Henry Cejudo had the mixed martial arts world on the edge of its seats after hinting at retirement following his loss to Bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling in the main event of UFC 288.
However, despite the uncertainty surrounding his future, Cejudo now desires to continue fighting. He is already looking for his next opponent to be the No. 1 ranked Bantamweight Merab Dvalishvili.
Cejudo broke the news on Twitter when he called him out for a showdown at UFC 292 in Boston. The event is also expected to feature Sterling's next title defense against Sean O'Malley, which should make for an exciting card.
Dvalishvili, Cejudo's potential opponent, currently holds a record of 16-4 MMA (9-2 UFC) and is known for his brute physicality and relentless takedowns. His last fight was a dominating performance over Petr Yan, and in the fight before that, he took out Jose Aldo in his retirement fight.
This is Cejudo's second fight after a three-year layoff, prior to which he was riding wins over Demetrious Johnson, T.J. Dillashaw, Marlon Moraes, and Dominick Cruz.
Can Cejudo return to the height of his career and add Merab Dvalishvili to his list of highlights, or will he face a losing streak for the 2nd time in his career at 36 years old? Conor McGregor weighed in and doesn't think highly of his fellow former 'Champ-Champ.'
