The chance to strike and make history against Alexander Volkanovsky was enough for Henry Sejudo to end his career and return to active competition. According to UFC President Dana White, this scenario is unlikely to happen.

Earlier this month, promoters Volkanovsky and Max Holloway announced they would fight for the lightweight title at UFC 272, scheduled for March. However, the trilogy fight was canceled after the former champion was injured in training and forced to leave the game. The vacancies have led to several names offering to replace Halloween, including Sejudo.

Almost two years after the former two division champions announced their retirement from the sport, he hinted at a fight again. Sejudo fought his final fight in UFC 249, where he defeated Dominic Cruz in the second round by technical knockout to successfully defend his lightweight title.

Although he believed it would now be the perfect time to return, his request to meet Volkanovsky was not heard and he turned to Chan Sung Jung (Korean zombie) instead of the UFC brass. Dissatisfied with the rejection, Sejudo mocked Volkanovsky and Yung, but there is a clear reason why this was done. Talked to White BT Sportdan Adam Ketterall To explain why Seungo, not Yung, fought the champion.

“I can tell you, the Korean zombie fought here,” White said. “This guy is retired. How many years has he not worked? And does he want to go in and fight Alexander Volkanovsky? You know what I mean? You have guys like Zombies, Josh Emmett, Giga [Chikadze] who will fight this weekend. You have guys here who practice three times a year and work their way up.

“It’s not like Sejudo thinks he should retire and then go into any weight class and win the championship.”

Sejudo has already responded to White and insisted he would not be afraid to fight if he could become a three-division champion. The Olympic gold medalist also explained how his condition differed from that of former champion Michael Bisping to former UFC champion George Saint-Pierre, who returned from a break to fight and win the middleweight title. St. Pierre soon vacated the title and has not competed since.

The 35-year-old is not interested in doing what St. Pierre did and will defend all three belts if given the chance.

“I’m just the ultimate opponent and I would be the first fighter in UFC history to be a three-division champion, I know it can be done very, very much,” Sejudo said. Triple C and Schmo show. “Alexander Volkanovsky does not scare me,” he said. I literally put my name inside the hat. As soon as I found out that Max Holloway was there, I contacted Ali [Abdelaziz], and said, “Ali, do this battle, my friend.”

“I have credentials,” Sejudo continued. “I deserved it. It’s not like the GSP mode where I win and then go out. For me, it’s different because I want to go there, protect all my belts, and see how far I can take my body.

With Sejudo officially out, Volkanovsky will defend his title at UFC 273 in April.
