John and Dan preview the UFC 225 main event between UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero. The two first met back at UFC 213 where Whittaker had his hand raised after a grueling five round war to become the first Australian to wear UFC gold. Romero confirmed his status as the number one contender by knocking out former champion Luke Rockhold, and now the Cuban gets a chance at redemption against the newly crowned champion. Hosted by UFC commentators John Gooden and Dan Hardy, UFC Inside the Octagon is an in-depth tactical analysis show that previews the feature fights at upcoming UFC events.
