Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its official weigh-in event for UFC 225, headlined by Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero, for this Saturday night’s (June 9, 2018) mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
The pair will run it back in “The Windy City” to see if the result is any different than UFC 213, where “The Reaper” captured a hard-fought decision victory over “Soldier of God” after five rounds of intense middleweight action.
Watch them face off above.
Also getting their hands dirty at UFC 225 are co-headliners Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington. The Brazilian is trying to add a second division title to his collection by turning away “Chaos,” who wants the interim title in this weekend’s showdown to guarantee him a Tyron Woodley title-unification bout.
Check out their staredown embedded below.
