Whittaker out of UFC 221, Romero replaces him.

Recommended Posts

It's all good though.... it's really a win win situation.... we get to see Rockhold get bodied and then we get  Whittaker vs Romero this time ending in spectacular fashion although I can't really say who will be the one on the positive side of it. I'm honestly torn because I enjoy seeing both weak folks but Whittaker is younger and will be fighting longer so I guess I'd be pulling for him more

I like this match up as well, it will be a good test to see where Rockhold is at, for me he is the best MW but he has to prove it again, beating Roidmero and then Whittaker should erase that awful KO loss to Bisping:P

Romero once even said in an interview couple of months ago he would get a title shot when a contender gets injured and he would be ready to replace him.

Im ok with that fight, honestly. We, the fans, didnt really lose much.

 

The MW title picture is a legit mess. I thought Whittaker/Luke was for the vacant title but now Luke/Romero will be for the interim title ?

 

It is so obvious and clear the UFC wants to have 2 champs for each divisions

They bumped Whittaker up to champ after GSP dropped it, as they did with Aldo when they stripped Conor so the main event between Holloway and Pettis could be for an interim. I think it's more they want every ppv to be headlined by championship fights hence the occasional making of a interim. For me this is more reason to add more weight classes because on top of fighter safety you have added title fights for ppv's

I was not aware of it. I thought Whittaker vs Luke was a fight for a vacant belt tbh.

 

Thanks m8

That's not crying at all....

 

He's saying the division is sloppy. Which is obvious. Which sucks because it was just cleaned up.

I don't know Weidman....

 

Says literally the second dumbest person on the forum

 

 

Why wouldnt he say congrats to Romero or something like may the best man win? Branch was classy about it in his instagram post....Weidman is being a little ****.

All he said was "This division."

Can't believe I beat Jolldan and AndyWang to this. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

....Should have been Bisping vs Rockhold 3 amirite?

I was editing ufc video game highlights, so I can put them on YouTube and ruin the life of FH on there as well

I just want to know if he is now classed as ducking Luke because he is injured. Everyone else is a can when they can't compete right?

I don't think Whittaker ducked Rockhold. It would have been a faily easy fight for him since Luke has the worst striking defense in mma.

and whoever wins this interim fight goes up against whittaker,   they can unify the two meaningless belts into one big meaningless belt.   

 

i remember back in the day you had to actually beat the champion in order to win a title. now theyre just handing belts out like candy.

GSP is too big of a bum to fight a real MW.

 

 

he beat the #1 ranked middleweight fighter in the world at the time - and also the legit champion who wore a belt that was created and competed for from day one.  thats a fact, and you cant argue that.

 

and then ull see guys like whittaker and  romero or rockhold parading around belts that nobodys ever competed for, and were only created to sell pay per view buys

What the fuc do you expect them to do? GSP was never going to defend that belt.

you dont know that.  he had a year to do so. maybe even 2 years if he changed his name to conor mcgregor and gave uncle dana some money.

 

fortunately hes a nice guy, so he decided not to hold the division hostage while he recovers from his illness

You're such a troll, it's not even worth the time. He very obviously had no interest staying at 185. He knew Bisping was his only chance.

up until ufc 213 fell apart and they lost all their big fights,  there was no interim title in the history of the middleweight division.  so they created another title just to have any kind of answer if someone from the media was to ever ask them "Why should i pay $60+ to watch this event?"

 

and now they are doing it all over again.  Look at the UFC 221 card. its hot garbage.  Whittaker vs Rockhold was the only fight on it that people would want to watch.  Now that its off theres absolutely no reason to watch it even if it was free. 

 

So what does the UFC do? they continue turning the sport into a spectacle by bringing in ROIDmero and they create another belt!

 

georges is the real champion.  both in the welterweight and middleweight divisions and until he gets better and returns, thats not going to change. He beat the champions for the real belts. Hes the champ. he doesnt need to physically have a belt still attached to his waist for people to know that.

Wow this MW division 1f648.png!!!

Just when we all thought the MW division was going to be back on track properly this goes and happens...

 

Now wtf is this fight a main event? Really? And for what another interim belt or a #1 contender fight? ?

 

The MW division is still a mess unfortunately and he's just being honest

they may as well create 10 more interim belts for everyone else to parade around in the division and pretend that theyre the champ, and right now it appears thats exactly what theyre doing.  every time a main event falls apart on a chitty card, just create another title!

 

you get an interim belt. and you get an interim belt.  and you get an interim belt.  Oh hi ronda and jose - i guess the first free titles werent enough, so heres another! and you get an interim belt. and you get..

normally i wouldnt even care about all this interim crap, but it bothers me because it makes it take longer for bruce buffer to finish announcing their names, and i just want to see the fight.

The thing is, I'm really not. I respect the history of what he has accomplished. I went to 217 and cheered for him being announced, and when he finished Bisping. I actually like him.

 

I'm just realistic. He's not the Champion because he has no interest in defending. Is Conor still the Featherweight Champion?

I can't stand Weidman, but clearly that's not what he's doing. The division has had 3 champs in the past year avoid title fights for various reasons. That's on par with Comber ducking everyone for over a year.

 

Yoel is going to **** up Luke though
