Speaking during the media scrum, Khabib Nurmagomedov said

‘’You know what’s interesting? This is not even my belt, this is Cejudo’s. I don’t even know where my belt is. People always ask me where’s your belt. Why do I need a belt I’m here, the belt doesn’t make me look good, I make the belt look good. But Cejudo’s two belts make him look good’’

Henry Cejudo, despite being a champ, has become a meme in the MMA world. His outlandish comments and over the top personality certainly catches enough attention. Khabib will have to wait to defend his title against Tony Ferguson with the fight delayed for the sixth time. Henry Cejudo will face Jose Aldo in his first Bantamweight title defense.

Speaking about Henry Cejudo vs Jose Aldo, Marlon Moraes said

“I think it’s a smart decision,” Moraes said at a recent Dominance MMA media day. “Henry, it’s his position, he’s the champion, he won two belts, he gave up the flyweight division, and he picks a good fight. Good opponent for him. Aldo’s a legend, and we’ll see what happens, but I think he was smart. He took a good fight for him.”

Cejudo has received a lot of criticism for choosing an opponent who’s coming of a loss.  Despite the hate, Aldo is still a good choice given the pedigree of the fighter. With UFC 250 packed with interesting match-ups, this is surely one to look out for.
