Henry Cejudo might be the most active retiree in UFC history.
The eight months since the former flyweight and bantamweight champion announced his retirement has felt more like eight weeks, as Cejudo has seemingly spent just as much time calling out anyone he can think of as he did with two belts draped over his shoulders.
Cejudo has stirred the pot with the usual and expected list of Petr Yan and Alex Volkanovski, to names outside of the Octagon like Jake Paul and Ryan Garcia. And there certainly hasn’t been a lack of cringey videos. In fact, Cejudo even spent time in a recording studio, with a music video to prove it.
So why has the “King of Cringe” not kicked his feet up after the culmination of a competitive career which spans nearly two decades?
“People think I miss the game, miss the sport, wonder if I’m going to come back, but honestly, sometimes I just get bored and I gotta call somebody out,” Cejudo said.
In his time away from the keyboard, “Triple C” has split his focus between starting his next endeavor in real estate and spending a significant amount of time with Mike Tyson leading up to his exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. in November.
The amount of time spent with Tyson had fight fans wondering if they would see Cejudo swap his four-ounce gloves for a pair of ten-ounce ones anytime soon.
