The next Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) pay-per-view offering will go down on Saturday June 8, 2019, as UFC 238 is set to go down from inside United Center in Chicago, Ill., featuring a Bantamweight title fight between current Flyweight champion, Henry Cejudo, taking on Marlon Moraes for the vacant 135-pound strap.
The fight came to be after former division champion, Dillashaw, coughed up his strap and was subsequently suspended for a period of two years for failing multiple United States Anti Doping Agency (USADA)-administered drug tests.
In UFC 238’s co-main event, current women’s Flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will defend her title for the first time against top contender Jessica Eye. More recently, the promotion opted to bolster up the fight card, adding a highly-intriguing Lightweight matchup that will see the streaking Donald Cerrone take on former interim division king, Tony Ferguson, in the appropriately-dubbed “People’s Main Event.”
Ferguson has been sitting on the sidelines tending to personal issues, while “Cowboy” has been tearing it up inside the Octagon, winning three straight over top contenders Mike Perry, Alexander Hernandez and more recently, Al Iaquinta. The winner of that matchup could pretty much set himself at the top of the title contender list.
A few weeks out from fight night, UFC released a couple of promotional videos to get fans pumped for the event, which will be the promotion’s third PPV offering on the ESPN+ streaming service. Moving forward, you can expect a few more videos to be dished out prior to fight night to pique your interest.
