Henry Cejudo puts 'corn-rolled princess' Urijah Faber on notice after UFC on ESPN+ 13

Recommended Posts

Henry Cejudo had a response to Urijah Faber after the UFC Hall of Famer suggested a fight with the UFC bantamweight champion following his win at UFC on ESPN+ 13.

Faber (35-10 MMA, 11-6 UFC) got back in the octagon after more than two years on Saturday and defeated rising prospect Ricky Simon (15-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) by knockout in just 48 seconds. It was the perfect scenario for “The California Kid,” who got the job done in front of his hometown crowd at Golden1 Center in Sacramento, Calif.

Cejudo (14-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) started talk of a matchup when he mentioned Faber as a possible opponent following his knockout of Marlon Moraes to claim the 135-pound belt in June. Faber fired back following his big win, and while it remains to be seen if the UFC is interested in booking the fight, the champion is certainly doing his part to build it.

Hours after UFC on ESPN+ 13, Cejudo took to social media and issued a response to Faber (via Twitter):

Careful what you wish for my corn-rolled princess. You could be the next legend to bend the knee to Triple C. https://t.co/j5NcVrEoqz

Cejudo’s next fight is still not close to being booked after the dual-UFC titleholder underwent shoulder surgery this past month. His timeline for a return is early 2020 or maybe December if things go perfectly.

Faber said post-fight he will soon sit down with the UFC brass and assess his future coming off a triumphant return from retirement, and at this point all signs point to a potential matchup with Cejudo being part of the discussion.
