Cejudo : ‘I’m a legend killer’
Asked why he called out the likes of Cruz and Faber rather than a more deserving contender such as, say, Aljamain Sterling, Cejudo said he is on a ‘legend rampage’ and wants to become known as ‘a legend killer.’
“Because those are legends,” Cejudo said when explaining why he called out Cruz, Faber and Garbrandt in his UFC 238 post-fight interview (h/t Damon Martin of MMA Fighting). “I want big fights. I’m on a legend rampage. That’s what I want. I’m a legend killer. I want big fights.
“Dominick Cruz, you guys wouldn’t like Dominick Cruz versus Henry Cejudo? Doesn’t that sound exciting?”
