Two championship conflicts are booked for UFC 225 at Chicago on June 9, setting up one of the superior pay-per-view cards to the year.
At the main event, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker defends his strap at a rematch against Yoel Romero, who knocked out Luke Rockhold to earn 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 buckle.
As most of us know, Romero is one of the most explosive athletes to grace the octagon, and any time he is on his toes is just one where he could author a brutal finish. However, Bobby Knuckles has come to be a stellar tactician, and his excellent boxing has become an issue that contenders can not resolve.
From the co-main, Rafael dos Anjos will meet Colby Covington for its interim welterweight title. Covington has been making lots of headlinesdoing a poor impression of Chael Sonnen to trash talk his way into big fights. It is working, but he has rapidly become the most despised fighter on roster. His current announcements about Brazil should provide Rafael dos Anjos lots of inspiration to shut up Covington.
Also on the card is bantamweight No. 1 contender 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. Just to top it off, CM Punk will struggle in his hometown for his second ace MMA bout.

What to Watch For
Robert Whittaker will make his first title defense against the man he beat to win the title. While he’s the big favorite coming in, counting out somebody as dangerous as Romero is just plain dumb. Keep your eyes on Romero’s price, as coming anyplace close to +200 would be an excellent prospect.
