UFC 225 results, recap, and link wrap-up: Whittaker, Covington are golden in Chi-town, CM Punk is not

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the “Windy City” last Saturday night (June 9, 2018) with its UFC 225: “Whittaker vs. Romero” pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event, held inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

And it was a doozy.

Despite missing weight, Yoel Romero was able to make his Robert Whittaker fight and the two delivered a middleweight war for the ages. In the UFC 225 co-headliner, Colby Covington backed up his trash talk by beating up former lightweight kingpin Rafael dos Anjos.
