Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few days away from staging its most stacked card of the year as UFC 225 is locked and loaded for this Saturday (June 9, 2018) in Chicago, Illinois.
The pay-per-view (PPV) event is set to be headlined by a Middleweight title fight between division king Robert Whittaker looking to defend his chunk of gold against Yoel Romero. The co-main event is just as intriguing, as Rafael dos Anjos looks to etch his name in the history books when he takes on Colby Covington for the interim Welterweight title.
Plus you have Alistair Overeem, CM Punk, Holly Holm among others competing at the event. Before the punches and kicks start flying the UFC Embedded cameras are busy following around many of the stars of UFC 225 to give you a peak of their fight week preparations.

Fighters check in, including featherweight Megan Anderson and middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero, and the Australians on the card brave a cold-weather photo shoot.
