Despite the fact that the bantamweight title fight has replenished the card of the UFC 288 tournament, Henry Cejudo does not believe that he will see Aljamain Sterling in the cage on May 6th.
“At the moment I really don’t believe Sterling,” Cejudo said in yet another video posted on his YouTube channel. Why don’t I trust him? Yes, because he is afraid of the “Triple Champion”, everything is simple”
“There is a reason why the UFC needs this fight. They believe Sean O’Malley has a better chance against me than against Aljamain. A clash of styles, I don’t mind, but right now they’re counting on Triple Champion to come out and do all the dirty work.”
If Sterling doesn’t show up, Cejudo is ready to split the octagon with O’Malley.
“In this regard, I want to turn to O’Malley and tell him – be ready! Obviously, I will start preparing for the fight with Aljamain Sterling, but I will be ready to make changes to the training camp in case of a change of opponent.
