“I’m in this game for 100-percent money. I’m in this to make money, I’m not in this for another championship. I’ve accomplished everything I’ve wanted to accomplish. There’s only one thing missing: A whole bunch of zeroes behind me competing and entertaining a bunch of people. I want to fight the best but if the number doesn’t equal out to what I feel like I’m gonna get paid, then I’m out, they can keep both belts.”

Cejudo should be careful with his words. His divisions aren't a priority business for the UFC.

This never ends well for fighters, you don’t want to get on Dana’s bad side.

He's old, look his shoulder, falling apart.  Get a couple money fights while you can

goldenboyart - Good bye Cejudo. No one will miss you.

Except for fans who enjoy MMA. Speak for yourself.

Yeah I’d also kinda miss the fucker. He certainly entertains me. It’s not like he’ll disappear tho. If it’s money he’s looking for, he’ll have to make it somewhere. If he left, we’d still see him fight - just under a different promotion.

I do think the UFC is still the place to be if the money is right, but I get plenty of enjoyment out of other promotions. I’ll still watch him fight somewhere else. It’s not like we as fans have to pick a single promotion to watch.

He’s prolly just tryna play ball tho. It’s unlikely to work, but he’s trying.

 I hope Cejudo likes Singapore. One is his only other realistic option to make comparable or more money. He'd probably need a new manager to fight for them though.

This. Great character and his last two fights have been a lot of fun. Plus he's got two belts and wins over Mighty Mouse and juicy TJ.  Pay the man

When will these tiny guys learn? Some of them are excellently skilled but they aren't huge draws. Huge draw = huge leverage = huge pay.

UFC will just do Joe Benavidez vs. Kai Kara France on that card with Dan Hooker.

Petr Yan vs Edgar/Sandhagen/Aldo

If he's unhappy with what the UFC is paying him, he won't get half that elsewhere. He's not a very popular fighter, and he's in the least popular divisions in MMA. Women's 135 is more popular.

Yeah no shit, if he's worried about ufc is paying him he should invest some money into hiring some people to get his name out there like some other fighters have done. 

Not just go off and bitch about it, it never ends well.
