Dana White Says Henry Cejudo Defending The Flyweight Title Next

Two division UFC Champion Henry Cejudo last competed in the main event of UFC 238, defeating Marlon Moraes to win the UFC Bantamweight Title.

As far as whats next for Cejudo, it would appear that he’ll be defending the UFC Flyweight Title according to UFC President Dana White.

“You’d have to look at Joe [Benavidez],” White said to TMZ Sports. “[At 135] I don’t know but next he should defend that title. He would go to 125, defend that title, then we would decide who he would fight next. As long as Cejudo is willing to defend both titles, I think he is a guy that can carry both of them, and by both of them I mean both divisions.”

Cejudo won the UFC Flyweight Title by defeating Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227, but he has to defend that championship.

Urijah Faber called out Cejudo after a successful return at UFC Fight Night Sacramento and White won’t rule out a potential title bout.

“I don’t know. Listen, he proved to me that he wasn’t too old because he beat a real guy,” White said. “He beat a real guy in devastating fashion so he’s obviously not too old. We’ll see what happens.”

It could be awhile before Cejudo defends either title, as the two division champion is currently recovering from shoulder surgery.
