Masvidal too… you’re gonna beat Edwards again. There’s only one take from my side and that’s saying go up and fight your African brother because you know what this is about legacy,” Cejudo said with emphasis.
He added, “I am sure if it’s the African pride I kind of get that but I don’t get that. Actually as a matter of fact I really don’t get that because to me it’s all about legacy and you know somebody else in the future is going to be on the same run as Kamaru Usman did, but the difference is can you win a second belt, can you fend that second belt and that’s what I want for the Nigerian Nightmare, I want him to go up and fight Izzy because he has the perfect style to beat somebody like Izzy because he has wrestling Schmo!”
