Henry Cejudo's return did not go as planned last night as he was defeated by Aljamain Sterling in the main event of UFC 288.

Following the bout, Cejudo was called out on Instagram by flyweight champion Brandon Moreno, who stated that he would be willing to move up a weight class.

'The Assassin Baby' said:

"@henry_cejudo don’t retire yet, please wait for me, I’m going to win my fight in July and then we can finish business, main event in Mexico City, I go to 135 lbs, f*ck belts, just you and me in the octagon."

'Triple C' appeared at the post-fight press conference following his split-decision loss and was informed of Moreno's callout. He said this:

"I guess now everybody wants a piece of me huh? I guess we'll talk about it, money talks. If the UFC wants to put it together and there's a nice little budget in for both of us. I ain't doing it in Mexico though, hell no, we can do here in America. But I'm not opposed to any of that."

Henry Cejudo was then asked to explain the nature of their falling out. He replied:

"We were friends at one point, he lived with me for a minute. I got him on The Ultimate Fighter show but that didn't plan out. We tried to pick him second, he ended up going to the other team and training with [Joseph] Benavidez. We just became un-friends, you know what I'm saying? But we were close at one point."
