UFC fight schedule 2018: Whittaker-Romero II, Miocic-Cormier headline PPV events

UFC is off to another busy year after kicking off 2018 with a huge PPV in UFC 220 where heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic set the title defense record for the division with a unanimous decision win over Francis Ngannou. Then, Cris Cyborg made lightwork of challenger Yana Kunitskaya to retain her women's featherweight title while Brian Ortega became the first person to stop Frankie Edgar in the co-main event. Finally at UFC 223, when all else failed, Khabib Nurmagomedov was finally crowned the lightweight king when he dismantled Al Iaquinta in Brooklyn, New York.

Now the company heads into its summer schedule hoping to keep its PPVs as intact as possible after the incredible week that was in Brooklyn. In June, UFC heads back to Chicago with a trio of intriguing fights, including the return of CM Punk, Rafael dos Anjos vs. Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title and a rematch for the middleweight crown between champion Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.

Then in July, we will see the first heavyweight superfight when heavyweight champ Miocic will take on light heavyweight king Daniel Cormier for the heavyweight title as well as Mike Perry against Yancy Medeiros. And in August, we get the long-awaited rematch between bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt in Los Angeles.

Here's the full schedule with more fights to be determined.
