Henry Cejudo and Demetrious Johnson trade jabs on Twitter; Cejudo lays out future plans

Former flyweight title challenger Henry Cejudo took to Twitter to call out champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson and vowed to end Johnson’s title reign. Cejudo called out Johnson for his lack of success as a PPV money fighter and his love for video games.

Cejudo continued his onslaught against Johnson saying that he heard Johnson overplayed his hand in getting a fight against T.J. Dillashaw in August and now Johnson is trying to get back onto the UFC 227 card.

Johnson, who owns a first-round TKO victory over Cejudo at UFC 197 and the UFC record for most title defenses, responded to Cejudo with a very comical response which included his video games.

Cejudo then went on to reveal some plans, although it hasn’t been confirmed by the UFC or anyone. Cejudo said that if Joseph Benavidez defeats Sergio Pettis at UFC 225, there would be an interim title fight between Cejudo and Benavidez to determine who faced Johnson next.

Johnson last fought at UFC 216 where he broke the record for most UFC title defenses when he defeated Ray Borg by fifth-round submission, with an impressive flying armbar. Since that victory, Johnson has gone back-and-forth with the UFC about a possible fight with bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw, and also recovering from shoulder surgery.

The Dillashaw and Johnson fight did not get made, and Dillashaw will now rematch Cody Garbrandt at UFC 227 in Los Angeles on August 4.

As of now, there is no word on Cejudo’s next fight, but the flyweight fight between Benavidez and Pettis should get things in order for the flyweight division.
