UFC 238 is all set to go down from inside United Center this Saturday night (June 8, 2019) and will feature a Bantamweight title fight between current Flyweight champion, Henry Cejudo, taking on Marlon Moraes for the vacant 135-pound strap.
Henry is looking to become the promotion’s next champ-champ, while Moraes eyes his first-ever taste of UFC gold after making his presence known in the division after coming over from World Series of Fighting (WSOF).
In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko will defend her Flyweight strap against No. 1 contender Jessica Eye. Also, the “Peoples Main Event” will see Donald Cerrone face off against former interim 155-pound champion Tony Ferguson in a highly-anticipated lightweight bout.
