Still think Romero vs bisping would have been the more exciting prospect with yoel being more of a wildcard, bit of beef between him & bispng. Whittaker is more wooden & introverted, more of a regular fighter.

Nope he won via rounds 3, 4 and 5.  All three judges scored it the same.

and they scored it correctly

So in summary....
Whittaker wins via front kicks and landing on top of Romero the last minute of rd5....smh.


Severe cringe. He won because he smashed Yoel and rocked him multiple times

I actually scored it 1,3,4,5 to Whittaker, but as long as you gave him the win it's acceptable

No Bisping would have pulled out mid camp when he hurt the leg first. He would've crumbled and quit in the first with that kick rekting the leg

Bisping Whittaker is a good fight and much harder than GSP and much much harder than Yoel, 40 year old overrated roid head with no game plan and no gas tank.

Whittaker on one leg.. Guys impressive but every time Oz says something need to remind him he's a kiwi. 3,4&5 easily and didn't have a bad opening round could make an argument he won that, certainly mentally, with he's takedown defence.

It wasn't a hard fight to score and honestly the 1st round was close.  The only definitive round for Romero was the 2nd.

Looking forward to the re-uniting of the belts.

What was the crowd feeling like throughout that fight? As a viewer it seemed neutral and moving towards Whittaker, every stuffed takedown they seemed to go more and more onto his side and at the end he had them all was my take.

Lots of Romero fans at the beginning. But it's hard for them to cheer for that guy when I'm yelling stuff like "Stop sniffing nuts!" and just booing relentlessly when he tried to hug against the cage.

By the end, it was all Whittaker fans yelling. We were loud as ****.

Yeah, his clinch work, where he held Whittaker in place without moving for minutes at a time was top notch. Simply exhilarating.

My problem with him. He's so boring and just try's to point fight by holding people. The guy also has no gas tank and is a cheat, without the obvious roid allegations. In brief moments he can be exciting and maybe this is why he irritates me so much
