Question About Rob vs Romero Outcome ...

Recommended Posts

Ok, so if Romero wins, he is not eligible to become the champ. Easy to understand.

 

However, if Romero wins, does that means that the MW title will be vacant or Rob keeps the belt even if he loses ?

 

Valeu, seus latas!

It’s a non-title fight, so Whittaker remains the champ regardless.

even though we all know who the real champ will be lol

This is so dumb. So if Rob wins then he's still champ and we have to wait for a trilogy fight to happen??

If Rob wins there is no trilogy.

 

It's going to be annoying when Romero wins and we have to see this chit again

There is a small chance that yoel moves Up and challenges cormier...that would be a sick fight actually

Good for Rob BUT that a dumb main event tho

Would you rather the fight get scrapped? I've been looking forward to this one so personally I would have been pissed if it got cancelled, although I wouldnt blame Robert.

 

To me it doesnt really matter if the belts on the line or not, should still be a sick fight.

What will the ufc do if Romero wins? He was over .2 lbs for Christ sakes. Very odd situation.

Yeah, Whittaker, because he made weight.

So if Yoel beats Rob (yeah he could happen lets be serious for a moment) then what ?

 

Rob defends it against someone else or fights Romero as a trilogy ?

I would normally say they definitely milk the match up for a 3rd fight but with this weight business it might be too risky

Whittaker will still get a title defense on his record if he wins right?

Nope

 

It's not a title fight, so no title defense.

 

Same thing happened to Matt Hughes. Riggs didn't make weight and his fight with Royce was at a catchweight so he didn't get a defense added despite winning both fights. A Silva as well when Lutter missed weight. He would have 11 defenses instead.

If Romero finishes Rob then I wanna see what baldy will do.

 

There is no way New FC wont milk a 3rd fight even if they have to put as a co main event in some other card

but if Holloway was able to win the title against Pettis who missed weight, then why doesn't Whittaker get a title defense?

 

...not sure if serious.

 

That was for an interim title to basically save that card.  Holloway was not a champion.

Agree.

 

That was a scenario completely different from tonight

The thing is, the fighter who made weight shouldn't be penalized

That's just the way it is.  It's not a championship fight.  It happened to Matt Hughes and Anderson Silva.  There was a reason Anderson was ready to kill Lutter at the weigh ins.

Sure do, Whittaker. 

 

You can't be the champ of a weight you can't make.
