The UFC circus 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 really did a remarkable job on this particular fight card.
The UFC Fight Pass prelims alone feature 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 receiver 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 round back in January.
There’s also a showdown between two former Strawweight name challengers Brazilian Claudia Gadelha and”Cookie Monster” Carla Esparza. We also get to find another name challenger Alistair Overeem collide with the up and coming Curtis”Razor” Blaydes in a heavyweight matchup with serious title implications.
And that’s just the undercard. I am pumped!
Kicking off the principal card will 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 as well as two title fights from the main and co-main occasion.
Colby”Chaos” Covington was impressive within the Octagon. It has been his cruel words for Brazilian fans and never-ending smack talk from the direction of his divisional foes onto Twitter which has moved him up the Welterweight ladder faster than anything, though.
He will face former 155 pound world winner Rafael Dos Anjos within an Interim Welterweight Title Fight.
The most important event is a rematch between the 185-pound division’s best 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 they locked horns, but the two are evenly matched and anything could happen when they meet again.
