    Speaking in a recent interview, Cejudo’s manager Abdelaziz confirmed that his client Cejudo is set to return to the Octagon in 2022. He believes he will return as a featherweight, but bantamweight is also possible.

    “Yes, I do (think Cejudo fights again in 2022). 100-percent I do. I think he does,” Abdelaziz said. “If he lost, he can go down to 135. He’s not coming in for one fight. He’s coming in for a legacy fight to get three belts but at the end of the day, too, there’s a lot of fights at 135 and 145, too, it’s no problem. He’s a competitor. As long as he’s breathing, this guy’s going to be a competitor.”

    I'll believe it when I see it, he's weighing in and he's in the cage. Until then, I hope the King of Cringe stays off the Twitter machine.

    I hope he does. He is one of the best talents mma has ever had.
    He should go to 135 though, he is no match whatsoever for Volkanovski imo

    he seemed desperate to create a family. I understand him cause he is very tiny and women aren't attracted to small men but glad he made it.

    I want his return fight to be vs Volk. I just want to see that fight. If Henry loses than he can go back to 135.

    if Cejudos really serious abour 145, beat one guy in top 10 to prove size isnt a factor (which I think it wil be)

    Then if he does manage to win with a good finish then start demanding a title fight

    Too bad he peaced out when he did. Really had a chance to cement himself with the greatest fighters of all time had he stayed and kept winning.

    I would like to see a trilogy between him and MM, although I don't feel MM lost the 2nd fight.

    Would be cool if he came back. His retirement was unexpected for sure.

    To be honest, I don't like it. He is going to be on the older side for a "little" guy and we see a lot of guys age overnight. Even guys like TJ, I am still not sold that he isn't shot because he fought a training partner. There were moments in that fight TJ got hit by shots he just couldn't react to or see.

    The guy tried to act like he was too cool for the sport and retired, and then has moped around desperate for attention because nobody started begging him to come back

    One of the more entertaining fighters of the past few years. The cringe factor was actually funny for once. I want to see that angry face again.

    Is 5'4" too short for featherweight?

    The current shortest FW is Alexander Volkanovski and he is 5'6", the other 5'6" guys who competed at FW are TJ Laramie and Ricky Simon and they've both moved to bantamweight

    It's clear he ran away because he feared losing. He has potential at the micro weight classes, but he won't be a world beater like he pretends.

    I hope he does come back. Ever since he beat D. Johnson for the title, he's been one of my favorite fighters to watch. His striking was much improved, and he was getting finishes against top guys. First 3 division champion ever?

    So both Cejudo and Jones had a last fight in 2020 and are returning in 2022 in a higher division after exactly 2 years of s̶u̶s̶p̶e̶n̶s̶i̶o̶n̶ hiatus?

    Him and Jones both popped for the same thing? Will be nice to see them both back on cards soon.

    I want to see Petr Yan vs Cejudo. Not interested in Cejudo vs Volkanovski i really believe Volkonovski is too strong/big for Cejudo
