Henry Cejudo has been reported to have submitted two samples to USADA.
Having remained out of action for over two years, Cejudo has been hinting at returning to competition ever since retiring. The former two-division UFC champion announced that he would be hanging up the gloves after his most recent outing against Dominick Cruz in May 2020.
Henry Cejudo submits 2 samples to USADA
Last month, ‘Triple C’ gave concrete proof of his plans to fight again in the UFC. In a message shared on his Twitter, Cejudo revealed that he had rejoined the USADA drug testing pool.
According to the USADA Athlete Test History, Henry Cejudo has already submitted two samples to USADA so far in the second quarter of the year.
When Cejudo had announced his return to the testing pool, no submissions had been made. As lightly as some may be taking ‘The Messenger’ in regards to a comeback fight, he seems to have solidified his intentions.
Cejudo calls for two main fights
Another topic of much discussion has been the likely opponent for Henry Cejudo. While he has called for a champ vs. champ fight against the reigning UFC featherweight king Alexander Volkanovski, it may not be his first fight back.
If there’s one thing that pisses off the boss it’s having champions fake retire in a bid to secure a higher purse. UFC president Dana White refused to take Cejudo’s declarations seriously. White is not a fan of the former bantamweight champion’s antics to gain leverage in negotiations and will probably not hand him his desired matchup.
Current UFC bantamweight titleholder Aljamain Sterling is another opponent Cejudo has been targeting for his next fight. The pair recently sat across from each other with Daniel Cormier in an honest discussion about the two.
While TJ Dillashaw’s name has come up in the discussion, the ‘King of Cringe’ has expressed no interest in taking his former opponent on again.
