Cody Garbrandt & Henry Cejudo Trade Fiery Tweets Over Next Title Shot
By FCF Staff
Ahead of Deiveson Figueiredo’s bout with Brandon Moreno this Saturday at UFC 256, the flyweight champ has repeated his desire fo fight Cejudo. Figueiredo is coming off a submission win over Alex Perez last month, who stepped in for Garbrandt, who had to withdraw from the fight due to medical issues.
Cejudo proceeded to respond to the champ’s latest call out, and the following exchange ensued with Gabrandt.

Why do we need to wait March 6th, I gave you the date you pick the weight. I don’t give a fuck about the title, if you proclaim yourself the king then don’t be a coward. Don’t run away when you are in your prime, the biggest fights lay ahead. https://t.co/JfR3HTHSHQ

Your legacy will be written as a coward who stepped down in his prime when his biggest fights are ahead. No king steps down in his prime there is no honor in that, the self proclaimed king is weak and sensed the declined as the divisions rise, long live the coward!! https://t.co/lyogSJvT3Z
