UFC Top Fighter Is Broke After Retirement

Sean O’Malley has started a rumor concerning former two-division champion Henry Cejudo, stating that he’s broke and desperate to unretire.



“I heard from someone close to Henry that he’s got like $37 in the bank and he’s literally just trying to do anything to get some money and trying to book a fight,” O’Malley said on The MMA Hour.

O’Malley brought up these alleged money issues again later in the interview, when discussing T.J. Dillashaw fighting at the same card with a badly injured shoulder.

“I don’t know why (Dillashaw) would go into a fight that high level and fight for a title, when you’re that compromised. Unless you’re hurting like Henry, and you need some extra cheddar. That’s the only thing I could think of. I like TJ, I don’t mind the guy, but I don’t understand why you’re going through with that fight.”

“I don’t know, Henry’s like opening main card, co-main event kind of a dude. Even if him and Aljo go fight it’ll be some co-main event on some card,” O’Malley said. “It’s just hard to say. I feel like every time we talk about this guy, it’s like is he actually coming back? I don’t know, I don’t really put much thought into that.

“I can’t imagine them wanting that Aljo vs Henry — like does anybody really want that? I don’t really see (UFC) being like ‘oh we want this,’” O’Malley said. “I really am the money fight, as far as if we’re trying to sell pay-per-views. I’ll obviously do five times whatever Henry would do.”

According to O’Malley he will also need to sit down with the UFC and get a new deal before anything else.

I want to sit down and renegotiate my contract too because I’ve been in a lot of big pay-per-views. I know where I stand as far as selling pay-per-views,” O’Malley said. “Some people, I get it, I understand why they’re not getting pay-per-view points, but I should be.”
