Henry Cejudo And Urijah Faber Share Back And Forth Exchange
Urijah Faber had quite the successful return to the UFC on Saturday night. Now, he is looking for a fight with Champ-Champ, Henry Cejudo.
Faber had retired from MMA, in 2016. However, like almost every MMA “retirement,” Faber was quick to return, coming back last night. It did seem that he was always primed for a comeback, never leaving the USADA pool. Subsequently, Faber finished Ricky Simon, early in the first round, at UFC Sacramento to make that return a statement.
Following this massive victory, Faber was quick to call for a fight with the Flyweight and Bantamweight champ-champ, Henry Cejudo. Faber spoke in his post-fight interview about wanting this fight.
It’s funny, I think Henry Cejudo called me out a little bit ago, And then I heard Dana said I was old. I know Dana White was old when he was 40, but i’m a young man. Dana was old when he was 28. Come on, Dana. Look at me!
Henry, I remember 10 years ago when you challenged me to a fight as a friendly gesture, and I’m down to get in there and mix it up. There’s only one reason I do this and it’s to test myself against the best in the world … It’s a hairy situation out there, I gotta get in there now before it’s too late.”
Cejudo took to Twitter quickly, to respond to this callout from Faber.
Careful what you wish for my corn-rolled princess. You could be the next legend to bend the knee to Triple C. https://t.co/j5NcVrEoqz

“Careful what you wish for my corn-rolled princess. You could be the next legend to bend the knee to Triple C.”
Urijah Faber fought in a title bid against Dominic Cruz, in his last fight before retirement. Could a fight with Henry Cejudo be next on the cards? Or would a grudge match with former teammate TJ Dillashaw be better?
