UFC 225 promo video trailer for ‘Whittaker vs Romero 2’ in Chicago

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will next hit the pay-per-view (PPV) market on June 9, 2018, in Chicago, Ill., as UFC 225 is set to go down from inside United Center. And it’s stacked.

Headlining the card will be a championship rematch that will see Middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defend his title against Yoel Romero, the man he defeated at UFC 215 to win the interim strap. Much has changed since then, as “The Reaper” is now the official champion, while “Soldier of God” missed out on his chance to become an interim title holder for failing to make weight for his fight against Luke Rockhold, which he won via knockout.

Meanwhile in the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will fight for the interim Welterweight title and the right to face division kingpin Tyron Woodley later this year. If that weren’t enough, Alistair Overeem will take on Curtis Blaydes in main card action, while C.M. Punk returns to the Octagon to face Mike Jackson.
