- Henry Cejudo is coming out of retirement and wants to make an epic UFC return
- “Triple C” has already fired shots at a couple of UFC stars
After nearly two years, former two-division UFC Champion Henry Cejudo is finally gearing up for his MMA comeback. He and his team has confirmed the news and is expected to keep his fans posted for updates.
Cejudo is back
Cejudo’s manager Ali Abdelaziz confirmed the news on Sunday to MMA Fighting and ‘Triple C’ himself would announce that he had re-entered the USADA testing pool on Monday.
“No cringe. Just straight talk,” Cejudo wrote. “I’ve entered the USADA pool.
“I know I could beat Alex Volkanovski. I want to become the 1st 3-division champion in UFC history. Or, he could shut up the cringe. It would be a treat for fans. Either way the [king] is back!”

“Triple C” open fired at current and former champs
As expected, the loud former two-division king also made his pitch for a showdown with the current and former champions, Aljamain Sterling, Alexander Volkanovski and T.J. Dillashaw.
“Volkanovski: He’s got no competition at FTW after Max [Holloway],” he added. “Aljo & TJ: I could beat both those dudes for the title I never lost It’s time for The Return of the King.”
Cejudo followed it up in a series of tweets.
“You’ve inspired me to come back,” Cejudo said of Volkanovski. “When it comes to wrestling, you couldn’t pin a tweet. I would take you down and choke you out quicker than a [Conor] McGregor relapse. Sign the contract.”

Should everything goes well for Cejudo, he will surely make history in the sport and will certainly shut a couple of his doubters up.
