Former UFC dual-weight champion Henry Cejudo has said he is considering a potential fight with former 145-pound titleholder Max Holloway.
“I have never called out Max Holloway. Even when he had the belt, I have never called him out. I feel like in the future, I would love to fight him. People would not believe me that I could beat him. He’s so damn tall and what he’s been able to do,” said Henry Cejudo in an interview with ESPN’s journalist Brett Okamoto.
“I love that challenge. I love the fact people don’t think I could beat him. He’s taller than me and has inflicted more damage on different people, but I feel like I’m too smart and too skilled.”
Cejudo has fought at flyweight and bantamweight but he has said for a while now that he would like to move up to featherweight to challenge Volkanovski. As the 5’4″ tall Cejudo said, the 5’11” tall Holloway is a much taller man, but as 5’6″ tall Volkanovski showed, Holloway can be beaten by a shorter fighter. Holloway seems destined to get the next title fight at 145lbs, but a superfight with Cejudo would sure be a heck of a lot of fun.
