Dana White explains why CM Punk got UFC 225 main card spot instead of Alistair

The UFC 225 bout order has been the subject of much controversy among fans.

The controversy stems from the fact that former pro wrestler CM Punk and his opponent Mike Jackson, both of whom own…

Overeem and Blaydes were originally expected to be on the UFC 225 main card, but were bumped from their spot to make room for a women’s featherweight contender bout between Holly Holm and Megan Anderson. While nobody is complaining that this featherweight bout has been added to the main card, the widespread opinion is that if any bout should have been bumped from the pay-per-view to make room for it, it should have been Punk’s. Not Overeem’s.
