Deiveson Figueiredo shares an intimidating message for Henry Cejudo to notice. The Flyweight champion apparently intends to end Cejudo’s retirement stint.
Contrary to most of the world, Deiveson Figeireido and his fans surely would have wanted 2020 to continue, as in the span of the last 12 months the Brazilian not only became the new undisputed king of the Flyweight division but also cemented his reign by defending the title twice.
Now it is 2021, and a new set of possibilities will address the 33-year-old this year. In lines with the same, it is a general acceptance that at some point in the year he will settle the dispute with Brandon Moreno, with whom he reached a stalemate at UFC 256. But, since it is a sport where there exists a norm of predicting future fixtures well in advance, and if a fighter is on an incredible run then the process becomes even more prevalent, hence, with an elevation in status, Deiveson Figueiredo in every means is an ideal candidate about whom the conjectures of the kind can be made.
However, based on how the recent weeks have gone by, it is not difficult to assess who is heavily linked with Figueiredo.
Former flyweight champion and one of the four multi-titleholders of UFC Henry Cejudo has been firing shots at Figueiredo lately. Cejudo, who is out retired from the MMA circuit, has made social media the new mode of picking fights with active fighters. And thus, noting his spectacular rise, it seems the god of war is his new target.

Deiveson Figueiredo Vs. Henry Cejudo: Social Meida Warfare
Recently in an interview with MMA fighting, Deiveson Figueiredo weighed in on the possibility of fighting Henry Cejudo and welcomed the idea by stating that he wants to face him for the BMF belt. Upon noticing, Triple-C took to Twitter to address the supposed challenge of Figeureido and apparently belittled the importance of the Flyweight title, which Figueiredo currently owns.
In response, Cejudo has posted a clip on his Instagram handle, carrying a brief message for the 34-year-old. He can be seen stating, ” Hey Cejudo, look at me fatso I’m going to knock you out!!!! My middle name is “Danger.” Further, the short video also showcases a poster with an apparent contentious image and a warning that says, “Cejudo, once I have knocked out Moreno. I will take your ugly pumpkin head off.”

While Henry Cejudo has in the past expressed interest in fighting Alexander Volkanovski but, will it ultimately be Deiveson Figueiredo, who will force him to come back from retirement? In the coming months, we will know for sure.
