Two championship conflicts are reserved for UFC 225 in Chicago on June 9, establishing one of the better pay-per-view cards to the year.
In the primary event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defends his strap in a rematch against Yoel Romero, who knocked out Luke Rockhold to make the challenge. The very first time they met, Whittaker outboxed the dangerous Romero for five rounds to claim the interim belt. The young Aussie was later installed as the undisputed champ after GSP vacated the belt.
As we all know, Romero is one of the most explosive athletes to ever grace the octagon, and any moment he is on his toes is just one where he can author a barbarous finish. However, Bobby Knuckles has come to be a leading tactician, and his excellent boxing is now a problem that contenders can’t resolve.
In the co-main, Rafael dos Anjos will fulfill Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title. Covington has been making plenty of headlines, doing a bad impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way to big fights. It’s working, but he has quickly become the most hated fighter on roster. His current announcements about Brazil should give Rafael dos Anjos lots of motivation to close up Covington.
Also on the card is bantamweight No. 1 competitor Joe Benavidez, two-time strawweight title challenger Claudia Gadelha, heavyweight title challenger Alistair Overeem, former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans. Simply to top it off, CM Punk will struggle his hometown for his next pro MMA bout.

Things to Watch For
Robert Whittaker will make his first title defense against the man he beat to win the title. While he’s the large favorite coming in, counting out someone as dangerous as Romero is just plain stupid. Keep your eyes Romero’s cost, as approaching anyplace close to +200 will be an excellent opportunity.
