The first big UFC card in a while is finally here. UFC 225 takes place this Saturday, June 9th in Chicago, Illinois. And it looks like a great card from top to bottom, even if Yoel Romero didn’t make weight. Signs are that Romero’s fight with Robert Whittaker is still on as a non-title bout. In the co-main Rafael dos Anjos fights Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title, and Holly Holm battles Megan Anderson for the next crack at Cris Cyborg. That’s not even the start of the great fights, as the prelims are littered with top contender bouts as well.
