    Rematch of Whittaker and Romero for the UFC middleweight belt

    On June 10, we will see the UFC middleweight championship between champion Robert Whittaker and #1 contender Yoel Romero. It is actually a rematch because Whittaker had won their first meeting for the Interim belt. When champion Michael Bisping was defeated by George St. Pierre and later vacated the seat, the interim champion Whittaker was proclaimed champion.

    Re: Rematch of Whittaker and Romero for the UFC middleweight belt

    After 5 rounds, Robert Whittaker won by split decision over Cuban Yoel Romero. Whittaker was floored several times by the hard punches of Romero but Whittaker was consistent in his offense. Whittaker slowed down in the last round due to a broken right hand. It can be remembered that Whittaker had an injured leg in their first fight.

    Re: Rematch of Whittaker and Romero for the UFC middleweight belt

    Now, this was one fight that I really enjoyed. The kick from Whittaker that landed on Romero's right eye was scary as hell. But Romero's left hand power shots did not disappoint either. It was a close call though.

    Re: Rematch of Whittaker and Romero for the UFC middleweight belt

    The commentators led by Joe Rogan were complaining about the majority decision that was awarded to Whittaker. They said that the last 2 rounds were obviously a 10-8 round which should have eclipsed the decision to a unanimous in favor of Yoel Romero. In the interview, Romero said that he felt he had been robbed of victory. By the way, Romero was overweight by 0.2 pounds, another issue that the commentators were ranting about that Romero should have been allowed an hour to shed off that excess weight. If Romero had won the fight, he would not get the belt since he was overweight. And if you think Whittaker had faded in the last rounds, he had a broken right hand hence he was fighting only with his left hand.

    It was a narrow win, so I can understand why Romero claims he was robbed of victory. Although, I don't know why he was complaing considering he's the one who made the fight a non-title one after failing to make weight.

    From what I remember, Whittaker really worked Romero's legs from the minute they touched gloves. Most of Romero's punches kept missing the target although he landed a couple of shots.
