Former two-division champion Henry Cejudo has not given up his dream to become a champ again. In fact, he still aims to be the first triple-champion in UFC history.

“My goal, and you guys are probably gonna give me a lot of shit for this: The goal is still 145 pounds,” Cejudo said during Wednesday’s UFC 298 media day. “I’ve already defended my 135-pound title. Yeah, I lost my last fight by split decision, but I’m not wavering from the goal of going up. I just feel like a win over Merab.”

“I want whoever has that belt at 145 pounds. I feel like I’ve earned it.”

Henry Cejudo: “This is all or nothing”

At age 38, Henry Ceujdo is a Olympic gold medalist and a two-division UFC champion with pretty much has nothing left to prove. If he doesn’t get the win on Saturday we will hang up his gloves for good.

“This is all or nothing,” Cejudo said. “I sat with the team, and I was like, ‘It’s either gold or bust.’ I either win it all, or I’m not going to have it at all and I’m out. I’m done.”

“It’s big time pressure. Because I know I’ve got to fight. You’ve got to put these clauses on you. I’m not going to continue to fight just to fight. I’m too competitive. I want to be the best in the world. I want that belt, and I really want that other one [at featherweight]. That’s kind of where I’m at.”
