Who ya got?! Fighters predict Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero 2 at UFC 225



(This story was originally published on June 8, 2018.)

CHICAGO – Who will win tonight’s UFC 225 headliner between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero? Fellow fighters gave us their picks.

Middleweight champion Whittaker (19-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and Romero (13-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC) meet in a rematch – though it no longer will be for Whittaker’s 185-pound title after Romero missed weight today.

Whittaker won the interim belt in 2017 with a unanimous decision against Romero, and he was then promoted to full champion after Georges St-Pierre vacated the title he won against Michael Bisping.

Whittaker is favored with the oddsmakers. But what do fellow fighters think? Are they going with the champ or the underdog? Check out the video above to see their predictions. (Editor’s note: Interviews in this video took place prior to Romero’s miss on the scale.)

UFC 225 takes place at United Center in Chicago, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
