Henry Cejudo didn’t take pleasure in watching Sean Strickland vs. Paulo Costa at UFC 302.

Strickland defeated Costa by split decision on this previous Saturday’s co-main occasion at Prudential Heart in Newark, N.J. – a scorecard which confused the likes of Dana White, who thought it should’ve been unanimous for Strickland. The UFC boss admitted it wasn’t the combat he anticipated.

Strickland (29-6 MMA, 16-6 UFC) promised a struggle and put the blame on Costa (14-4 MMA, 6-4 UFC) for not participating sufficient. Cejudo needed to see extra warmth from the 2.

“This combat disenchanted lots of people,” Cejudo mentioned on his “Pound 4 Pound” podcast with Kamaru Usman. “I wasn’t anticipating that. They have been simply too pleasant, man. It’s nearly higher to have a bit little bit of animosity. They have been simply attempting to be homies, attempting to be buddies.

“There’s an excessive amount of respect in there contained in the cage, as a result of no person needed to essentially lose to one another as a result of they’re each trolls, that the combat simply ended up – the final 17 seconds of that combat is what gave the roar, however aside from that, the combat was a snoozefest. I don’t know the way else to say it.”

Cejudo’s co-host, Usman, gave Strickland and Costa the good thing about the doubt.

“I do know Dana was upset with it, however on the similar time, how will you be? These rounds – Spherical 3, Rounds 1 by way of 4 – have been comparatively back-and-forth, form of complicated,” Usman mentioned. “, Sean was form of throwing out extra strikes, however Paulo Costa, when he stood his floor, would land strikes that appeared to be a bit more practical. I don’t know. It was only a bizarre combat.”
