Henry Cejudo has once again reaffirmed his status as ‘The King Of Cringe’ with a pretty bonkers call-out of the former bantamweight king Dominick Cruz.
Positioning himself at the foot of his bed with a trio of UFC belts in front of him – decorated with the names of three of his current rivals, the UFC champ-turned-storyteller dives deep into character with this one.
To be honest, we would explain it in greater detail but you’d likely be better off if you just watched it.

Dominick Cruz has not been seen in action in over two-and-a-half years due to a string of unfortunate injuries.
Plagued by a myriad of issues in the second half of his career, there are still quite a lot of people who regard The Dominator as the greatest bantamweight of all-time – despite him losing out in stunning fashion to the then-prospect Cody Garbrandt at UFC 207.
It is quite a shame that Cruz hasn’t had the opportunity to bounce back from what was, all things considered, an embarrassing loss to No Love but even with his past glories in mind, would pushing him directly into a title-shot over the likes of Aljamain Sterling be fair?
It’s difficult to know but with this latest video, the champ has made his wish for a ‘tune-up fight’ clear – citing his ridiculously difficult schedule of late and his need to fight someone a bit more breakable.
Those who know of Cruz and his talents will understand that he is a very tough matchup for anyone at 135lbs but even now, it’s hard to know exactly how close he is to a return.
Only time will tell if we will ever see the legendary champion in action again.
