Ryan Garcia Responds To Henry Cejudo & Dillon Danis
Cejudo, who is now retired from MMA competition, has been trying to goad Garcia into a boxing match. “Triple C” insists that he’ll make Garcia “bend the knee.” Speaking to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Garcia fired back at Cejudo (via BJPenn.com).
“The only time I’ve seen him was the fight that he had [against Dominick Cruz], when the UFC came back,” Garcia said of Cejudo. “I actually liked his hands a little bit. I wrote him a message. I was like ‘hey man, you’re pretty good, don’t retire, just keep going.’ I ended p Tweeting that and he ended up going crazy. I’m like ‘I didn’t even call you out, my guy.’ All I said was ‘yo, how would he do in a fight against me?’ cause I thought his hand were good. He took it the wrong way, so I mean, now I’m going to have to knock him out. He’s a cool dude, but I’m going to knock him out.”
Garcia went on to respond to Danis over his barbs on social media. Danis took to social media to claim he’ll show Garcia what a real fight looks like.
The 21-year-old boxing sensation responded, saying Danis is Conor McGregor’s “little dog.” Garcia said he might just be “ballsy” enough to fight Cejudo and Danis under MMA rules.
