Ultimate Fighting Championship is headed back to Chicago, Ill., as UFC 238 is set to go down from inside United Center on June 8, 2019. And the promotion is bringing a championship double-header to town.
In the main event of the evening, current UFC Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo will face off against Marlon Moraes for the vacant Bantamweight title left behind by TJ Dillashaw (see why here). The bout will give “The Messenger” the chance to become UFC’s next champ-champ, while Moraes has the opportunity to win his first-ever UFC world title.

In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko will defend her women’s Flyweight title for the first time against top contender, Jessica Eye. Winner of three in a row, Jessica will look to collect her first-ever world title while “Bullet” looks to hold on to the belt she won by defeating Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231.
