The Ultimate Fighting Championship is heading back to Chicago in June once again, this time for UFC 238.
The pay-per-view event is set to take place on Saturday, June 8 at the United Center, the promotion announced during UFC 234’s pay-per-view broadcast. Right now, no fights for the card have been announced.
The Las Vegas-based organization was last in Chicago for UFC 225 last June, when Robert Whittaker defeated Yoel Romero by split decision in what was a non-title fight given Romero missed weight. Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Colby Covington defeated Rafael dos Anjos for the interim welterweight crown. Whittaker and Covington have not competed in the Octagon since that night.
Last year, Chicago sold out the United Center and netted a $2.55 million dollar gate. While the promotion has announced the venue and location for UFC 237 and UFC 238, there is no word yet on UFC 236, which is just two months away.
