Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero 2 for the middleweight title is scheduled for UFC 225 in Chicago, MMA Fighting has confirmed. The promotion is expected to officially announce the title fight in the near future.
BJPenn.com first reported the news (Now Play)
Whittaker (19-4) defeated Romero (13-2) via unanimous decision at UFC 213 last July to win the interim middleweight title. Since then, Whittaker was crowned the official champion without having to unify the belts after Georges St-Pierre decided to vacate the 185-pound belt following his victory over then-champion Michael Bisping at UFC 217.
Romero was scheduled to fight Luke Rockhold for the interim title in February after Whittaker pulled out due to a litany of illnesses — including a bout with chicken pox — however, Romero missed weight prior to the fight and was thus ineligible to win the title. The Cuban-born fighter ended up knocking out Rockhold in the third round anyway and still cemented his place as the No. 1 contender.
Now, the duo will square off once again for the real title in the UFC’s first pay-per-view event at Chicago’s United Center. Former WWE champion turned MMA fighter CM Punk, who hails from Chicago, is also slated to compete on the card.
Whittaker and Romero initially fought at UFC 213 back in July with the former winning by a narrow unanimous decision. Romero controlled the first two rounds and Whittaker surged to win the last three rounds, becoming the interim titleholder. He was crowned undisputed champion after Georges St-Pierre vacated the belt.
Whittaker (20-4) was scheduled to make his first title defense against Luke Rockhold at UFC 221 in his native Australia. Whittaker, 27, had to bow out due to a staph infection and chickenpox. Yoel Romero (13-2) stepped in on short notice to replace Whittaker and knocked Rockhold out in the third round.
The interim title bout was made due to champion Tyron Woodley being inactive since last July’s UFC 214 because of shoulder surgery. He is targeting a late summer/early fall return.
After losing the title and the subsequent fight to Benson Henderson, dos Anjos (28-9) moved up to 170 pounds one year ago. Since the move, he’s won all three fights in dominant fashion.
Like his opponent, Covington (13-1) is on a tear of his own. He’s won five in a row after suffering his only loss to Warlley Alves at UFC 194. People feel Covington talked his way into this fight and doesn’t deserve the opportunity, since his biggest win came against an aging 40-year-old Demian Maia
