Former two-division champion Henry Cejudo mocked Sean O’Malley in yet another tweet.
After defeating Dominick Cruz, Henry Cejudo officially retired at UFC 249. However, it seems like he cannot distance himself from MMA. “Triple C” has been dissing everybody on social media. Recently, he has been trolling an unranked bantamweight contender, Sean O’Malley.
Why? Well, prior to UFC 252, O’Malley was undefeated and had a lot of hype behind him. However, that changed after his defeat to rising contender Marlon Vera. Post-fight, O’Malley made comments that rubbed some fans the wrong way. He received a ton of backlash from fans, critics, and Henry Cejudo.
In a recent tweet, the “King of Cringe” said O’Malley will never get close to his belt. It is worth noting that Cejudo believes he is still the champion. In fact, he called Petr Yan — the reigning bantamweight champion — “rent-a-champ.”
Cejudo also stated that “Suga Sean” will be the champion at rolling joints and ankles, referencing to his lifestyle and his last fight at UFC 252. Read the tweet below.
This is not the first time that Cejudo took a dig at O’Malley. Previously, he called O’Malley a “keyboard warrior” and even posted a photoshopped picture of the UFC belt.
It is a no-brainer that Cejudo has had a terrible retirement so far. Besides O’Malley, the 33-year-old has targeted featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski too. Volkanovski, one of the smaller featherweights, is likely to be a favorable matchup for Cejudo, who is a big bantamweight.
In the past, the Olympic gold medalist said that he will return to fighting if he gets a title shot with Volkanovski. Though it may seem like a distant reality, the world of mixed martial arts is unpredictable.
