Two championship conflicts are booked for UFC 225 at Chicago on June 9, establishing one of the better pay-per-view cards for the year.
At the primary event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defends his strap at a rematch against Yoel Romero, who knocked out Luke Rockhold to make the challenge. The first time they met, Whittaker outboxed the harmful Romero for five rounds to claim the interim belt. The young Aussie was installed as the undisputed champ after GSP vacated the buckle.
As we all know, Romero is one of the most explosive athletes to ever grace the octagon, and any moment he is on his feet is just one where he can author a brutal finish. However, Bobby Knuckles has become a stellar tactician, and his excellent boxing has become an issue that contenders can’t solve.
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 poor impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way into big fights. It’s working, but he has quickly become the most hated fighter . His recent announcements about Brazil should give Rafael dos Anjos lots of inspiration to shut up Covington.
Also on the card is bantamweight No. 1 contender 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 off, CM Punk will fight his hometown for his second pro MMA bout.
