Henry Cejudo is upset.
The oldschool two-weight champion could per chance furthermore have retired from mixed martial arts, but has long teased a return to the game must still the gorgeous opportunity — and deal — come up. When UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski no longer too long previously seen a scheduled battle with Max Holloway drop through, Cejudo understanding that moment had arrived. As a alternative, the UFC selected to maneuver with a Volkanovski – Korean Zombie match up, which has left a foul model in the mouth of the olympian.
A disappointing flip of events for a man aiming to be the major to yell a belt in three totally different divisions.
“I could per chance be most steadily known as C4,” Cejudo said, speaking to MMAJunkie. “But you furthermore mght must compensate on tale of I’m the person that’s going to promote the battle. I’m the person that goes to produce it moving, you perceive? So yeah, I contrivance desire my cake and revel in it too. I in actual fact contrivance. But I also in actual fact contrivance deserve it. If I don’t get it, guys, it’s OK. You guys desire me to direct you my trophy case once extra? It’s OK. I got ample of it. Demetrious Johnson’s document used to be going to be broken. Anyone better than Jon Jones will come.”
In Cejudo’s mind, the general issue comes all the model down to a extremely long-established motive. He desires a obvious amount of cash, and UFC president Dana White doesn’t are desirous to pay it.
“They don’t are desirous to pay, man,” Cejudo said. “It’s undeniable and simple. They don’t are desirous to pay. Dana doesn’t are desirous to pay. (If) they pay me, they got to pay the leisure. And I’m out here. I’m no longer here to speak to originate a union. What I’m here to speak is like, ‘Hi there, man, all and sundry must still be compensated in my understanding.’ The fellows are going to promote the battle, the fellows that that are confirmed, like me. You know what I’m announcing? So that’s undeniable and simple. Dana would hang to maneuver wanting for the battle, but he desires to pay me peanuts when in contrast to what I in actual fact deserve. I recognize the person on tale of it’s his commerce, what he’s ready to contrivance to exercise this company to a two-billion-buck company to what it’s rate now seven (to) nine billion and I’m able to’t get a elevate. That valid seems moderately off to me, man.
“… If Conor McGregor is making cash and getting paid, and Jorge Masvidal. They’re doing what they’re doing and so they’re getting paid extra than me and I got two belts and I’m doing the particular identical shit and I’m no longer getting compensated, then you perceive what? Fuck you, too.”
