The Henry Cejudo versus Marlon Moraes fight will determine the champion of the 135-pound UFC title. The fight will take place on June 8 and the winner will fill the vacant spot left after T.J. Dillashaw failed his USADA drug test.

The interesting thing about the fight is the fact that Cejudo will actually try to become a two division champion as he already is the UFC’s flyweight champion. His record of 14-2 is very encouraging and the fact that he knocked out former champion T.J. Dillashaw within 32 seconds of his last fight this January only reaffirms the belief that he can succeed in his quest.

However, in his way will be the top ranked bantamweight contender and Malron Moraes is not one to be fooled by Cejudo playing the good guy on a quest image. The Brazilian comes in the fight with a record of 22-5-1 and has knocked out three of his last four opponents within the first round.

Bookmakers have already come out with their predictions as to which fighter has the edge here and their odds make for an interesting reading. Moraes is the slight favourite, but this fight will definitely be the best fight this year and is expected to go all the way.

Cejudo vs Moraes Winner Odds


sportpesaIf you are planning to include the marlon moraes vs Henry Cejudo UFC fight on your betting slip as part of an accumulator bet, then SportPesa is the place where you should do this. The established sports betting provider gives all of its new clients the chance to boost their accumulator bets up to 50%.

As far as the favourite for this fight is concerned SportPesa definitely go with Marlon Moraes. They feel that Henry Cejudo might be a tad too ambitious in his 135-pound title pursuit and that Moraes will be very difficult to defeat.

This is because the Brazilian bantamweight fighter is ranked as the best in his rankings as of February this year and has defeated fighters such as Raphael Assuncao, Jimmie Rivera, and Aljamin Sterling in the first round in each of his last three fights, thus earning himself the Performance of the Night award on 3 consecutive occasions.

As a result Moraes is given odds of 20/29, which are somewhat shorter than the odds of 1/1 that SportPesa has in store for Henry Cejudo. Moraes might not be running away with the title, but he is definitely expected to win here eventually.

The betting operator offers to match your first deposit up to £30 and that money can come at a perfect time if you feel that you have some gut feeling for the Cejudo vs Moraes fight.

Backing Marlon Moraes might be the smart thing to do here, as he is given sensible odds of 8/11 to triumph over the flyweight champion, Henry Cejudo, who is given slightly higher odds of 21/20.

Moraes’ last defeat came in June 2017 and since then he has defeated some heavy hitters with amazing ease. He managed to knock out the reputable Jimmie Rivera for example, within only 33 seconds of the first round.

That might not happen when Moraes and Cejudo lock horns, but the fact remains that for many bookmakers such as Betway, Moraes is the favourite to steal the show. This is in spite of the fact that Cejudo has been pretty phenomenal himself dispatching T.J. Dillashaw with the ease of a seasoned pro.
