However, at Saturday's post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White claimed that flyweight isn't going anywhere.
Cejudo had to make key adjustments to come from behind and put himself into a position to win. "I want to start making heavyweight money". She made her UFC flyweight debut in February 2018, defeating Priscila Cachoeira by second-round submission in a dominant performance. Shevchenko previously defeated Jedrzejczyk in their three amateur Muay Thai fights prior to joining the UFC, and she beat her once again in the Octagon by unanimous decision.
Cejudo started the third round, fast, landing a straight cross to the head of Moraes before clinching up and pressing his opponent against the cage.
ESPN+ is now the sole provider of UFC and you will not only need an ESPN Plus subscription but you will need to buy the PPV event separately. For full results from UFC 238: Cejudo vs. Moraes, check out our live results page. The belt is without an owner after T.J. Dillashaw was suspended two years by the USADA. Not only is it down to about 12 fighters, but the reigning champion Cejudo seems to have no plans to defend his flyweight belt.
Cejudo called out former two-time bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, former bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt, and former featherweight world title-holder Urijah Faber before announcing that he'd also like to move up to featherweight at some point. Though it will be a close matchup between these two technical fighters, there is a good chance that Moraes will take down Cejudo in this battle. With a record of 22 wins and 5 losses, Moraes is a strong striker with an even stronger ground defense. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow on ESPN at 8 p.m. ET, with the five-fight main card airing on ESPN+ pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET. Current subscribers can still purchase UFC 238 for its normal price of $60.
