UFC 225 takes place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on June 10 (June 9 in the US). The Pay-Per-View event is headlined by two title fights with the defending middleweight champion Robert Whittaker who faces off Yoel Romero on the top of the bill, and Rafael dos Anjos up against Colby Covington, battling it out for the interim welterweight belt in the co-main event.
Following “You ain’t seen nothin’ like this” promo trailer released earlier this month, a new clip hit stream late this week. Titled as “Gladiator” it features the highlight movements of the main event fighters in knockout action.
Also on the card, CM Punk takes on Mike Jackson at welterweight, and Curtis Blaydes squares off against Alistair Overeem at heavyweight. In addition, Andrei Arlovski and Tai Tuivasa collide at heavyweight.
