Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero 2 targeted for UFC 225

Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero 2 targeted for UFC 225”

The Cuban star and Whittaker originally faced off for the interim title at UFC 213 last July, where the Australian pulled off a surprise decision win - Romero's second ever loss - to claim the interim middleweight belt. The people that have fought with me, if they want to be honest and we're not even talking about if they won or loss, we're talking about the gas, if it's as easy to get that rhythm going. And now you see what happened with Luke Rockhold. [I was happy because] I learned.

Whittaker initially suggested that date when he was coming back from an illness that knocked him out of his previously scheduled fight at UFC 221 in February. I learned about timing. I went to Albuquerque with Jon Jones and I learned something. "I don't have a problem with five rounds now".

Romero did control his pace quite well in the Rockhold fight, and in round three, he did look pretty fresh. Romero wound up winning the fight via third round knockout and was unable to win the interim strap - but guaranteed himself a shot at Whittaker's title next. So, if you're a top tier middleweight in the UFC, this news might be a wee bit stressful for you. Can Romero still control his attacks?

Unfortunately Whittaker suffered a bad illness that forced him out of the fight.

During an appearance on "The JRE MMA Show" with Joe Rogan, Romero revealed that the bout has been booked for UFC 225 at the United Center in Chicago on June 9.
