Aljamain Sterling: ‘Henry Cejudo is the fight that’s gonna happen next’

UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling appears to have his next fight lined up. “Funk Master” will be facing former two-division titleholder Henry Cejudo next.

Sterling made the announcement in a video posted to his YouTube channel on Thursday.

“I’m announcing that I am gonna fight Henry next,” Sterling said. “We are targeting March. So, I will say, Ali (Abdelaziz), brother, it’s done, but it’s still not done until there’s ink on the paper, you know what I mean? But it’s done. It’s done, brother, but it’s still kind of not done, you know? But this is the fight that’s going to happen next.”

Cejudo stepped away from the fight game after defeating Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in May 2020 to retain the 135-pound title. In May of this year, Cejudo’s coach Eric Albarracin revealed that Cejudo had re-entered the USADA testing pool with the intention of returning to the octagon.
