UFC 238: Cejudo vs. Moraes is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will be held on June 8, 2019 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

The event is expected to be headlined by a UFC Bantamweight Championship bout for the vacant title between 2008 Olympic gold medalist in freestyle wrestling and current UFC Flyweight Champion Henry Cejudo and former WSOF Bantamweight Champion Marlon Moraes. Two-time champion T.J. Dillashaw was suspended on March 20 due to a failed drug test in relation to his January loss against Cejudo for the flyweight title and therefore decided to vacate his title.

A UFC Women's Flyweight Championship bout between the current champion Valentina Shevchenko and Jessica Eye has been scheduled to take place at the event.

A strawweight bout between Felice Herrig and Xiaonan Yan was scheduled for the event. However, it was reported on April 30 that Herrig withdrew from the event after suffering a torn ACL and has been replaced by Angela Hill.
