Two of the UFC’s most popular action heroes will meet at United Center in Chicago on June 8, as Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone makes a quick turnaround to welcome former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson back to the Octagon on a stacked UFC 238 card.
In a championship doubleheader that headlines the pay-per-view event, UFC flyweight champion Henry Cejudo faces Marlon Moraes for the vacant UFC bantamweight title, and Valentina Shevchenko defends her UFC women’s flyweight title against Jessica Eye.
Fresh from a May 4, win over Al Iaquinta that extended his UFC records for most wins and most post-fight bonuses, the No. 4-ranked Cerrone has his sights set on a shot at the 155-pound crown, and a good way to get there is by beating the No. 2-ranked Ferguson. Back in action for the first time since an October stoppage of Anthony Pettis that extended his current winning streak to 11, Ferguson is coming back determined to beat Cerrone and earn his own shot at the belt.
