UFC 238: Previewing the Biggest and Best Fights Set for Chicago
The UFC returns to the United Center in Chicago on June 8 with a ridiculous card.
Leading the charge will be two title fights. The vacant bantamweight championship will be up for grabs as Henry Cejudo tries to become another two-division champion when he meets Marlon Moraes, while Valentina Shevchenko defends her UFC 238 flyweight title for the first time against former world No. 1, Jessica Eye.
Helping to round out the card will be three top-five ranked matchups: Tony Ferguson vs. Donald Cerrone, Tatiana Suarez vs. Nina Ansaroff, and Aljamain Sterling vs. Pedro Munhoz.
Oh, should we also mention an additional two top-10 ranked bouts in Jimmie Rivera vs. Petr Yan and Katlyn Chookagian vs. Joanne Calderwood? And three more top-15 ranked matchups with Tai Tuivasa vs. Blagoy Ivanov, Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Alexa Grasso, and Ricardo Lamas vs. Calvin Kattar.
Only two fights of 12 scheduled contests are not between ranked fighters. That is incredible. UFC 238 may be the Event of the Year.
The MMA world is set for a big night with title implications littered throughout the card. It is a fan’s dream card.
