The UFC Star lands in Chicago, Illinois this Saturday to Get UFC 225.
The lineup is completely stacked from top to bottom.
Matchmakers Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard did a remarkable job with this particular fight card.
The UFC Fight Pass prelims alone feature former light heavyweight world champion Rashad Evans, a conflict between #1 and #5 ranked Flyweights Joe Benavidez and Sergio Pettis, along with the always exciting 6-time Fight of the Night bonus recipient Clay”The Carpenter” Guida.
The undercard will be broadcast live on FS1. Former title challenger Ricardo Lamas will square off against Bosnian Mirsad Bektic. Mirsad is coming off a Performance of the Night when he knocked out Godofredo Pepey in the 1st back in January.
There’s also a showdown involving two former Strawweight name challengers Brazilian Claudia Gadelha and”Cookie Monster” Carla Esparza. In addition, we get to find another name challenger Alistair Overeem collide with all the up and coming Curtis”Razor” Blaydes at a heavyweight matchup with severe title implications.
And that is just the undercard. I’m pumped!
Kicking off the principal card will be former WWE superstar and hometown boy C.M. Punk. Then we will see former world champions and present teammates Andrei Arlovski and Holly Holm in actions as well as two title fights in the main and co-main occasion.
Colby”Chaos” Covington has been remarkable inside the Octagon. It has been his cruel words for Brazilian lovers and never-ending smack talk from the direction of the divisional foes on Twitter that has moved up the Welterweight ladder quicker than anything, however.
He’ll face former 155 lb world champion Rafael Dos Anjos within an Interim Welterweight Title Fight.
The main event is a rematch between the 185-pound division’s finest fighters Yoel”The Soldier of God” Romero along with the title-holder from New Zealand Robert Whittaker. Whittaker was too much for Romero the first time that they locked horns, but the two are evenly matched and anything can happen when they meet again.
