Petr Yan Accuses Henry Cejudo Of Ducking Him

Petr Yan is currently ranked #3 in the UFC Bantamweight Division and is coming off of a win over UFC Hall Of Fame member Urijah Faber at UFC 245.

The victory and the ranking don’t seem to impress UFC Bantamweight Champion Henry Cejudo, who would rather face former UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo, who is winless at bantamweight, instead of Yan.

Yan, seemingly angered by the fact that Cejudo would rather face Aldo over him, has taken to Twitter to accuse Cejudo of ducking him:

 

“I think it’s pretty obvious he is ducking me and doing everything he can to avoid fighting me. All this talk about him wanting a bigger name is (expletive), he just wants easier fight for himself.”

Cejudo is still recovering from a shoulder surgery performed in 2019, so whether Aldo or Yan is next for him is inconsequential at the moment until the champion fully recovers.
