The UFC has reserved the principal event for the upcoming UFC 238 card as well as the main event for an upcoming Fight Night occasion. Below are my thoughts on both these newly-announced bouts.
UFC 238 vs. Henry Cejudo, marlon Moraes The empty UFC bantamweight title will be up for grabs when Marlon Moraes takes on Henry Cejudo at the main event of UFC 238, which can be set for June 8 at United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The bout official has been made by the promotion.
Moraes (22-5-1) is the prior WSOF bantamweight champion and he’s looked incredible since linking the UFC, going 4-1 overall from the Octagon including three consecutive first-round finishes over Raphael Assuncao, Jimmie Rivera and Aljamain Sterling in his last 3 fights. Most wanted to see Moraes get a title shot against former winner TJ Dillashaw, but if the champ tested positive and gave his belt up it supposed the UFC has to obtain a new competitor for him.
Cejudo (14-2) is your UFC flyweight champion and he got the call to fight to the bantamweight belt here against Moraes following the Dillashaw fight fell through. Cejudo is 8-2 overall in the UFC and is currently riding a four-fight win streak that includes back-to-back wins over Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson. He is clearly the ideal flyweight in the world, and it’s going to be interesting to see whether he can proceed around bantamweight and eventually become a rare double champion in his new division.
MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas has released the opening line for this bout. Moraes started as a -185 favored, with Cejudo as a +145 underdog. Click on the hyperlink to see more of Kalikas’ rationale for why he started 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 main event of UFC on ESPN 4, which takes place June 29 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The news broke. That is a rematch of this pair’s previous assembly at UFC 201 at July 2016, when Woodley took the belt out of Lawler after brutally knocking him out in the first round.
Woodley (19-4-1) is 9-3-1 total in the UFC and is coming from a decisive five-round decision reduction to Kamaru Usman that saw him fall 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 wants to have any chance of staying at the title picture in 170lbs, he absolutely must 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 the last four bouts, including a controversial entry loss to Ben Askren in her last struggle. Most guessed the UFC would book a rematch between Lawler and Askren, but they decided to book a rematch with Woodley instead. Much like Woodley, if Lawler has any hopes of ever getting back his belt afterward he absolutely needs to win this fight.
The opening lineup for this particular bout has not been released yet, but it is safe to say that Woodley will be the favorite this time around considering he knocked Lawler out at the first round the last time these two met inside the Octagon.
