- Henry Cejudo gets brutally honest about his take on Conor McGregor’s physique and a potential fight with Canelo Alvarez
- “Triple C” warned “Notorious” not to be overconfident in his UFC return
Henry Cejudo shared his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s future and the Irish MMA superstar’s seemingly too-bulky physique. For “Triple C,” McGregor is in a position where he could call out anybody, even as big as Canelo Alvarez but when it comes right down to it, he wouldn’t stand a chance against the Mexican boxing superstar.
Conor May have been on Something
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Cejudo seriously touched on the subject, why is McGregor looking oddly huge? Cejudo then suggested that whatever it is that “Notorious” has been taking, there will always be pros and cons in his body.
“There’s something crazy different about his face. Notice his jawline you know he’s probably, he’s just a little too bulky and you start to kind of come into conclusion, ‘What is it that he’s actually taking and if it’s actually healthy for him?’ Because remember guys you can get big and stronger… but there are pros, there’s also cons,” Cejudo explained.
Canelo is Different from Floyd
Just recently, McGregor provided an update about his much-awaited TUF 31 Season Finale showdown with Michael Chandler. At the same time, he also said he has “no problem” facing Canelo in a boxing match as he has been studying the multi-division boxing champ’s latest fights.
According to Cejudo, Canelo will be interested in McGregor simply because it’s an easy payday for him. Instead, it’s “Notorious” who should be thinking about it because Alvarez is way more powerful than Floyd Mayweather.
“I guarantee you right now, Canelo will be all about it [fighting McGregor] because you know why? Because it’s easy money for him and you go up against a guy like Canelo, Canelo’s gonna stop you in the first or second round like he’s an approval lesson,” Cejudo assessed. “He’s gonna make an example of you for the simple fact that Floyd is just a little more business oriented and Floyd doesn’t have the power that Canelo has and those are questions that Conor McGregor have to answer.”
Like Cejudo, McGregor will be making his UFC return after a long layoff. Cejudo added that he doubts “Notorious” will be able to bring back his old self once he steps inside the Octagon.
“It’s not so much ring rust, it’s more of you forget a little of that in experience of being in there in the actual fighting with no pads [or] with any of that, you know and Conor does have to kind of come back and really rejuvenate that and understand that because it’s not just the ring rust, it’s gonna be if you really understand the experience of the actual game,” he concluded.
Cejudo has been jabbing at McGregor since his fellow former UFC two-division champ’s roasted him over his title fight loss to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 288.
