Urijah Faber And Henry Cejudo Already Going At It Amidst Title Fight Discussion!
This past weekend Urijah Faber (35-10 MMA, 11-6 UFC) made a big statement at UFC Fight Night 155 in his hometown Sacramento, California after knocking out Ricky Simon (15-2) in 48 seconds.
But it was long before the “The California Kid” called out the current bantamweight and flyweight champion Henry Cejudo (15-2) for a title shot at 135 pounds.
Well, Cejudo’s response to that on Twitter by calling Faber a corn-rolled princess.
And Faber came back with…
“The Cringe is real @HenryCejudo. U can Triple C Deez nuts swinging over your face while you’re laying on the canvas.”

Cejudo then felt the need to rub his two belts and Olympic gold medal in Faber’s face during the exchange on Twitter…
“Sorry, Urijah! I’m taken already by my two belts and my precious gold medal.”

This is only the beginning of the trash talk between the two fighters and if a fight is set up between them, it’ll be an all-out war. But, one thing is for sure and that’s a lot of people would love to see this fight.
Faber at 40 years old has something to prove after coming out of retirement and his next fight could be do or die for him. But, Cejudo isn’t just going to relinquish his title as he’s earned it with some really impressive wins.
