Main Event:Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero
Co-Main Event:Rafael Dos Anjos vs Colby Covington
Interim Welterweight Championship
The undisputed middleweight championship will be on the line at UFC’s return to Chicago on June 9. Robert Whittaker defends his belt against Yoel Romero in an anticipated rematch that headlines UFC 225. Revisiting their 2017 Fight of the Night battle that earned Australia’s Whittaker the 185-pound title, Cuba’s Romero has earned a second shot at UFC gold with a devastating knockout of Luke Rockhold in February.
In the co-main event, a grudge will be settled when Colby “Chaos” Covington faces former lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anjos for the interim UFC welterweight title. Covington has used his swarming ground attack to win five straight bouts, but he will face the stiffest challenge of his career in the form of Rio de Janeiro’s Dos Anjos. After moving to the welterweight division last year, the former 155-pound king has defeated Tarec Saffiedine, Neil Magny and Robbie Lawler in succession.Order by Phone
