Conor McGregor was not kind to Henry Cejudo after UFC 288
Leading up to Henry Cejudo's return to combat sports against Aljamain Sterling at UFC 288, he'd spoken a few words about Conor McGregor. He said he'd be willing to advise him on how to get back to his winning ways as he has a 1-3 record in his last four fights, but he would never coach him in an MMA fight. This is because he thought the Irishman went "too far" with things he'd said about Khabib's late father after his passing and called his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, a rat and terrorist.
McGregor didn't take kindly to this news and clapped back with a Twitter video after Cejudo lost a split decision in his return.
McGregor is currently getting ready to fight Michael Chandler after coaching a season of The Ultimate Fighter against him. Their bout doesn't have a set date but is expected to take place in late 2023. The bout will take place up in weight from their normal 155 lbs, and instead be at Welterweight.
Cejudo is working on setting up his own next fight against Merab Dvalishvili at UFC 292 in Boston.
Both of these fighters are legends in the sport and are two of only four double-champions in UFC history. Cejudo beat Demetrious Johnson and Marlon Moraes for the Flyweight and Bantamweight titles and defended them against T.J. Dillashaw and Dominick Cruz.
McGregor defeated Jose Aldo in 13 seconds and knockoff out Eddie Alvarez for his Featherweight and Lightweight titles. However, he was stripped of both due to inactivity before notching any title defenses.
What do you make of the situation and deleted video? Should either fighter have shown more class to the other? Let us know with a comment.
