The ongoing feud between UFC bantamweight star “Sugar” Sean O’Malley and Henry Cejudo appears to have reached another crescendo. O’Malley has now taken to his official Twitter account to offer a fight proposal and date for ‘Triple C’.
O’Malley posted a tweet in which he suggested he would like to fight Cejudo on September 10, when the UFC 279 event is scheduled to take place. Additionally, ‘Sugar’ once again poked fun at the former UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion’s weight, calling Cejudo a ‘big a**’. O’Malley’s tweet reads:
“September 10 see you soon big a** or you all talk @henry. Can’t find her twitter tag someone please”
Moreover, Sean O’Malley also posted a message on his Instagram Stories mocking Henry Cejudo’s height. You can check out a screenshot of the same below:
Sean O’Malley’s most recent fight was a bantamweight bout against Pedro Munhoz at UFC 276 on July 2. The fight ended in an NC (No Contest) after a peep made Munhoz unable to continue.
Meanwhile, Henry Cejudo’s last fight saw him defend the UFC bantamweight title with a second-round TKO victory over Dominick Cruz in May 2020. Cejudo announced his retirement after his fight against Cruz and called off the title.
Nonetheless, “Triple C” rejoined the USADA test group earlier this year and is expected to return to the octagon sooner rather than later. Neither O’Malley’s nor Cejudo’s respective next opponents nor exact return dates have been officially announced at this time.

After his fight against Munhoz, Sean O’Malley had a backstage interview which was interrupted by Henry Cejudo. While Cejudo was escorted away before things got out of hand, he managed to slip a few verbal jabs at “Sugar” during their backstage confrontation. Challenging O’Malley, 27, in combat, Cejudo, 35, said:
“I would love a tune-up. What are you saying, precious? When would you like to bend the knee and at what time because I think you are absolutely shitty.”

Not one to be outdone, O’Malley then chimed in on “Triple C” during the event’s post-fight press conference. Stating that Cejudo was drunk and possibly on drugs, O’Malley opined that the Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist was likely having a midlife crisis. “Sugar” said:
“This little fata** should stay retired. Runs around drunk backstage, got escorted, trips over things, bumps into things. Looks like he’s on drugs, he looks big. I don’t know if he’s having a midlife crisis or what.”
