The UFC has booked the main event for the upcoming UFC 238 card in addition to the main event for an upcoming Fight Night event. Below are my thoughts on both of these bouts.
Marlon Moraes vs. Henry Cejudo, UFC 238 The vacant UFC bantamweight title will probably be up for grabs if Marlon Moraes takes on Henry Cejudo in the primary event of UFC 238, which is set for June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The bout official has been made by the advertising.
Moraes (22-5-1) is the former WSOF bantamweight champion and he has appeared incredible since linking the UFC, going 4-1 overall from the Octagon including three successive first-round finishes over Raphael Assuncao, Jimmie Rivera and Aljamain Sterling in his last three fights. Most wanted to see Moraes receive a title shot against former champion TJ Dillashaw, however if the champ examined positive and gave his belt up it supposed the UFC has to obtain a new opponent for him.
Cejudo (14-2) is your UFC flyweight champion and he got the call to struggle to the bantamweight belt against Moraes following the Dillashaw fight fell through. Cejudo is 8-2 overall in the UFC and is now riding a four-fight win streak that includes back-to-back wins over Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson. He’s obviously the best flyweight on the planet, and it will be intriguing to see if he can proceed around bantamweight and become a rare double winner in his new branch.
MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas has already released the starting line for this bout. Moraes started as a -185 favorite, with Cejudo as a +145 underdog. Click the hyperlink to read more of Kalikas’ reason for why he opened the line how he did.
Tyron Woodley vs. Robbie Lawler UFC on ESPN 4, 2 Former UFC welterweight winners Tyron Woodley and Robbie Lawler will rematch in the primary event of UFC on ESPN 4, which takes place June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. ESPN broke the news. This is a rematch of this pair’s previous meeting at UFC 201 at July 2016, when Woodley took the belt out of Lawler after viciously knocking him out in the initial round.
Woodley (19-4-1) is 9-3-1 total at the UFC and is coming from a decisive five-round decision reduction to Kamaru Usman that watched him drop his belt. Before this Usman struggle, Woodley was on a seven-fight unbeaten streak and he will look to get back on the horse using a second triumph over Lawler. If he would like to have any chance of remaining in the title picture in 170lbs, he absolutely needs to win this battle.
Lawler (28-13, 1 NC) is 13-8 all time in the UFC but has fallen on hard times as of late since he’s dropped three of his final four bouts, such as a contentious submission loss to Ben Askren in her final fight. Most figured the UFC would book a rematch between Lawler and Askren, but they decided to reserve a rematch with Woodley rather than Much like Woodley, if Lawler has any hopes of getting back his belt afterward he absolutely must win this fight.
The opening lineup for this particular bout has not been released yet, but it’s safe to say that Woodley is going to be the favorite this time around considering he knocked Lawler out in the first round the last time these two met inside the Octagon.
