The octagon returns to Chicago tonight for UFC 225!
The pay-per-view event is headlined by a middleweight rematch featuring current division champion Robert Whittaker squaring off with top contender Yoel Romero.
The highly anticipated rematch between “The Soldier of God” and “Bobby Knuckles” will be a non-title affair as Yoel Romero unfortunately missed weight by .2 lbs at Friday’s weigh ins.
Robert Whittaker was last seen in action at July’s UFC 213 event in Las Vegas where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Yoel Romero capturing the promotions interim middleweight title in the process.
Whittaker was later promoted to undisputed UFC middleweight champion, this after Georges St-Pierre opted to vacate his middleweight title after defeating Michael Bisping in New York.
Since moving up to the UFC’s middleweight division in November of 2014, Robert Whittaker has gone a perfect 7-0 which includes knockout victories over Clint Hester, Brad Tavares, Derek Brunson and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
“The Soldier of God” has gone an impressive 9-1 over his past ten fights which includes nasty knockout victories over Clifford Starks, Ronny Markes, Derek Brunson, Tim Kennedy, Lyoto Machida, Chris Weidman and most recently the aforementioned Luke Rockhold.
In the co-main event of the evening former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will take on surging contender Colby Covington for the promotions interim welterweight title.
