The UFC circus lands in Chicago, Illinois this Saturday for UFC 225.
The lineup is completely stacked from top to bottom.
Matchmakers Sean Shelby and Mick Maynard really did a remarkable job on this particular card.
The UFC Fight Pass prelims alone comprise former light heavyweight world champion Rashad Evans, a battle between #1 and #5 rated Flyweights Joe Benavidez and Sergio Pettis, and the always exciting 6-time Fight of the Night bonus recipient Clay”The Carpenter” Guida.
The undercard will be broadcast live on FS1. Former name challenger Ricardo Lamas will square off against Bosnian Mirsad Bektic. Mirsad is coming off a Performance of the Night when he pumped out Godofredo Pepey from the 1st round back in January.
There is 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 the up and coming Curtis”Razor” Blaydes in a heavyweight matchup with serious name implications.
And that is just the undercard. I’m pumped!
Kicking off the main card will probably be former WWE superstar and hometown boy C.M. Punk. Then we’ll see former world champions and present teammates Andrei Arlovski and Holly Holm in action and two title fights in the primary and co-main event.
Colby”Chaos” Covington has been impressive within the Octagon. It has been his cruel words for Brazilian lovers and never-ending smack talk from the direction of the divisional foes onto Twitter which has moved him up the Welterweight ladder faster than anything, however.
He will face former 155 lb world winner Rafael Dos Anjos within an Interim Welterweight Title Fight.
The main event is a rematch between the 185-pound branch’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 very first time that they locked horns, but the two are evenly matched and anything could happen when they meet again.
