O'Malley claims the former UFC double champ doesn't have much funds left, and needs a fight again soon.

Sean O’Malley believes Henry Cejudo is hurting for money, leading to his call-out of him recently.

Sean O’Malley Claims Henry Cejudo Is Short On Cash

O’Malley was recently a guest on “The MMA Hour” with Ariel Helwani to reflect on his victory over Petr Yan from UFC 280.

During the interview, O’Malley was asked about former UFC dual-weight champion Henry Cejudo calling him out for a fight.

O’Malley said he has heard that Cejudo isn’t doing too well financially, hence the reason for the call-out.

“That dude is – I heard from someone close to him he has like 37 dollars left in the bank, he’s trying to do literally anything to get some money, trying to book a fight, so. I don’t know.

Henry is like a opening main card, kind of co-main event kind of dude. Even if Aljo and him go fight, they’ll probably be some co-main event on some card. It’s just hard to say.

Every time we talk about this guy it’s like ‘Is he actually coming back?’ I don’t know, I don’t put much thought into that.”

The rising UFC bantamweight title contender was then asked about the rumors that the UFC is attempting to book Aljamain Sterling for his next bantamweight title defense in Perth against Cejudo.

O’Malley isn’t sure what the UFC is planning to do next, but two things are for certain – things will become a lot more clear after he meets with the Las Vegas-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. And finally, he needs to fight twice a year – even if that means fighting again before his title shot.

“I heard it just because you said it. Other than that I haven’t heard that. I don’t know. I saw Aljo tweet something about June, which wouldn’t make sense. I think we’re going to have a lot of questions answered after I talk to the UFC.”

“I need to fight twice a year. Ideally, I wait for the title but if it makes it to where I can’t fight twice a year, I might have to whoop Chito or whoop Cory or someone in the meantime while I wait. Ideally, the next fight is for the title.”
