Adjust Comment Print

Join us from 10am Sunday (WST) as Australia's Robert Whittaker takes on Yoel Romero in a highly-anticipated UFC middlewight battle. The Cuban missed weight, so the fight will be a non-title event. The bout will take place over five rounds, but Whittaker's title will not be on the line.

UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker's bout against Yoel Romero was reduced to non-title status after the challenger twice failed to make the weight.

Whittaker won the fight by split decision, beating Romero for the second time in as many outings.

He was rocked by Romero again with less than 30 seconds left in the penultimate frame.

Allow Romero a third chance at UFC gold? Since Romero missed weight and was ineligible to win the title, an immediate rubber match seems likely. "Chaos" won the fight largely by outdoing dos Anjos at his own game: employing a relentless, hyper-aggressive wrestling attack against the fence in all five rounds, never appearing to allow "RDA" space or time to breathe.

In his second pro fight, former WWE star CM Punk, a Chicago native, had the crowd chanting his name in the first round, but Punk was unable to show any sense of force in the cage against Mike Jackson (1-1).

And no fighter has ever missed weight for two title fights.
