UFC 225: Robert Whittaker Vs. Yoel Romero 2
UFC 225 pay-per-view (PPV) event, is set to take place on Sat., June 9, 2018, inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
In the main headliner, current middleweight champion Robert Whittaker will square off against division No. 1 contender Yoel Romero. Meanwhile former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos takes on trash talker Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title in the night’s co-main event.
The main card also features a return of former WWE superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks to the Octagon when he clashes with Mike Jackson in his hometown. Punk lost his professional debut at UFC 203.
Card also features a first non-title women’s featherweight fight between Holly Holm and former Invicta champion Megan Anderson. The winner most likely gets the next shot at current champion Cris Cyborg.
