Henry Cejudo has been booked to fight at UFC 188 in Mexico City, according to a report from UFC Tonight.

While the 2008 Olympic gold medalist does not yet have an opponent for the June 13 event, a matchup with Chico Camus is reportedly in the works. UFC 188 takes place at Mexico City Arena and is headlined by a heavyweight championship clash between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.

Cejudo, who speaks fluent Spanish, is 8-0 since turning pro in March 2013. After withdrawing from a proposed flyweight bout at UFC 177 against Scott Jorgensen due to medical reasons, Cejudo made a successful Octagon debut at 135 pounds, outpointing Dustin Kimura at UFC on Fox 13. The 28-year-old Arizonan returned to flyweight at UFC 185, where he captured a unanimous decision against former title challenger Chris Cariaso.

Camus, meanwhile, is 3-2 with the Las Vegas-based promotion, including a split-verdict over Brad Pickett in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night “Edgar vs. Swanson.”
