Blaydes welcomes Overeem to Chicago on June 9

The Windy City of Chicago will be host to a collision of heavyweight contenders on June 9, as hometown favorite Curtis "Razor" Blaydes looks to take out No. 2-ranked Alistair Overeem in a UFC 225 bout at United Center.
 
Tickets for UFC 225, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, go on sale on April 13.

Fresh from the most important win of his career over Mark Hunt in February, the No. 5-ranked Blaydes is unbeaten in his last five bouts in the Octagon, but no win would be bigger than one over the Netherlands' "Demolition Man," a former Strikeforce, Dream and K-1 World Grand Prix champion whose last four UFC wins have come against Fabricio Werdum, Hunt, Andrei Arlovski and Junior Dos Santos.
