UFC 238: Cejudo vs Moraes Preview and Predictions

Photo Credit:(The Daily Dot)

Tonight, UFC 238 comes to you live on Pay Per View from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. This card is stacked from top to bottom, including two Championship fights. The Main event is Henry Cejudo vs Marlon Moraes for the Flyweight Championship. The Co-main event is for the Women's Flyweight Championship as Valentina Shevchenko defends her title against Jessica Eye. On top of the two title fights we have one of the most anticipated matchups as Tony Ferguson goes up against Donald Cerrone.

While the two Championship fights should be great, the one I am most looking forward to is Ferguson vs Cerrone. These two are incredible and it should be an all out war. Cerrone is undefeated since becoming a dad and is on a three fight win streak. As for Tony Ferguson, he is on a 11 fight win streak. Ferguson, also won the Lightweight Title after he beat Kevin Lee back at UFC 216. He had the belt taken from him after he was unable to defend it due to an injury. That title is now held by Khabib Nurmagomedov however, he is suspended until UFC 242 where he will take on the interim Champion Dustin Poirier. The Lightweight division is all over the place right now as you can see. This fight between Cerrone and Ferguson will decide who will get the next title shot after UFC 242.

I am super excited for this card as it should be a great one. Check out my predictions for each fight below:
