One must admire the 3rd ranked pound for pound fighter for his single-minded determination. The Bantamweight Champion knew that no matter who the opponent was, he had to be ready. It’s tough to disagree with his caption where he sends out a warning and says he doesn’t know the difference between camp or quarantine.
Earlier, ‘Triple C’ was set to face Jose Aldo in Brazil and even began trash-talking the fighter. Later, Aldo pulled out as he wouldn’t be able to travel amidst the pandemic. A whole host of other fighters put their name forward. But Dominick Cruz was chosen and ‘Triple C’ seamlessly transitioned into trash-talking him too.
It seems as though he has every intention in proving to the world that ‘The Dominator’ is brittle. In a chat with Schmo, he branded the 34-year-old a “little brittle princess.”
The fight will certainly be exciting and hold a candle to the Ferguson-Gaethje main event. Daniel Cormier is hyped up about it. While talking to Ariel Helwani he called the duo “two of the most elite personalities in the game.”
He also said he wouldn’t miss watching them fight. We also certainly wouldn’t as it promises to be a cracker.
Will The Dominator’ back up his claims or Cejudo talking too much just for the hype? It would certainly be a fairytale return for him. However, looking at ‘The Messenger’s physique it’s tough to see him succumbing to the challenge of a fighter who will make his first foray into the Octagon in 40 months.
