On Saturday night, Henry Cejudo attempted to reclaim the UFC’s bantamweight belt almost exactly 3 years after the last time he defended the belt.
In his return fight, Cejudo came up just short against Aljamain Sterling, losing a split decision.
After the loss, another former UFC champion took to Twitter to give his thoughts on Cejudo’s performance.
Conor McGregor posted a tweet that he has since deleted to congratulate Sterling and take a shot at Cejudo’s performance and resume as a whole.
He also shared a video calling out the performance from Cejudo.

Cejudo was asked about McGregor’s comments during the post-fight press conference and responded by saying that McGregor didn’t have anything on his resume.
Yesterday, he got a bit more heated with his response to McGregor.
Henry Cejudo posted a tweet saying the the only cardio McGregor does anymore is running from USADA.
The only cardio @TheNotoriousMMA is doing these days is running from USADA.

Despite the fact that he is a coach on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter and is expected to fight Michael Chandler at some point following the conclusion of the season, Conor McGregor has still not rejoined the USADA testing pool.
His reluctance to rejoin the testing pool coupled with his change in physique since the last time he stepped in the cage have created quite a bit of speculation about McGregor.
With a 6-month waiting period after rejoining the testing pool and the airing of the new season of The Ultimate Fighter, you have to wonder when he will actually begin getting tested again.
For now, fans will just have to settle for him talking trash after every major UFC event despite the fact he hasn’t won a fight in 3 years.
