10 Major Predictions For UFC 225: Whittaker Vs. Romero 2

The CM Punk circus rolls on in Chicago.

UFC

The world "stacked" was invented for shows like UFC 225.

Barring any last minute pull-outs, the promotion will present the year's most star-studded lineup this Saturday evening (June 9), with Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero's Middleweight Championship rematch taking top billing. Their first fight was a barnburner, with the Australian overcoming injury to score a deserved unanimous decision victory. Romero has since rebounded with a win over Luke Rockhold, but the Champion hasn't fought since, with a knee injury and untreated staph infection sidelining him for 11 months.

Elsewhere, Rafael dos Anjos and the controversial Colby Covington will fight for the interim Welterweight strap, while former champions Holly Holm and Andrei Arlovski are set to face Megan Anderson and Tai Tuivasa respectively. The CM Punk carnival will continue, too, with the former WWE man meeting another 0-1 fighter in Mike Jackson.

Even the preliminary cards are laced with star power, as the likes of Alistair Overeem, Clay Guida, and Rashad Evans will all compete on Fight Pass and Fox Sports 1. This makes UFC 225 an absolute blockbuster, with most fights looking every bit as exciting as they are tough to call...
