Henry Cejudo won the vacant UFC Bantamweight Championship against Marlon Moraes on June 8, 2019, at UFC 238 to become the double division champion. Later in December, he vacated the Flyweight title to focus on the Bantamweight division but it now seems like he wants the "champ-champ" title again- not with the flyweight title but by claiming the featherweight title.
The Olympic gold medalist recently sent a warning to featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski and revealed that he is targeting for the next title.
“Showing my girl the next belt I’m going to snatch! @alexvolkanovski I’m coming for your belt you overgrown midget! Quadruple C in the making! #bendtheknee #beltcollector #golddigger”
Cejudo captioned in a photo with his girlfriend where he can be seen pointing his finger at something.
Volkanovski instantly replied and wrote, "Now now @HenryCejudo, don’t go making empty promises on #ValentinesDay.”
Volkanovski hasn't fought anyone since defeating Max Holloway to claim the 145-pound title. The UFC President earlier made some hints about his desire to hold a rematch between Alex and Max.
Cejudo would make history if he were to ever capture the featherweight gold, assuming no current UFC fighter who has won titles in two weight classes goes for gold in a third division. No fighter has ever won titles in three weight classes under the UFC banner.
