This weekend, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Chicago for a fully stacked UFC 238 fight card, where featherweight Champion Henry Cejudo goes head to head with former World Series of Fighting Champion and top featherweight contender Marlon Moraes for the vacant Bantamweight title.
This is a real clash of styles, as Cejudo the Olympic calibre wrestler bids to become a two-weight champion against Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Moraes. Of all the fights on the UFC 238 fight card, this one is really tough to call for a UFC betting prediction and a lot will depend on who can impose their will and composure on the night.
Henry Cejudo has a work ethic and willingness to learn and improve like few other athletes in the sport. Since losing to Demetrious Johnson at UFC 197 and then to Joey Benavidez, the Arizona native has won has last four fights in a row, including a revenge victory over Johnson to win the featherweight strap, along with a highlight reel KO victory over TJ Dillashaw back in January.
I’ve been called a lot of nasty thing in my life, Gold Digger, Olympic Champion, UFC Champion, Hall of Famer, record breaker, 1 of 1, dream catcher, Dream snatcher, Snake killer, But never” have I been called Pound for Pound! That will all change come Jun. 8th #andnew #p4p pic.twitter.com/5VdnlKBOcr— Henry Cejudo (@HenryCejudo) June 2, 2019
Henry Cejudo Vs Marlon Moraes Betting Lines & Pick
At Betway Sportsbook, the betting lines for this match-up could not be tighter, with Henry Cejudo trading as the -100 underdog and Marlon Moraes a very dangerous -125 marginal favourite.
Marlon Moraes lost his UFC debut to Raphael Assuncao at UFC 212, but similar to Cejudo, he improved from it and gained his revenge over that perpetual contender with a ‘Performance of the Night’ guillotine choke win over his fellow Brazilian in February.
Overall, Henry Cejudo could have the most aces in his pack and he will be our UFC betting prediction at -100 with Betway. He will be very difficult for Moraes to control in the clinch and Cejudo now has real knock-out power in his hands, so he could get this done inside the five round distance.
