UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling once again showed his grit and resolve as he outpointed returning former two-division champion Henry Cejudo at UFC 288.
His nickname might be “Remember the Name,” but Belal Muhammad’s performance in the co-main event of UFC 288 shouted to the rooftops for people to put some respect on his name as he earned himself a shot at the UFC welterweight title.
The battle for the undisputed UFC bantamweight championship of the world is officially on after champion Aljamain Sterling and challenger Henry Cejudo both made weight for the matchup on Friday.
He’s been away from the cage for three years, but Henry Cejudo looked like he hadn’t missed a day as he took to the stage for the UFC 288 press conference and eased straight back into his “King of Cringe” pre-fight persona.
UFC 288 got a big-time addition with the booking of a huge welterweight clash, with Gilbert Burns and Belal Muhammad agreeing to face off in a five-round co-main event bout that looks set to crown the next number-one contender in the 170-pound division.
