In the end, whether or not he returns can also be resolved.
According to former champion Ali Abdelaziz, Henry Cejudo will be returning to the UFC and is looking for a title to welcome him back.
“Yes, I have,” said Abdelaziz MMA Fighting regarding Cejudo’s likely return in 2022. “I’m 100% sure. I think he has. ”
Many have wondered if Cehudo returning to a title then retiring again immediately is a possibility. Abdelaziz said if that was the case, he wouldn’t be a part of it.
“I understand the UFC title is the most coveted title in all of sports,” he said. “You can’t just win a title and beat it, especially if you promise you’ll defend it. I can guarantee this, if I knew one percent that Henry would bounce, I wouldn’t get involved in it. Because, it’s important to keep my word as a man, to anyone, not just to Dana or Sean or to anyone in the UFC. As a man, I want to know that I am someone who has kept his word at all costs. I think Henry is this guy too. He is a respectable guy, he will always keep his word. “
The most likely choice for Cejudo, according to his manager, is the defending featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski.
“Of course Max deserves it too but I think the timing will be good because Henry can fight [Volkanovski] in February and Max can fight the winner,” said Abdelaziz. “But there is also a huge gap in division. You have Alexander, you have Max and that’s a huge gap and you have someone like Giga [Chikadze], who has a seven-match winning streak. Giga has a war. I think this is the perfect time for Henry to come on and see what he can do in the league. If he wins, he can fight Max and then he can fight Giga. In fact, it was a really great fight. It was a really big fight. ”
Cejudo has just welcomed their first child named America. Reports have indicated that he has rejoined the USADA test team since October 2021, which will be a requirement for his return.
