There’s a new money team in town, according to UFC two-division champ Henry Cejudo and top UFC welterweight contender Kelvin Gastelum.
Speaking in a recent video log, Cejudo and Gastelum called out none other than Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather Jr., instructing both men to ‘bend the knee’ to ‘NMT’ — the UFC’s ‘New Money Team’ featuring ‘Triple C’ and ‘KG’.
“So here we are, team ‘Triple C’ and team ‘KG’, we’re out here taking over,” Cejudo said (via BJ Penn). “Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather, all you wannabe kingpins, you guys can all do me a favor, and bend the knee to Triple C and KG too.”
“You’re talking to the ‘NMT: the New Money Team,” Gastelum added.
Cejudo, who has been aptly labelled ‘The King of Cringe’, has also called out the likes of Amanda Nunes, Weili Zhang and Valentina Shevchenko, telling each woman that they, too, can bend the knee to Triple C.
The reigning UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion is currently injured and expected to be out of action till next year.
Gastelum, on the other hand, is gearing up to face former welterweight title challenger Darren Till at UFC 244. The highly anticipated PPV, which features a headlining welterweight bout between Jorge Masvidal and Nate Diaz, takes place later this year, Nov. 2 at Madison Square Garden, New York.
