Ariel Helwani reported on UFC Tonight Wednesday that Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo has been booked to face Chico Camus at UFC 188: Velasquez vs. Werdum in Mexico City on June 13, 2015.

"I'm hearing that Henry Cejudo will fight Chico Camus in Mexico, but the UFC hasn't made it official."

The 28 year-old Cejudo is 2-0 in the UFC and 8-0 as a pro, but has struggled with weight cuts to make the 125 pound flyweight limit. Most recently he won his UFC Flyweight debut in a dominant unanimous decision win over Chris Cariaso at UFC 185 in Dallas.

The 30-year-old Camus is also a relative newcomer at flyweight, having made his divisional debut against Brad Pickett at UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson where he notched a split decision. He's 14-5, 1 NC overall as a pro and 3-2, 1 NC in the UFC.  His decision win over Yaotzin Meza was overturned due to a positive drug test result for marijuana metabolites.

UFC 188 will be headlined by a Heavyweight title unificaiton bout between champ Cain Velasquez and interim champ Fabricio Werdum.
