Former two-division champion, Henry Cejudo has decided to make his return. He took on Twitter calling out the current bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling. While Conor McGregor has fired back at Cejudo, breaking out a rivalry between them.

Aljamain Sterling successfully defeated Petr Yan in UFC 273 to become the UFC bantamweight champion which was vacated by ‘Triple C’ on the mark of his retirement.

He had overall two losses in his career, both to Demetrious Johnson at UFC 197 and to Joseph Benavidez in the Ultimate Fighter 24 finale. But everything changed after that. Since then, Cejudo has not lost a single professional bout. He eventually won his last six fights.

After his retirement from UFC, he appeared regularly in events and podcasts.

On Twitter, a surprising feud erupted between ‘Triple C’ and ‘Mystic Mac,’ with both of them exchanging heated tweets back and forth.

Conor McGregor’s beef with Henry Cejudo

Both fighters have one thing in common, they are both former UFC two-division champions who are presently out of the game and hoping to make a comeback.

McGregor, coming out of his inactivity after his fracture from Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, started posting his new workouts on his social media accounts, mentioning his comeback from the injury.


Everything is done naked. No fakes, no faints, no level changes. But you think you’re going to get a different result,” Cejudo tweeted. “You work to much on combinations where you should be working entries, set ups, and setting traps. Just a tip from the goat  mahhhh.”

‘The Notorious’ isn’t a fighter who takes criticism less seriously, he retaliates by tweeting back calling Cejudo ‘Little Fat Voice” and saying the opening punches are faints and traps.

‘Triple C’ not giving up, tweeted back, pointing out McGregor’s broken leg from his last bout.
