Former 2 division UFC Champion Henry Cejudo and current Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling have been going back and forth on Twitter.
Cejudo sent out a tweet on April 1st, saying “this ain’t no April fools but I’m what @ColbyCovMMA thinks he is! #facts.” Aljamain Sterling then seemingly started the ‘Twitter War,’ replying and saying “you got something in your teeth, ex-champ.”
Initially, Henry Cejudo had remained respectful of Sterling, apologising for his original comments where he said that Sterling had ‘faked’ the injury he sustained during the Petr Yan Championship fight. That respect however, has seemingly disappeared.

‘Yep, it’s a bit of disgust from watching you fake your way to a Title. You Oscar winner” is how Henry Cejudo chose to respond. “I learned from the best ‘champ'” was Sterling’s final comment, after which Cejudo chose to maul him: ‘I would respond to this but you’ll fake a concussion.’
This continues the Henry Cejudo ‘I’m retired but not really’ narrative that has been ongoing for quite some time. Cejudo clearly wants to fight again, but he is trying to negotiate better pay to re-enter the octagon once again.
The chance of a major Aljamain Sterling vs Henry Cejudo fight does however intrigue; the potential box office could be a major draw on a PPV, but it remains to be seen if this is a route the company chooses to go down.
