A key flyweight bout between rising contenders Henry Cejudo and Jussier Formiga is the latest addition to November’s UFC Fight Night 78 event in Mexico.
UFC officials announced the booking yesterday evening.
Former Olympic wrestling gold medal winner, Henry Cejudo (9-0 MMA), will be looking to stretch his undefeated mixed martial arts record to 10-0 by scoring a win over Formiga this fall. “The Messenger” was last seen in action at June’s UFC 188 event, where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Chico Camus.
Meanwhile, Jussier Formiga (18-3 MMA) will be looking to extend his current win streak to four in a row when he squares off with Cejudo in Mexico. The Nova Uniao product was most recently seen in action at May’s UFC Fight Night 67 event, where he earned a unanimous decision win over Wilson Reis.
UFC Fight Night 78 takes place November 21 live from Monterrey Arena in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. The event is headlined by a welterweight bout between fan favorites Matt Brown and Kelvin Gastelum.
