Whittaker favoured in non-title rematch with Romero for UFC 225

UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different. But after Romero missed weight Friday, the title will no longer be on the line. From the casual observer drawn in by the big name to the purist attracted to great tactical fights to the action-seeker wanting fireworks from the opening bell, the UFC has its fan base covered.

Join us from 10am Sunday (WST) as Australia's Robert Whittaker takes on Yoel Romero in a highly-anticipated UFC middlewight battle.

Whittaker's jab and lead hook peppered Romero's face and head, and the low kicks chopped at his base, as well. Two judges scored the contest 48-47 for Whittaker, while a third had it 48-47 for Romero. Now, he's back in the octagon against Romero, looking to cement his place atop the middleweight ranks. Whittaker blocked a left hand.

When SN talked to Whittaker recently and asked whether he would still take the fight if Romero missed weight again, the middleweight champion, who came in at 185 pounds, made it clear he would not. Dos Anjos (28-9) has been superb in his three fights since moving up from the lightweight division.

Holly Holm fights Megan Anderson in a bout that could determine women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg's next opponent. Tuivasa believers should probably expect another quick knockout, while skeptics might look at a safe play on Arlovski dragging out the fight and testing the younger artist's staying power.
