UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling has been attacked by Henry Cejudo, who has pointed out Sterling’s victories over Petr Yan (twice) and T.J. Dillashaw.
Bantamweight champion Sterling was ridiculed by Henry Cejudo after his victory over “handicapped fighter” TJ Dillashaw at UFC 280. In the past, Sterling had beaten Yan twice to win the title.
“Hey Alljizzlame. Your last 3 Fights.
1. Beat Yan via Academy Award
2. Gifted Dec via Guilt
3. Hate Crime over Handicapped Fighter
Sign the Contract . @funkmasterMMA,” Cejudo posted on Twitter.
Dillashaw’s shoulder ailment had been known for some time, but it resurfaced again during his one-sided TKO defeat to Sterling last Saturday in Abu Dhabi, prompting Cejudo to make his comments.
While Sterling’s DQ victory against Yan at UFC 259 was technically a victory, the manner in which it was decided has left him unable to win over supporters as champion despite the victory.
Next year, Cejudo plans on making a return against Sterling before stepping up in weight to challenge Alexander Volkanovski for the featherweight belt. He does this in the hopes of becoming a three-weight champion and solidifying his position as the greatest fighter of all time.
