On Saturday, UFC flyweight champion Henry Cejudo will have a chance to become a double-champion when he faces Marlon Moraes for the vacant bantamweight title at UFC 238 in Chicago.

Cejudo has the opportunity to join the elite class of double-champions, because of his surprising victory over Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 in August of 2018.

Going into the fight, Johnson was in the midst of his UFC record 11 consecutive title-defenses. Cejudo would make sure the streak stayed at 11.

Fight Night Analysis from Cole Henry:

They have to fight a third time and that’s for sure. That was an absolutely incredible fight from start to finish. Cejudo had the ankle problems in the beginning and came back and won. Demetrious Johnson successfully defended his flyweight Championship 11 times and Henry Cejudo just ended the streak. Seeing Johnson lose was one of the most surreal things I have ever seen. I still have chills.
