UFC 238 live stream Cejudo v Moraes & Shevchenko v Eye maincard updates – MMA Mania
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.
Both of the previously mentioned fights should be highly entertaining and, perhaps, are worth the money to be allowed beyond the ESPN+ PPV paywall. However, fight fans at-large are far more excited for what UFC is dubbing “The People’s Main Event” — former interim Lightweight champion, Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson, stepping into the eight-sided cage against fan favorite and UFC post-fight bonus record holder, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. It is truly a shame that this bout is only scheduled for three rounds.
Even the first two fights on UFC 238’s PPV main card and the “Prelims” undercard are expected to produce a high level of technique accompanied by the perfect amount of violence. Highly touted prospects, including but not limited to, Petr Yan, Tai Tuivasa, Tatiana Suarez, and Aljamain Sterling bolster this portion of UFC 238’s underbelly.
However exciting this fight card might be on paper, it is understandable if you can’t (or won’t) shell out the necessary monetary amount in exchange for the privilege of watching an official broadcast of the event. Luckily, I’ve already purchased the PPV and with it will be attempting to provide you with the best possible “radio style” play-by-play broadcast imaginable. My delivery might be more cringeworthy than Cejudo’s social media presence as of late, but during the entire main card I will be doing my best to keep fight fans up-to-date on the moment-to-moment action happening inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Here’s what’s in store for the UFC 238 main card:
135 lbs.: Henry Cejudo vs. Marlon Moraes
125 lbs.: Valentina Shevchenko vs. Jessica Eye
155 lbs.: Tony Ferguson vs. Donald Cerrone
135 lbs.: Jimmie Rivera vs. Petr Yan
265 lbs.: Tai Tuivasa vs. Blagoy Ivanov
