A fight between the UFC flyweight champion and Marlon Moraes for the vacant UFC bantamweight title will serve as the headliner of the UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) event. The title is vacant due to TJ Dillashaw voluntarily relinquishing the belt after a failed United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) drug test. Dillashaw was suspended for one year and fined $10,000 by the New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) for the failed test.
The match-up makes sense, as Cejudo is the latest fighter to beat Dillashaw while Moraes has emerged as the top challenger for the bantamweight title. Moraes is fresh off a submission win over Raphael Assuncao. Cejudo finished Dillashaw to successfully retain the UFC flyweight title in the headliner of UFC on ESPN+ 1.
The event down on January 19, 2019, at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York and marked his latest fight.
Cejudo Is Looking Shredded
Cejudo is ready to go as he took to his official Instagram account where he showed off the great shape that he’s in, sharing this:
UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko will make her next title defense against Jessica Eye in the co-headliner. The UFC 238 PPV event is set to take place on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
