Two championship fights have been reserved for UFC 225 in 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 at a rematch against Yoel Romero, who pumped out Luke Rockhold to earn the battle. The very first time they met, Whittaker outboxed the dangerous Romero for five rounds to maintain the interim belt. The young Aussie was later installed as the undisputed champ after GSP vacated the belt.
As we all know, Romero is one of the most explosive athletes to grace the octagon, and any moment he is on his toes is just one where he can author a barbarous finish. However, Bobby Knuckles has come to be a stellar tactician, and his superb boxing is now a problem that contenders can’t resolve.
In the co-main, Rafael dos Anjos will fulfill Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title. Covington has been making plenty of headlines, doing a bad impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way to big fights. It’s working, but he’s quickly become the most hated fighter . His recent statements about Brazil should give 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. Simply to top it all off, CM Punk will struggle in his hometown for his next pro MMA bout.
