Two championship fights have been booked for UFC 225 at Chicago on June 9, setting up one of the superior pay-per-view cards to the year.
At the main event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defends his strap in a rematch against Yoel Romero, who pumped out Luke Rockhold to earn the battle. The first time they met, Whittaker outboxed the dangerous Romero for five rounds to claim the interim belt. The young Aussie was installed as the undisputed champ after GSP vacated the belt.
As we all know, Romero is among the most explosive athletes to grace the octagon, and any moment he is on his feet is just one where he can author a barbarous finish. However, Bobby Knuckles has become a stellar tactician, and his excellent boxing has become a problem that contenders can not solve.
From the co-main, Rafael dos Anjos will meet Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title. Covington has been making plenty of headlinesdoing a bad impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way to big fights. It is working, but he’s quickly become the most despised fighter on roster. His current statements about Brazil should provide Rafael dos Anjos plenty of motivation to shut up Covington.
Also on the card is bantamweight No. 1 competitor Joe Benavidez, two-time strawweight title challenger Claudia Gadelha, heavyweight title challenger Alistair Overeem, former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans. Just to top it all off, CM Punk will struggle his hometown for his second ace MMA bout.
