Whittaker wins split decision in UFC war with Romero

UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker says he is in best shape ever before his UFC return bout with Yoel Romero

He also missed weight for his interim middleweight title fight against former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold that served as the main event of the UFC 221 pay-per-view event at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia. Covington controlled the five-round title fight by outstriking the former lightweight champ.

The bout proved to be the fight of the year despite being downgraded from a battle for the belt. As for Romero, if he can get his weight under control, it will be interesting to see where he goes from here. This will be his second UFC fight ever.

"I missed weight but the situation is very complicated", Romero said. Between the swelling and his lack of conditioning, Romero fought with more urgency in the third round and cut loose a right hand that sent the champion careening to the canvas.

At UFC 213, Whittaker gutted out a gruelling 25-minute brawl against Romero with all three judges scoring it 48-47.

"UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero is one of the most stacked cards of the organization's history with the first bout kicking off at 5:15pm CT at the United Center on Saturday night". Jackson peppered Punk (0-2) with punches to the face throughout the fight and won in a lacklustre unanimous decision. Romero knocked out Rockhold in the second round.

Given that he was competing for the UFC belt, he had to make "championship weight" of 185lbs or under. "We want to fight for the title". Yes, it's their job to make weight.

NASA Reveals Organic Molecules and Seasonal Methane Spikes Found on Mars
Methane is also quickly broken down by ultraviolet radiation, so any of the gas discovered on Mars was probably released recently. JPL's Christopher Webster, lead author on the study, said it's the first time Martian methane has shown a repeated pattern.

A contributing part of him missing weight was the fact that the commission made him stop cutting weight after only an hour. Fighters should fight at the same weight they walk around at. Then again, he has constantly teetered in that narrow gray area between outright cheating and slightly questionable behavior. In response, Romero threw cold water on the idea.

Because, sure, his performances in the Octagon have earned him a place in rarified air. But the things that happen outside the cage matter just as much as the actual fighting, and that's where Romero has continually failed in spectacular fashion.
