On May 9, at UFC 250, José Aldo was to face champion Henry Cejudo for the organization's Bantamweight belt. Unfortunately for the challenger, his visa has expired, and he cannot leave Brazil according to Fight. In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, the American embassy could not deliver the precious sesame.
<! – ->The ghost Dominick Cruz will therefore replace him.
Bantamweight champion twice in his career and considered
one of the best in history in the category, he has not fought since
December 2016. At 35, the American has already proven in the past that long
breaks were not a problem for him. Next May 9, he will count
erase his defeat against Cody Garbrandt.

“Dear Henry Cejudo, the real king has already been told that we are fighting on May 9. We will meet over there. P.S. – Bring your friend, little Eric Albarracin (editor's note – Cejudo coach) so that I can slap you both. “ – Dominick Cruz
Former field-field, Cejudo had to return his flyweight belt last December. He remains on an impressive victory over Marlon Moraes for his fight for the bantamweight title. Absent since, Cejudo has undergone shoulder surgery. UFC 250 will therefore mark its comeback after a year of absence.
