Seems like former 2-division UFC champion and Olympic champion Henry Cejudo has moved on from not being granted his wish to fight Alexander Volkanovski for the featherweight title and is rather happy staying retired, however keeping his gimmick of acting a cringe guy intact. Now Cejudo likes to do callouts just for fun, even if it means calling out internet stars like the current sensation, Hasbulla Magomedov.
Cejudo last fought in April 2020 when he defeated Dominick Cruz via knockout and then proceeded to announce his retirement. Now, Cejudo wanted to come back, only to make history and become the first three-division UFC champion when he decided to challenge Alexander Volkanovski since last year up to this date, but looking at his retired status, the UFC overlooked his wish which infuriated Cejudo for a while and he, therefore, also promised to not to fight in the UFC ever “for peanuts“ or low wages.
Henry Cejudo sings a lullaby to Hasbulla Magomedov’s model, calls the latter out as “King of Crib”
In a recent Tweet, Cejudo uploaded a video in which he was singing a lullaby to a pillow model of Hasbulla Magomedov, an internet sensation from Russia who grew famous only in the middle of the pandemic. Besides that, in Henry’s room, it was seen he has a number of other pillow models such as that of Volkanovski and UFC President Dana White, the one who recklessly sidelined the idea of Cejudo fighting Volkanovski.
In the caption of the video, Cejudo wrote “Hasbulla it’s me Shaq…you are taking everything I worked for…quit biting people’s ankles and let’s do this…it’s 3C vs 3 ft2…its the king of cringe vs the king of crib…let’s fight for the cocomelon championship….When I beat you I’ll be ccc and a half @danawhite“
What do you make of Cejudo’s hilarious attempt to call out Magomedov for a “Coco Melon Championship”? On a serious note, would you like to see Cejudo come back inside the octagon to make history? Like him because of his talent or not because of his cringe character, Cejudo is definitely solidified in the UFC history, as one of the most memorable figures of this sport. Where do you put Cejudo amongst the all-time greats in MMA history?
