Henry Cejudo disclose his hit list: Sterling, O’Malley, Volkanovski in the list

He has his sights set on Alexander Volkanovski's fourth belt, which he has been vying for years.

It will be three days short of three years since Henry Cejudo and his last bout when he makes the journey to face Aljamain Sterling at UFC 288 this coming Saturday inside Newark, New Jersey’s Prudential Centre. In his final game, Dominick Cruz was choked by Cejudo, who then retired as champion. However, “The Messenger” didn’t wait long to begin speculating about a comeback. It took until Sterling’s fight became available before his return was officially scheduled. The ex-double champion believes Sterling is “easy money,” but Cejudo should be cautious.

What did Henry Cejudo say About His Comeback Fight

He said: “[I came back] because it’s easy money,”. “I watched these guys fight after coaching some of the best guys in the world — [Jon] Jones, Demetrious Johnson, Zhang Weili, Deiveson Figueiredo, Jiri Prochazka — I started to understand my talent a little bit more.

“I know there is a window. and I know there is a gap where I really do have to say goodbye. I’m 36 years old or 36 years young, and I feel good. and I feel really good. I love the challenge. I love that people are going to doubt me. and I think that’s another reason why I’m back too. and I love being the underdog like I’ve been my whole life, and I think that’s why. And I personally think Aljamain just sucks.” Read More: Sean O’Malley shares his final thoughts on the Aljamain Sterling vs. Henry Cejudo

Cejudo aims to take down O’Malley and Volkanovski 

He has his sights set on Alexander Volkanovski’s fourth belt, which he has been vying for years. As one of the best fighters currently competing pound-for-pound, “The Great” would be the ideal opponent for Cejudo. But first, he wants to knock up Sean O’Malley, who is thought to be the next in line for the Bantamweight title fight.

“I wouldn’t mind two tune-ups before I go against Alexander Volkanovski,” said Cujedo. “Sean O’Malley, he’s that dirty Q-tip, he’s a privileged brat. I think we all know that, and I’m going to hurt him. But first things first, Aljamain is first. I know he’s confident, but I know deep down inside that he respects me a little too much. He’s going to see that competitor once the cage locks, he’s going to look into my eyes and he’s going to see what I’m made out of. Sean O’Malley is next and I like that fight. I love the fact that he’s tall, I love the fact that he’s popular, and I’m going to hurt that dude. “Right away [after UFC 288], I want O’Malley.” Read More: Ben Rothwell on the hunt for the BKFC heavyweight title, Rips the Champ Belcher
