On Thursday afternoon, the stars of UFC 225 took to the stage for their penultimate pre-fight staredowns.
This anticipated card, which goes down Saturday night in Chicago, Illinois, will be headlined by a middleweight title rematch between champion Robert Whittaker and challenger Yoel Romero. The pair first collided a little less than a year ago, in the main event of UFC 213. On that night, Whittaker walked away with a hard-fought unanimous decision win — and the interim middleweight title. He was then promoted to undisputed champion when Georges St-Pierre vacated that title late last year.
