The UFC’s return to the “Windy City” has started to build with the addition of a pair of fights, including the return of one of the world’s top flyweights.

Joseph Benavidez (25-4 MMA, 12-2 UFC) will return after what will be a year-and-a-half-long injury layoff to take on Sergio Pettis (16-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) at UFC 225. In addition, Rashad Coulter (8-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC) will take on Allen Crowder (9-3 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in a heavyweight bout.

I like this matchup, Sergio has been on a decent run and Joey B has been out for a while.
