Cejudo retired earlier this year after a win over Dominick Cruz. He walked away as a two-division champion. However, ever since his retirement, ‘Triple C’ has always mentioned that he would come back if the price was right. Moreover, a chance to become a three-division champion would definitely entice him back to the sport. 

‘No Love’ was scheduled to fight Figueiredo last month. However, an injury forced him out of the card. Cody has fought just once each year from 2017 to 2020. In his fight against Assuncao, he showed what he is capable of when fully fit and focused.

If he were to win another fight in dominant fashion, it might tempt ‘Triple C’ to get back in the octagon to face him. Unfortunately, it seems like a long shot at this point in time.
