Henry Cejudo tried his ‘bend the knee’ shtick on Kayla Harrison but came up short

Henry Cejudo calls himself “Triple C” — as in “three championships” — because he recently captured a pair of UFC titles to complement his Olympic gold medal in wrestling, secured at the 2008 summer games in Beijing.

His flyweight title, however, will be relinquished on Feb. 29.

With nothing to do but sit around and think of new ways to annoy everyone on social media, thanks to shoulder surgery that sidelined the former “Messenger” for nearly a year, Cejudo has been going after champions in all weight classes (and genders), instructing them to “bend the knee” to the king of kings.

It appears he came up short in his latest attempt.

Cejudo (15-2) hasn’t competed since torching Marlon Moraes at UFC 239 last June in Chicago. Harrison (7-0), who recently signed a record-breaking contract with PFL, competed three times during his absence and racked up two finishes along the way.

Maybe it’s time to crown a double-gender champ?

And while we’re on the topic of little shorties, can we stop pretending Too Short is the greatest mini-rapper of all time and get some more love for Shorty Shit Stain?

Compare and contrast.

That is all.
