And the opposite factor that type of bugged me with the UFC, I acquired a name from USADA, I didn’t even speak to any of the UFC officers. So I’m kinda like woah, I believe everybody sees that I beat him in 32 seconds. However they don’t see the truth that it is a downside. Like, if somebody finally ends up dying within the Octagon certainly one of nowadays, our sport’s gonna get – they’re gonna ban it for good. They’re gonna take that one shot.”
Cejudo acquired emotional discussing the scenario, even showing to tear up at one level.
”With this entire TJ factor, it made me unhappy, if it’s all true,” he mentioned. “You’re feeling unhappy then you definately go to feeling mad, like wait, what if he’d beat you up like Brock did with Mark Hunt? Generally these items cross your head as a result of this ain’t baseball, man. If all of it comes out to be true, I’d by no means really feel snug combating somebody like that once more. I hope it was an accident, I hope one thing occurred. But when it’s true, I actually really feel dangerous for the person. I actually do. And I simply would by no means struggle him once more. I don’t look after no matter amount of cash, I’d by no means struggle him once more.”
Cejudo confirmed that the UFC was certainly going to place collectively a right away rematch at bantamweight earlier than Dillashaw examined constructive.
”Yeah that was the plan, that’s what Dana needed, that’s what we needed, that’s what TJ needed. Everybody needed the struggle. It was gonna be a fairly large payday for me. That’s one other place the place I lose somewhat bit. TJ’s a giant title, but when all of it seems to be true it’s going to tarnish his legacy for the remainder of his profession. A future Corridor of Famer may now be in query.”
”I’m nonetheless type of emotional. I hope it’s not something loopy, however that is the final interview I need to do about it as a result of it simply bugs me.”
Cejudo went on to speak about his subsequent opponent now that Dillashaw is out: Marlon Moraes, who he’ll face for the vacant 135 pound strap on June eighth in Chicago for UFC 238. And whereas he wasn’t keen to decide to going through off towards the winner of a Jussier Formiga vs. Joseph Benavidez flyweight struggle on the identical card, he sounded assured the 125 pound division was sticking round within the UFC and that he’d defend each belts.
Simply not towards TJ Dillashaw, until he manages to by some means clear his title.
