Urijah Faber and Henry Cejudo have both called each other out, and the possibility of them fighting each other seems likely. But, according to Cejudo’s manager in Ali Abdelaziz, he doesn’t believe that fight is next as Faber doesn’t deserve it.
Instead, he should fight Marlon Moraes for the chance to fight Cejudo to prove he is a top bantamweight.
“Urijah you know he got an impressive win last week. But, we never really got to see Urijah. He is 40-years-old and is coming back,” Abdelaziz said to TMZ Sports. “This is a young man’s game but you can’t deny him. The guy has been around for a long time. But, if he really wants to fight Henry Cejudo, I have a proposal for him. If you want Henry Cejudo, you can’t be the number 15 guy and fight Henry. There are a lot of guys in line. You got Aljamain Sterling in line, Petr Yan in line, but the guy above them is Marlon Moraes. He has a number ahead of him, number one. Marlon Moraes is number one.
