UFC 225 will be topped by the not one, but two title fights as Robert Whittaker defends his Middleweight title against Yoel Romero in a rematch from last year’s five round war at UFC 213. In the co-main event, Colby Covington and Rafael dos Anjos collide for the interim Welterweight title, which is set to do down inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois on Sat., June 9, 2018.
To help fans get amped for this weekend’s pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza, the promotion recently released its “Countdown to UFC 225” video special on FOX Sports 1, the same channel that airs the UFC 225 “Prelims” on Saturday night.
Should Romero prove victorious, don’t be surprised if we see a trilogy fight between them sooner, rather than later. The winner of Covington vs. dos Anjos, meanwhile, is expected to face off against current division champion Tyron Woodley later this year.
