Henry Cejudo is ending retirement to fight Aljamain Sterling at UFC 288 for the Bantamweight championship. Cejudo has been active in the MMA community with his coverage of the sport on his Youtube Channel. However, Cejudo brought Daniel “DC” Cormier on his Youtube Channel to discuss a huge issue regarding his rivalry with Jon Jones.
Henry Cejuod wrote on Twitter, “I’ve been wanting to chat with @dc_mma about his feud with Jon Jones for years.. No matter what they’ve been through, legends take care of legends. Even if now isn’t the time, the day will come.” Henry Cejudo thinks it is time for the fierce rivals to mend the fences. He said to DC on his Youtube channel, “Let’s bury the hatchet.”
Henry Cejudo and Daniel Cormier are good friends. They know each other from their time at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where both competed. Cejudo won the gold medal, but DC could not secure a medal himself. Recently, he coached Jon Jones for his return from the hiatus to compete in the Heavyweight division. Cejudo has a great relationship with DC and Jones and wishes them to put their rivalry aside to form a friendship.

He wrote, “I’m not returning for the money. I’m not even returning for my daughter. I’m returning to make history.” Cejudo will look to make history after being away from the Octagon for three years.
On the other hand, Aljamain Sterling will look to stop the gold medal winner and extend his run as the King of the Bantamweights. Sterling recently defeated T J Dillashaw at UFC 280 for his second title defence. Fight fans will find out who will win the title fight in May.
