Henry Cejudo Returns, Fights For Title At UFC 288
Reigning UFC bantamweight champion Aljaman Sterling will return to action at UFC 288, defending against Henry Cejudo.
Aljamain Sterling broke a little fight news recently, as the reigning bantamweight champion will defend at UFC 288.
Sterling, in a video posted to his YouTube channel, revealed that former two-division titleholder Henry Cejudo will come out of retirement to challenge him.
UFC 288 is set for May 6. The card is also expected to feature former champion Charles Oliveira taking on Beneil Dariush.
Sterling has earned two title defenses, including a victory at UFC 280 over TJ Dillashaw. He was originally lined up to meet Cejudo in April at UFC 287, but the fight was delayed.
Cejudo, who has held both the UFC flyweight and bantamweight belts, is a former Olympic gold medalist. The 36-year-old walked away with belts around his waist, but has re-entered the UFC drug testing pool ahead of his return.
