Henry Cejudo on retirement plans

In a recent YouTube video, Henry Cejudo revealed that he hasn't retired yet. "If I could change everything, I probably would never come back, but now that I'm back, I got to * where I sleep," Cejudo said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

"For that reason, I cannot go out like that. So I'm here today ladies and gentlemen, taking my word back as a man, confronting you guys, you the people, you my fans, you my family, you my friends, you the haters, that I just cannot go out like this.

Guys, to say the least, it is far from over with the 'Triple C.' "

"Saturday night, was it all or nothing for me? Yeah, and I meant it – or did I really? Have I truly been a hypocrite to myself? The last time I lost two times in a row, I lost to Demetrious Johnson and I lost to Joseph Benavidez.

I went down and I created one of the biggest rampages in UFC history. Avenging my loss to Demetrious Johnson, beating T.J. Dillashaw on EPO. Taking out No. 1 contender Marlon Moraes and knocking the brakes, knocking the teeth out of Dominick Cruz".
