UFC 238 is scheduled to take place on June 8, 2019 at the United Centre, in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. The card is turning out to be highly stacked with two title fights and many other interesting match-ups. However, another highly entertaining bout just got officially added to the event, i.e. a fight between bantamweights, Jimmie Rivera and Petr Yan.
It should be noted that while Jimmie Rivera is somewhat of a veteran when it comes to MMA and the UFC, Petr Yan is a new comer in the octagon and is considered to be an exciting prospect who is quickly rising through the ranks at bantamweight.
The highly entertaining UFC 238 fight card now already includes potentially enthralling match-ups like:
- Henry Cejudo vs. Marlon Moraes – for vacant bantamweight title
- Valentina Shevchenko (C) vs. Jessica Eye – for women’s flyweight title
- Nina Ansaroff vs. Tatiana Suarez
- Katlyn Chookagian vs. Joanne Calderwood
