He’s done amazing things in both flyweight and bantamweight but Álex Volkanovski thinks that facing Henry Cejudo would be a waste of time for the featherweight division. This is undoubtedly the fight that most interests “Triple C”, who is still retired, although wishing to compete in a third category, also try to crown himself at 145 pounds.
What’s more, the UFC World Featherweight Champion tells Submission Radio that “That will never happen”.
“I think he’s getting a little nervous asking for a title fight so much. He doesn’t stop asking for it. It is sad that he retired and now he is throwing trash at everyone. It looks like he’s even moving the shit * in the divisions he retired from. He’s still talking about those guys but he’s obviously challenging me.
“And again, if it was going to happen, it was at the beginning of the year. But, once again, I have a division to maintain and I have my sights set on my division. I want to fight the number one contenders. And if for any reason the UFC pressures me to fight him, they will have to pay me well because it would be a waste of time for me. A waste of time for division.
“He’s done great things at flyweight and bantamweight, but featherweight is a completely different beast. So it has never been done. I understand why you want to try, I understand that it makes sense. Because it would be a win-win situation for him. If I go out and give him a beating everyone will think I’m bigger and blah blah blah.
“That’s why it doesn’t make sense to me, because everyone is going to wait for him to come out and crush him. And that’s exactly what would happen. Without disrespecting Henry Cejudo, this division is a completely different beast. Therefore, it would be a waste of time. It will never happen“
