UFC 238 live results: Two title fights, Ferguson vs. Cerrone

Welcome to F4WOnline.com's live coverage of UFC 238: Cejudo vs. Moraes, emanating from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

The Octagon heads back to the Windy City with a stacked fight card featuring two title fights, a lightweight fight that is eagerly anticipated which could produce one of the best fights of the year, and nine total fights pitting ranked fighters against each other.

In the main event, the vacant UFC Bantamweight Championship is up for grabs as UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo looks to become a two-division champion when he takes on Marlon Moraes. Cejudo beat TJ Dillashaw in a flyweight title fight in January, and was expected to challenge Dillashaw for the 135-pound title until Dillashaw was stripped of the title due to a failed drug test. In steps Moraes to challenge for the championship, and he comes in riding a four-fight win streak in which he has finished his last three fights in the first round.

In the co-main event, the UFC Women's Flyweight Championship is on the line as champion Valentina Shevchenko defends against challenger Jessica Eye. Shevchenko defeated Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the title in December and makes her first title defense against Eye, who has won three straight fights since dropping back down to 125 pounds last year.

Also on the main card, in the most-anticipated fight of the night, Tony Ferguson looks to extend his 11-fight win streak when he takes on Donald Cerrone, fresh off a win over Al Iaquinta a little over a month ago. The winner of this fight would likely be next in line to challenge for the UFC Lightweight Championship. Other fights on the main card include a bantamweight bout between Jimmie Rivera and Petr Yan, and a heavyweight bout between Tai Tuivasa and Blagoy Ivanov.

The preliminary card is also stacked with ranked fighters, capped off with a potential title eliminator bout in the women's strawweight division as Tatiana Suarez puts her undefeated record up against Nina Ansaroff. Also, bantamweights Aljamain Sterling and Pedro Munhoz look to show their next in line at 135 pounds when they square off, and former title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz looks to get back in the win column against Alexa Grasso in women's strawweight action.

Follow along with our live coverage of the event beginning at 6:15 PM eastern time with preliminary action all the way through the main card.

We are looking for your thoughts on tonight's event, so send a thumbs up, a thumbs down or a thumbs in the middle along with a best fight and a worst fight to Dave at dave@wrestlingobserver.com.
