Former dual UFC champion Henry Cejudo will return to the octagon on August 19 at UFC 292 in Boston against Ecuadorian Marlon Vera.
The organization of the bantamweight bout in an interview with ESPN was announced by UFC President Dana White, thereby confirming the information voiced last week by informed sources.
In May of this year, 36-year-old Henry Cejudo resumed his career after a three-year break, failing to take the championship belt from Aljamain Sterling, to whom he lost a split decision after five rounds.
Marlon Vera, 30, snapped a four-fight streak in March, losing a split decision to Corey Sandhagen in five rounds.
Currently, Henry Cejudo and Marlon Vera are ranked third and sixth in the UFC bantamweight division, respectively.
Recall that the main event of the numbered event will be a bantamweight title fight between Aljamain Sterling and Sean O’Malley.
