UFC star Henry Cejudo may not know exactly what it means to be retired, because the dude is busier than most people with regular 9 - 5's! The MMA and Olympic champion was seen out in NYC and talked about all the interesting ventures he's got going on, including a possible return to AEW and a foray into commercial real estate.

33-year-old Cejudo has been keeping MMA fans guessing on his next move ever since declaring himself retired following a successful defense of the UFC's bantamweight championship belt back in May.

Triple C was on a relaxing stroll with his Brazilian beauty girlfriend, Amanda Dallago Chavez, when the star was spotted by longtime cameraman and comedian, Adam Glyn.

Glyn asked Cejudo about his thoughts on UFC's "Fight Island" in Abu Dhabi, and the criticism that the main event, Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal, was pretty lackluster. Cejudo agreed and thought that the matches could have been better, and admits that he expected the Usman fight to be pretty "boring" while giving his thoughts on some bouts he'd really like to see.

Cejudo, who was rocking a Smart Cups shirt after becoming one of the company's newest ambassadors, also spoke about what it would take to get him out of retirement.

"Show me the money! I want a pile of MONEY!" Cejudo exclaimed with a big grin on his face.

He went on to explain that actually more important than a fat stack of cash would be making sure he signed on to the proper fight. The Olympian says he wants a "legacy fight" and is "looking to make my name even bigger."

Cejudo also mentioned other business opportunities, including professional wrestling and getting into the commercial real estate game.

Henry Cejudo is not the only fighting star to go into business with Smart Cups, as the Baddest Man on the Planet, Mike Tyson, is also an ambassador. Tyson has been seen wearing Smart Cups gear during his training sessions, and as we reported, the tech company is helping the champ take his cannabis empire to the next level.

According to a joint release from Tyson's company and Smart Cups, the boxer will license technology that will allow him to actually print CBD beverages with exact dosing measurements.

"The deal gives The Ranch Companies the ability to produce lines of ingestible cannabis products that will have accurate and consistent doses of cannabis. As ingestible forms of cannabis continue to grow as popular alternatives for many users who wish to avoid smoking, the cannabis industry has continued to battle the ongoing issue of accurate and consistent dosing through all ingestible cannabis products."
