Cejudo (15-2-0) is making the first defense of his championship, which Cejudo won by defeating Marlon Moraes at UFC 238. Cejudo is also a former UFC Flyweight Champion, defeating Demetrious Johnson at UFC 227 to claim that title. Cejudo comes into the contest on the strength of a five fight winning streak and he hasn’t suffered a defeat in over three years.

Aldo (28-6-0) has gone winless since dropping to the UFC Bantamweight Division, losing to the aforementioned Moraes by split decision at UFC 245.

Aldo hasn’t won a bout in nearly a year, as his last win came at UFC Fight Night Fortaleza in February of 2019.
