Henry Cejudo: “Rodriguez is a tougher challenge for Volkanovski than Makhachev”

Henry Cejudo:

The MMA community greatly underestimates Yair Rodriguez, considering Alexander Volkanovski a multiple favorite in the upcoming unification bout, former UFC dual champion Henry Cejudo is sure.

“I know that in this fight most of you will bet on Volkanovski, but if Yair can hone some things, get them right in this fight, I believe that he can be a much more difficult challenge for Alex than Islam Makhachev,” stated “Triple Champion” in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

“Because Rodriguez will throw more kicks, and if he is on the ground, he will act much sharper and more dangerous. In addition, I see that Yair can easily beat him on points. He doesn’t even need to knock out Alex – he can just outmaneuver him.”

“If I had to pick a winner, I would say Rodriguez would be the new featherweight king. I’m serious”

A featherweight unification bout between Alexander Volkanovski and Yair Rodriguez will headline UFC 290 in Las Vegas on July 8.
