Two championship conflicts have been booked for UFC 225 in Chicago on June 9, establishing one of the superior pay-per-view cards for the year.
In the primary event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defends his strap in a rematch against Yoel Romero, who knocked out Luke Rockhold to earn the challenge. The very first time they met, Whittaker outboxed the harmful Romero for five rounds to claim the interim belt. The young Aussie was later installed as the undisputed champ after GSP vacated the buckle.
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 could author a brutal finish. But Bobby Knuckles has become a stellar tactician, and his superb boxing is now an issue that contenders can not resolve.
From the co-main, Rafael dos Anjos will fulfill Colby Covington for its interim welterweight title. Covington has been making plenty of headlinesdoing a poor impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way into big fights. It’s working, but he’s quickly become the most hated fighter on roster. His recent statements about Brazil should provide Rafael dos Anjos lots of motivation 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. Just to top it all off, CM Punk will fight in his hometown for his next pro MMA bout.

What to Watch For
Robert Whittaker will make his first title defense against the guy he beat to win the title. While he’s the big favorite coming , counting out someone as harmful as Romero is just plain stupid. Keep your eyes Romero’s price, as approaching anywhere close to +200 would be a superb prospect.
