UFC 238, Cejudo vs. Moraes: Full results and highlights

For UFC 238, we'll be seeing the American fighter Henry Cejudo, with a record of 14 wins and 2 losses, taking on Marlon Moraes for the bantamweight title. The flyweight champion moved up in weight to challenge for gold at 135 pounds against Moraes, who had won 17 out of his previous 18 bouts. The belt is without an owner after T.J. Dillashaw was suspended two years by the USADA. But he landed big knees to Moraes' head in a Thai clinch.

But in the second round, Cejudo said he saw Moraes change.

"I feel like I'm the face of the UFC now, and I want to be paid like one", he said. Cejudo actually had the chance to come face-to-face with Cruz after the event during the post-fight show on EPSN+. From the promotion's decision to part ways with former flyweight champion and bona fide MMA legend Demetrious Johnson to its subsequent release of a slew of top flyweights, the signs have not be good.

Cejudo defeated Marlon Moraes to take home the vacant 135-pound strap.

At some point, it stops being an outlier and starts getting ridiculous.

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. "I want to start making heavyweight money".

Cejudo fought through more than his described ankle injury, of course.

Cejudo's victory meant he became only the fourth athlete - after Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier and Amanda Nunes - to hold two UFC world titles simultaneously.

And the first man to achieve that feat sent his congratulations on social media, as McGregor tweeted: "Congratulations Henry Cejudo!"

Moraes sports a 22-5-1 record in the UFC, while Cejudo is now at 14-2.

But after some adjustments between rounds, Cejudo came back in the second round by closing the distance, forcing himself into boxing range and connecting consistently with Moraes.
