UFC 238 Live : Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has been giving us some decent fight cards thus far in 2019, but perhaps none have been as interesting as the pay-per-view (PPV) main card scheduled for UFC 238. The main event features a Bantamweight title fight between Flyweight champion, Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo, against surging 135-pound contender, “Magic” Marlon Moraes, for the vacant UFC Bantamweight belt. UFC 238’s co-main event also has a belt on the line — UFC women’s Flyweight champion, Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko, putting her strap on the line against a surprising challenger in Jessica “Evil” Eye.

UFC 238 takes place Saturday night with two title fights at the top of the card, as well as the “People’s Main Event,” and MMAjunkie Radio hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze” will have live streaming commentary via SportsCastr that kicks off for the main card at 10 p.m. ET.
In the main event – the actual one – the vacant bantamweight title is up for grabs as flyweight champion Henry Cejudo (14-2 MMA, 8-2 UFC) attempts to become champ-champ against top 135-pound contender Marlon Moraes (22-5-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC). And in the co-headliner, Valentina Shevchenko (16-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) defends her women’s flyweight title against Jessica Eye (14-6 MMA, 4-5 UFC). UFC 238 also features a firecracker of a lightweight fight as former interim champ Tony Ferguson (24-3 MMA, 14-1 UFC) takes on Donald Cerrone (36-11 MMA, 23-8 UFC).
