Marlon vera on henry cejudo getting a title shot after retiring
Usually, fighters have to prove themselves thoroughly by winning consistently to get a title shot. However, perhaps the retired UFC fighter, Henry cejudo, gets to skip the line because he has proved himself on various other occasions.
The defending bantamweight champion will most likely fight against the veteran henry cejudo in May. “What do you feel about henry cejudo jumping back from retirement and going into a title shot?” the interviewer asked Marlon vera in a press conference.
“He’s broke. You know what’s the point to come back when you retire on top? You know you come back because you either need attention or you miss that thing or you need money” Vera said in response to the question.
Fans would love to see if either Marlon vera or Cory sandhagen make their way to getting a title shot, and the fight tomorrow will be a great decider for both their careers.
