UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero

 

UFC 225 comes rolling into Chicago with the best top to bottom card of the year so far. The main event is a rematch of a great fight from last year as Yoel Romero looks to get even with Robert Whittaker but because Romero missed weight the title is no longer on the line! This fight card is stacked, and to give you a sense as to how stacked it is, consider this; the #1 ranked (next fighter in line behind the belt holder) Flyweight in the world, Joseph Benavidez is taking on the #5 Flyweight in the world, Sergio Pettis, and these two aren’t even fighting each other on the main card! Hell, they aren’t even fighting each other on the FS1 Prelim card! The are the 3rd fight of the night which is taking place on the Fight Pass Prelims Portion of the card! Ha! 

It’s a very evenly matched card with a solid mix of long time UFC vets (Arlovski, Guida, Evans), and prospective up and comers (Bektic, Tuivasa, Punk). We should get a good mix of ground...
