UFC 292: Henry Cejudo Will Face Marlon Vera On August 19th

Dana White confirmed the comeback of Henry Cejudo, the former bantamweight champion, who aims to reclaim his throne against Marlon Vera at UFC 292 in Boston on August 19th, 2023.

The electrifying main event will feature bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling, who will facing off against the fan-favorite Sean O’Malley, while Zhang Weili looks to defend her strawweight championship against the formidable Amanda Lemos in a co-main event clash. 

In May, Henry Cejudo (16-3) ended his three-year hiatus by making a determined return in the main event of UFC 288 against Sterling, with hopes of reclaiming the bantamweight title he never lost.

In a fiercely contested match, ‘Triple C’ narrowly fell short, losing in a split decision to the impressive ‘Funkmaster’.

This time around he faces Vera (20-8-1), who is known for his explosive style.

During his impressive four-fight winning streak, Vera delivered memorable victories over Dominick Cruz, Rob Font, Frankie Edgar, and Davey Grant.

The latter, though, is eager to bounce back from his recent loss to Cory Sandhagen at UFC San Antonio.

The full lineup for UFC 292 promises an unforgettable night of fights.
