Sergio Pettis Has Sights Set on Henry Cejudo, Not Demetrious Johnson, Following Latest Win
By FCF Staff
Leading up to UFC Fight Night 114, Sergio Pettis relayed he was hoping to lock up a title shot, but following his latest victory the flyweight has his sights set on Henry Cejudo.
Pettis took on fellow contender Brandon Moreno in the main event of Saturday’s card, and outscored the Mexican fighter for the decision win. After the event, Pettis had this to say, while discussing his next bout (quote via MMA Junkie):
“I’d like to fight again,” Pettis said. “I feel like me and Cejudo should go at it again.”
“He kind of pulled out two days before, and I want to still touch that face.”
Pettis and Cejudo were supposed to fight this past May, but the decorated wrestler was forced to withdraw due to a hand injury. With the win on Saturday, Pettis moved his winning streak to four. Cejudo, meanwhile, has yet to compete since he lost via decision to Joseph Benavidez in December.
Johnson, meanwhile, is scheduled to defend the 125 title against Ray Borg on September 9th.
