Jose Aldo answers “midget” Henry Cejudo in savage callout
Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo made his bantamweight debut last Sunday but didn’t pick up the win against Marlon Moraes. After three rounds, two judges had it for “Magic” Moraes while the third one had it Aldo. https://tvsport.se
It does not seem to matter for neither the UFC President Dana White or the bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo though, and Aldo is now on the fast track to a crack at the title.
Everything started with a phone call between the UFC president and “Triple C” Cejudo where the bantamweight king made it clear that he thought Aldo won the fight and should be treated that way.
Cejudo later made a viral video where he called out Aldo and challenged to fight him in Brazil, claiming he was the “King of Rio”
Now, Aldo has made his own video in response, and apparently Aldo is done being Mr. Nice. Not only it’s the video full of guns, Aldo also refers to Cejudo as “Snow White’s Security Guard” and urges the bantamweight champion to sign the contract:
“I am the King of Rio and you are Snow White’s Security Guard! Sign the Contract and let’s get it right,” Jose Aldo wrote on Twitter

Henry Cejudo vs. Jose Aldo?
Cejudo is currently rehabilitating a shoulder injury that has kept him from competition since June 2018. The 32-year-old American is on a five-bout win streak and captured the flyweight title by defeating Demetrious Johnson in Aug. 2018.
He later defended it against T.J. Dillashaw in a 32 second victory, and then fought Moraes for the vacant bantamweight championship after Dillashaw tested positive for the performance-enhancing drug EPO.
33-year-old Aldo has had a fall from grace since his 2015 title loss against Conor McGregor. The Brazilian got finished in just 13 seconds, ending a undefeated streak that spanned nine years.
Aldo has 3-5 in his last eight bouts and is currently on a two-loss skid. Should he be able to defeat Cejudo, Aldo could be looking at a new and exciting chapter in his career.
