Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero will perform it back again, as the two fighters will do battle for the second time in the main event of UFC 225. Whittaker, who won the first game at UFC 213, is the -260 favorite with Romero coming back in +200.
The first struggle between Whittaker and Romero performed as many people would have predicted, together with Romero winning the early rounds thanks to his explosiveness and wrestling while Whittaker’s cardio vascular and volume striking ultimately won him the struggle in the later rounds.
Whittaker has not fought since UFC 213, since he suffered a staph infection, which derailed a title defense against Luke Rockhold in UFC 221.
Romero stepped into Whittaker’s sneakers and filled in to compete against Rockhold. Romero won that struggle using his striking over his wrestling, as his power got to Rockhold and contributed to yet another third-round stoppage success for”The Soldier of God.”
