UFC 225 Full Fight Card, Start Time & How To Watch


Tonight (Sat. June 9, 2018) the UFC returns to Chicago, Illinois for what is the most stacked mixed martial arts (MMA) card thus far in 2018.

The main event of the evening will see UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker take on No. 1-ranked Yoel Romero in a non-title fight after the Cuban missed weight.

In the co-main event, the interim welterweight championship will be on the line when former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos takes on Colby Covington. The winner will likely challenge undisputed champion Tyron Woodley to unify their titles down the road.

Also, former WWE Champion CM Punk makes his second-ever Octagon appearance when he takes on MMA journalist Mike Jackson. You can check out the full fight card, start time and information on how to watch here below:
