Sean O’Malley: Henry Cejudo Won’t Return

Sean O'Malley:

By refusing to fight Marlon Vera, Henry Cejudo indirectly made it clear that he is no longer going to return to the octagon, I am sure the contender for the UFC bantamweight championship belt, Sean O’Malley.

“I think that’s what happened – Dana White said to Henry, ‘You have to beat Cheeto to fight Sean’, and then Henry grabbed his shoulder,” the American fighter said in the next episode of his podcast. “I think Henry is done. He has finally retired and will not return. He tried to come back, but no one cared. He earned a little – it’s good for him. Especially if he really has such a serious shoulder injury that he cannot fight. Let’s not forget that the dude is already 36 years old, something like that”

Having left the duel with the Ecuadorian due to injury, the “Triple Champion” said that he wants to see either Merab Dvalishvili, who occupies the first line in the bantamweight division, or the current UFC flyweight champion, Brandon Moreno, as his next opponent.

Recall that the fight between Henry Cejudo and Marlon Vera was supposed to take place on August 19 at UFC 292 in Boston, and Sean O’Malley in the main event of the numbered event will try to take the bantamweight championship belt from his compatriot Aljamain Sterling.
