Henry Cejudo responds to Dominick Cruz
Henry Cejudo has been teasing a comeback to MMA since retiring after defeating Dominick Cruz at UFC 249. Cruz has been speaking ahead of his UFC 259 clash with Casey Kenney and claims that "Triple C" is most likely asking for far more money than he is worth and hence why Dana White is happy to move on from him.
Cejudo hasn't let this comment go and has poked fun at Cruz for the fact he knocked him out and also because of Cruz being placed on the prelims.
This comment right here smells like alcohol and cigarettes. You still waking up from the nap I gave you -- --? Have fun on the prelims Dominique -------- https://t.co/UNCiLuvN55— Henry Cejudo (@HenryCejudo) February 24, 2021

Andy Ruiz has taken the time off since losing the Anthony Joshua rematch to get himself in fantastic shape. Ruiz Jr is as slick of a boxer as they come and he could be a real threat again at heavyweight with better cardio.

400lb MMA behemoth wrongly celebrates after landing massive punch
MMA cult hero Zuluzinho, a 6ft 6in, 400lb Brazilian who once fought the likes of Fedor Emelianenko, sank to the canvas after landing a shot that he thought had ended the fight – only to be told the round had just ended. Zuluzinho eventually lost the fight by a majority defeat against the unbeaten Shuaev, bringing the veteran's run of three successive wins to a close.

Viral MMA practitioner starts GoFundMe following bathroom brawl with Oklahoma wide receiver
For those who missed it, Spencer Jones, a footballer from the University of Oklahoma, was videoed getting beaten up by Walker Brown who is a wrestler. While Jones seems to be the one who initiates the fight, Brown is certainly the one who finishes it.

Unfortunately, Brown has had to start a GoFundMe due to the repercussions of the video going viral.
“Hi everyone. I am the guy in the bathroom fight video,” Brown wrote, “I have laughed with the funny comments about my cowboy boots and cauliflower ear. I have not commented because there is an on-going investigation. I have been advised to get an attorney. I am also facing a surgery from an injury I received while defending myself and will be looking at some unplanned medical bills and time off of work recovering from the surgery. I am a full-time student who works two jobs.
First, I would like to thank you all for the generous support that I have received from all over the country. It is overwhelming in a good way! Strangers have even offered to help me cover the costs of defending myself and so I have set up this account for anyone who would like to contribute. I feel awkward doing this because I want to work and pay my own bills, but I am realizing that may be difficult for a little bit. I will say that YES, there was something that occurred prior to the start of the video as my nose doesn’t bleed for no reason. After I hire an attorney, I will make a statement so you will know my side of the story. Thank you again for all of the support.”
