When it comes to the main event of UFC San Diego, Cejudo doesn’t hold back. The former UFC double-champ just wants to see both headliner fighters get knocked out on Saturday night.
“I hope they both knock each other out with at the same time,” Cejudo said on “The Triple C & Schmo Show.” You know what I mean? Double knockout. I can care [less] about either one of those dirt bags.”
Who Would Cejudo Put His Money On?
While ‘Triple C’ could care less about the matchup, there’s always money to be made when betting on fights. Cejudo reveals who’d he bet on in this bantamweight bout.
“I would make it fun and I would put it on Dominick, cause I just don’t know if Chito Vera has the IQ to catch him or to understand the game plan to fight Dominick. So, I’d make it fun and I’d probably go Dominick ‘snooze'”.
Advice For Chito Vera
As someone who has fought and beaten Cruz, Cejudo gives some tips to Vera on how to beat his upcoming opponent.
“Just catch him,” Cejudo continued. “You gotta be smart. I hope you had a good training camp because if you’re prepared for a style like that, it’s very easy to figure out. But if you don’t prepare for a style like that, you’ll be hitting the air and you’ll be getting taken down. That’s something that I believe that Dominick Crus is gonna end up trying to do to you, ‘hot cheetos.'”
Does Dominick Cruz deserve a title shot?
In a stacked bantamweight division, there are a lot of cases to be made for a title shot. Jose Aldo, Merab Dvalishvili, Petr Yan, Sean O’Malley and even Chito Vera could snag a title opportunity should they win their next fight. But what about former champ Dominick Cruz?
Win or lose this weekend, Cejudo doesn’t think ‘The Dominator’ should get another shot at the belt.
“He ain’t a contender, he’s a pretender,” Cejudo said of Cruz’s place in the division. “He already had his opportunity. I shut his lights out. So, he needs to go back to the line and that’s all there is to it.
“[Cruz] was easy money. I got rid of him in two rounds. 13 unanswered calls, come on Dom. Take it in the ‘a’ like you like it.”
