    Henry Cejudo has been calling out everyone under the sun since he won a second UFC belt. Urijah Faber, Frankie Edgar, and even Valentina Shevchenko have been in Cejudo’s sights. But you haven’t heard him drop the name Joseph Benavidez at all. It just so happens that Benavidez holds a win over Cejudo, and is the top contender to the flyweight title at the moment. Joe B. wants that fight bad. Cejudo doesn’t seem to.

    When UFC president Dana White was asked about what is next for “Triple C” following the Contender Series last night, he was blunt in his assessment - defend your 125-pound belt, or else:

    “Right now, we have some things…

    I'm guessing Benavidez, call it a hunch.

    It pisses me off that Dana selectively enforces title defenses. Within a matter of a couple months he is hyping up a Brock title challenge, then tells Henry he has to defend at 125 because Joe is such a worthy challenger. I would much prefer him taking a “because I said so” attitude instead of trying to bullshit us all the time.
