That fight surpassed expectations, and was much better than the first fight!

Weird how Romero wrestled in the first fight, and had that ability to hurt Whittaker. Had Romero at least been given at least one 10-8 round(he could have been given two), the fight would have been scored a draw.

Whittaker is so damn tough. What a freaking fight man! Mad respect for both men. I wonder what is next for Yoel..

Gastelum is next for Whittaker! But man, Whittaker says his right hand is broken and I'm sure there are more injuries to be revealed after that absolute WAR of a fight. Holy shit! Honestly, very, very close fight. I don't have much of a problem with the decision (split decision for Whittaker) Hopefully Whittaker isn't out too long but I have a feeling he will not fight for a year after this.

Agreed. Not a robbery, but I was leaning more towards a draw. But hats off to Robert for being tough in the face of adversity.

I thought Romero won last three rounds. There should have been at least one 10-8 round for Romero. Draw also could be argued but unanimous decision for Whitaker, I didn’t expect that

Judges scored one of the Megan Anderson vs Holly Holm rounds 10-8...

None of those rounds were as deserving of 10-8 as round 5 of the main event.

In the 2.5 hours prior to Romero/Whittaker, there was 1 knockdown. One. That is unacceptable! Thank god for that main event.

Although other fighters got 10-8 rounds for doing less than a fourth of what Romero did, so I'm calling the judging rigged. Dana didn't want Romero to win.
