The deadlocked Bantamweight division will finally get some stability, as UFC Flyweight champion Henry Cejudo makes his bid to become ‘champ champ’ facing Marlon Moraes for the vacant bantamweight title.
Cejudo himself hinted this would be the case on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, stating that him and Moraes were likely to fight June 8th at UFC 238. Marlon Moraes also responded that the bout was indeed of interest by the UFC.
Dana White also spoke on ESPN+ Post Fight Show and teased that this was the targeted bout. The UFC has also now posted on their official Twitter account confirming the title fight on Wednesday.
It’s certainly set to be a thrilling match up, with Cejudo beating TJ Dillashaw by TKO, to defend his Flyweight crown and save the division, he cannot be ruled out of this fight. Marlon Moraes is on a 4 fight win streak and is the #1 ranked contender in the division.
Who do you think is going to win this fight? Can Cejudo become yet another champion in two divisions?
