UFC Announces Chicago Return For UFC 238

The UFC will be heading back to "The Windy City" this summer for their UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) event.

The UFC has announced it will be returning to “The Windy City” this summer. Per the mixed martial arts (MMA) promotional juggernaut’s Twitter page, the UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) will go down from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on June 8, 2019:

The promotion’s last even in Chicago was a smashing success. UFC 225 featured a very memorable night of fights in Illinois. Curtis Blaydes delivered a gruesome TKO finish of Alistair Overeem in the prelims. The main card opened up with hometown hero CM Punk making his second-ever walk to the Octagon. He was defeated by Mike Jackson via unanimous decision. Also, Colby Covington won the interim UFC welterweight championship in the co-main event.

Covington bested former 155-pound king Rafael dos Anjos after five rounds. And of course, the middleweight classic between 185-pound champion Robbert Whittaker and Yoel Romero in the main event. Initially, their fight was to be a middleweight title bout. However, Romero missed weight for the fight, forcing it to be changed to a five-round non-title fight.

Hopefully, the UFC can replicate another great card for Chicago fans at the United Center. Perhaps CM Punk will get a third opportunity inside the Octagon in his hometown yet again.

What do you think about the UFC returning to Chicago this summer?
