Who is fighting in UFC 238?

Marlon Moraes is coming into this fight hungry for the prize, however: The Brazilian mixed martial artist is a relative newcomer to the UFC, but has already soared to the top-ranked spot on the UFC bantamweight roster. Having earned this title shot, Moraes is understandably eager to prove himself worthy, and a victory of UFC veteran Cejudo would be a huge win for the former WSOF champion.

The second big fight on the main card is another high-stakes title bout, with women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko defending her belt against challenger Jessica Eye. The USSR-born Shevchenko has been incredibly dominant in her division and is heavily favored to win, but at number one in the flyweight rankings, the “Evil” Eye is a worthy contender and might be the one to dethrone the champ – and in doing so, she’ll claim her first UFC title win.

UFC 238 picks and predictions

Marlon Moraes (22-5), is champing at the bit for this fight, having declared that he doesn’t care for Cejudo and that the American’s win over Dillashaw was a bit of a “fluke” (a few others have echoed this sentiment, stating that the fight was ended prematurely). That bout was still an impressive display by Cejudo, who is noted for a strong grappling game thanks to his Olympic wrestling history.

Henry Cejudo may have an advantage if things go to the ground, but he has also flaunted improved striking in recent fights. Moraes, for the most part, is a strong striker, but the Brazilian also has a very sound ground defense and has scored six submission victories on the mat alone. This is going to be a close matchup between two technical and balanced fighters, but we’re predicting a knockout by Marlon Moraes due to his more polished striking capabilities and the simple fact that, given that the stakes are arguably higher for him, the Brazilian is hungrier for a win.
