Henry Cejudo vs Marlon Moraes

 Henry Cejudo vs Marlon Moraes 
United Center, Bantamweight 
3:00 AM Saturday, in UK


The king of the bantamweight category has been vacant since March after TJ Dillashaw failed to test the ban. Dillashaw was found to be positive for banned substances and was banned for 2 years. Immediately, this weight class championship became "bait" for the top boxers to fight. In the "royal battle", Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes were the ones chosen by the UFC to compete for the title.
Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes are excellent martial artists at the current rank of bantamweight. Cejudo (14-2) is the champion of the flyweight class. He had 4 consecutive victories. The last time, Cejudo defeated TJ Dillashaw himself to protect his title. Now, Dillashaw is banned from playing, so Cejudo decides to challenge himself in a new weight class in hopes of becoming the UFC's two-weight champion.
Meanwhile, Cejudo's rival Moraes did not fit. Moraes lost only one match in his last 18 matches. It was a defeat against Raphael Assuncao right in his UFC debut. Shortly after, Moraes had four consecutive victories including winning the rematch with Assuncao.
The upcoming belt battle promises to be worth watching when Cejudo is a master of things. Meanwhile, Moraes has the opposite style and is considered one of the best Muay Thai boxers.
Cejudo is very confident in his abilities, but remember that Moraes is not easy to eat when he hits the fire more and more. If standing, Cejudo will most likely not be able to win against Moraes so it is possible that the battlefield combined with the storm attack will be Cejudo's first choice. Looking back at Cejudo's battle with Dillashaw before, Cejudo showed his amazing ability to attack when overwhelming from the beginning. Just let the opponent fall to the floor, Cejudo easily rushed up and "pounded" the opponent to shatter.
 
However, it is not enough to defeat Moraes. Moraes is a martial artist with speed and strength and intelligence in combat. He often taps his opponents into traps to take advantage of. Not only good at Muay Thai. Moraes also has the ability to not fight the war. The best proof for this is winning his submission in the first half in the rematch against Assuncao last February.

The next match promises to be very interesting and worth watching. The comprehensiveness of Moraes' strength and skills will be a real challenge on the path to becoming the two -weighted champion of Henry Cejudo. This match will take place at the UFC 238 event on June 8.
