The UFC has booked the main event for the upcoming UFC 238 card in addition to the primary event for an upcoming Fight Night occasion. Below are my thoughts on both of these newly-announced bouts.
UFC 238 vs. Henry Cejudo, marlon Moraes The empty UFC bantamweight title will be up for grabs if Marlon Moraes takes on Henry Cejudo at the primary event of UFC 238, that 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 former WSOF bantamweight champion and he’s looked incredible since linking the UFC, going 4-1 complete in the Octagon including three successive first-round finishes over Raphael Assuncao, Jimmie Rivera and Aljamain Sterling in his last three fights. Most desired to watch Moraes get a title shot against former winner TJ Dillashaw, but when the champ examined positive and gave his belt up it supposed the UFC must find a new competitor for him.
Cejudo (14-2) is the UFC flyweight champion and he got the call to fight for 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 series that includes back-to-back wins over Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson. He is obviously the ideal flyweight on the planet, and it’s going to be intriguing to see whether he can proceed around bantamweight and become a rare double winner in his new branch.
MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas has already released the opening line for this bout. Moraes opened as a -185 favorite, with Cejudo as a +145 underdog. Click on the link to read more of Kalikas’ rationale for why he opened the line how he did.
Tyron Woodley vs. Robbie Lawler UFC on ESPN 4, 2 Former UFC welterweight champions 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. The news was broken by ESPN. This is a rematch of this pair’s previous meeting at UFC 201 at July 2016, when Woodley took the belt from Lawler after brutally knocking him out in the initial round.
Woodley (19-4-1) is 9-3-1 overall in the UFC and is coming off of a critical 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 to the horse with another win over Lawler. If he would like to have any chance of staying at the title picture at 170lbs, he absolutely needs to win this battle.
Lawler (28-13, 1 NC) is 13-8 all time from the UFC but has fallen on hard times as of late as he’s dropped three of the final four bouts, such as a controversial entry loss to Ben Askren in her last struggle. Most figured the UFC would reserve a rematch between Lawler and Askren, but they decided to reserve a rematch with Woodley instead. Like Woodley, if Lawler has any hopes of getting back his belt afterward he absolutely needs to win this fight.
The opening line for this particular bout has not been published yet, but it’s safe to say Woodley is going to be the favorite this time around believing he pumped Lawler out in the first round the last time these two met inside the Octagon.
