A former UFC star claims to be on his way to fighting retired boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. next. Retired UFC “champ champ” Henry Cejudo posted the news via social media on Friday. Cejudo, 34, told fans to stay tuned for the official announcement.
Cejudo posted, “It’s going down! The Triple C Vs The Olympic bronze medalist @floydmayweather #staytune”.

Cejudo hasn’t competed since stunningly announcing his retirement after beating former champ Dominick Cruz at UFC 249 in May 2020.
Cejudo is the only Olympic gold medalist in history to also win a world title in the UFC. He’s one of only four fighters in company history to hold two UFC championships in different divisions at the same time and one of only seven to win a title in more than one division across a career.
Mayweather, 44, is retired from boxing. As a professional, he established himself as the premier fighter of his era by winning world titles across four different weight classes. He’s sold more pay-per-views than any other prizefighter in history, and he’s never been defeated in the pro ranks.
Additionally, Mayweather won a bronze medal in boxing for the United States at the 1996 Olympics.
