YOEL ROMERO CONFIRMS REMATCH AGAINST ROBERT WHITTAKER PLANNED FOR UFC 225
It looks like Yoel Romero will get his second shot at middleweight champion Robert Whittaker as part of the UFC 225 card in Chicago on June 9.

While the matchup was previously reported as in the works for the card, Romero confirmed the date for the highly anticipated rematch when appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Monday.

At the time, Romero was talking about training with a new coach, who has truly helped him prepare for these five round championship fights like the one he’ll have against Whittaker later this year.

“I was preparing myself but not preparing myself correctly for how I was going to fight,” Romero said. “This new trainer really gets me prepared for how I should fight. I was trying to fight at a high pace for five rounds because I know my gas. 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.

“There’s one thing to be out of the fight and one thing to be in the fight. Let’s just wait till June 9”

When asked if UFC 225 was the landing spot for his fight with Whittaker, Romero answered “yes” which confirms the plans the organization has made for the middleweight title bout to take place in Chicago.

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.

Now it appears Whittaker will face the man he defeated to win the title last July after edging out Romero in a back and forth war that lasted all five rounds.

He beat him on one good leg last time, how much worse will it be this time? :twisted:
I'm so fucking high.

Whittaker has been through hell of a lot. This is gunna be a close contest imho. I'm going to give it to whittaker because I believe in his boxing being able to keep Yoels lunging shot from hurting him.

Really tough call. If this goes to distance Whittaker takes it. Romero needs to finish him and is very well capable of doing that. I think Romero wins the rematch. My guess is Whittaker will be a bit cocky and careless and Romero will capitalise

Can't wait to get a real middleweight title fight. Hoping that it's a start of new era in the middleweight division.

Actually a very tough one to call.Romero will be able to be more successful after being in there once but Whitetaker has been improving so much so it could end up being just like the first fight.

I have a feeling Bobby Blue Eyes will make it 2-0 against Yoel...not sure he'll be able to avoid the post-fight kissing and sexual misconduct though.
