Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to the pay-per-view (PPV) market this Saturday night (June 9, 2018) with UFC 225: “Whittaker vs Romero 2,” which takes place inside United Center in Chicago, IL.
The event will feature not one, but two title fights as Robert Whittaker will defend his Middleweight title against a man he defeated last year, Yoel Romero. In the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will collide for the interim Welterweight strap.
Robert, Colby, Rafael and the rest of the fighters on the card are going through the final steps leading up to fight night. In episode four of Embedded, the Covington clan take in the sights “Chi-Town” has to offer, while Megan Anderson and Rafael dos Anjos get in a good sweat. CM Punk, meanwhile, gets fitted for his fight night gear. Plus, check out a behind-the-scenes view of the open workouts.
