UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero 2 is set for Saturday, and the pay-per-view card is one of the promotion’s best of the year, at least on paper. It’s a packed card from the United Center in Chicago and features a main event between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero for the UFC Middleweight Championship — or at least it did until the latter missed weight again. It will still be the main event, but a belt will not be on the line.
The interim UFC Welterweight Championship will be on the line in a bout between Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington.
The prelims begin at 6 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass, and continue at 8 p.m. on Fox Sports 1. The pay-per-view main card is set to begin at 10 p.m. Online streaming of the prelims can be had via fuboTV, UFC Fight Pass, and Fox Sports GO. Live streaming of the pay-per-view can be purchased from the UFC directly at UFC.TV and their YouTube channel.
It’s a stacked card even beyond the two top fights. Holly Holm will be taking on Megan Anderson in a featherweight bout, while longtime veteran heavyweight Andrei Arlovski will face Tai Tuivasa. Finally, the main card will open with CM Punk’s second professional mixed martial arts fight. He’s set to take on Mike Jackson.
The FS1 preliminary card features a heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Curtis Blaydes. The card is so stacked that even the UFC Fight Pass prelims have names like Rashad Evans, Joseph Benavidez, and Clay Guida.
