Former UFC champion in two weight categories Henry Cejudo was not impressed by the performance of TJ Dillashaw in the fight with Cory Sandhagen.
Recall that Dillashaw has not entered the octagon since January 2019, as he was serving a two-year disqualification for doping. His fight with Sandhagen lasted all five rounds and ended with Dillashaw winning by a split decision.
Cejudo, who has been enjoying retirement since May 2020, decided to once again remind himself of himself by contacting his ex-rival Dillashaw through social networks, and offering him a rematch.
While Dillashaw was forced to sit on the sidelines, Henry Cejudo went on to capture the promotions vacant bantamweight title by finishing Marlon Moraes. ‘Triple C’ would go on to defend the 135lbs title against Dominick Cruz before ultimately announcing his retirement from the sport.
Despite being retired and no longer apart of the active roster, Henry Cejudo has consistently flirted with the idea of making a comeback over the past few months. That itch only appeared to grow stronger after witnessing TJ Dillashaw and Cory Sandhagen duke it out this evening.
Shortly after ‘Killashaw’ was awarded a split decision victory from the judges in attendance at UFC Vegas 32, Henry Cejudo took to Twitter with the following cryptic message.
“Easy money for me! I was generous to give him a 32 second beat down. I won’t be so generous next time! #bendtheknee” – Cejudo wrote.
It appears that TJ Dillashaw will now fight the winner of Petr Yan vs Aljamain Sterling 2 which is set for UFC 267. With that said, a Henry Cejudo comeback might be enough to lure ‘Killashaw’ in a different direction.
