“First of all, people understand my relationship with Dana White and the UFC. I don’t (talk) about money publicly,” Abdelaziz said to TMZ Sports (via Simon Samano of MMA Junkie). “I think Dana’s right: I think Henry’s been talking about retirement. Do I think Henry’s gonna retire? Absolutely not. I don’t think Henry’s gonna retire.”

Cejudo hasn’t commented much on the retirement, but the fighter did say the right amount of money would end said retirement.

Abdelaziz claims that Cejudo will end his retirement and return to action by this Summer.

“Henry’s got everybody on their knees right now,” Abdelaziz said. “I don’t think he’s gonna retire. You’re gonna see him fight by this summer. This is what I think.”

The fighter did retire as just one of a handful of fighters to hold two titles at the exact same time, as he is also the former UFC Flyweight Champion.
