By FCF Staff
Here are the results from UFC 238, which took place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
In the main event, flyweight champion Henry Cejudo had a rough start against bantamweight contender Marlon Moraes. But the Olympic Gold Medal wrestler proceeded to win the 135 title, by stopping the latter with ground-and-pound strikes in round three.
In the co-main event, flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko defended her title by knocking Jessica Eye out with a vicious head kick in round two. The card also saw former interim lightweight champ Tony Ferguson record a TKO win over rugged vet, Donald Cerrone. The latter absorbed several punishing shots in round two, and after blowing his nose in between rounds, his right eye swelled shut and the fight was stopped.
