Aljamain Sterling Wouldn’t Mind If Joseph Benavidez Got First Shot At Henry Cejudo

Aljamain Sterling is coming off of a decision win over Pedro Munhoz at UFC 238, a win that could conceivably give him a bantamweight title shot at two division UFC champion Henry Cejudo.

Joseph Benavidez recently defeated Jussier Formiga by second round TKO at UFC Fight Night Minneapolis, putting him in line for a flyweight title shot against the aforementioned Cejudo.

Sterling, in a series of posts on Twitter, says he wouldn’t mind if Benavidez got a flyweight title bout before a bantamweight title shot came to fruition.

 

 

Benavidez and Cejudo have previously clashed before at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale in December of 2016, with Benavidez getting the win on that night.

It could be awhile before either Benavidez or Sterling get their potential title shots, as the two division champion recently underwent surgery and could be out of action for the rest of the year.
