Henry Cejudo Wants Dominick Cruz To Be The Backup At UFC 250

Henry Cejudo is scheduled to defend the UFC Bantamweight Title against former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 250.

The country of Brazil is currently prohibiting people to travel there due to a coronavirus lockdown. Cejudo, just in case UFC 250 doesn’t go down in Brazil and Aldo cannot make it stateside, wants former UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz to be the backup for the event.
