We are heading to “The Windy City”. Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero 2 is scheduled for UFC 225! Chicago will be the host of his great event, and we can also expect a title fight soon. (reported by mmafighting.com)
Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero is definitively an interesting rivalry. In the first fight, Robert Whittaker (19-4) defeated Yoel Romero (13-2) via unanimous decision at UFC 213. Now Yoel has a great chance to revenge for the loss. Whittaker became the official champ after Georges St-Pierre vacated the title not long after he defeated Michael Bisping at UFC 217.
Romero should face Luke Rockhold in a title fight, however, he had 2.7 pounds more, which made him ineligible for a title shot. Robert Whittaker pulled out due to a litany of illnesses. Despite Yoel Romero defeated Luke Rockhold via third-round knockout at UFC 221, he is still a No.1 contender.
UFC 225 will be a great pay-per-view event, with Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero 2 in the headline. A former WWE champion CM Punk will also be a competitor in this event. What do you think, will Yoel Romero revenge for the loss?
