Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero 2 Prediction
Although we saw this fight in 2015, I still discover it to be an engaging booking.
Robert Whittaker is a great striker with great motion, speed, power and precision. Whittaker is very technical in everything he does and leaves very few holes or openings for his challengers to benefit from. The UFC middleweight champ has an exceptional takedown defense that permits him to execute his exceptional striking video game.
Yoel Romero is quickly the very best professional athlete in MMA. The 41-year-old fighter is an exceptionally embellished wrestler. Romero’s wrestling skills and athleticism permit him to almost take anyone down in the UFC’s middleweight division. Romero likewise has pretty decent boxing. Add his scary power and explosiveness to his stand and you have a harmful striker that can put away anybody at 185 pounds.
Given Romero’s qualities this fight can go either way. Nevertheless, I do believe Whittaker is the more proficient fighter here and the more refined technician too. Likewise, the Cuban fighter didn’t look fantastic on the scale on Friday early morning. I question how much his rough weight cut will impede his performance on Saturday night. If Whittaker is able to prevent Romero’s power, which he’s shown to do in the past, I believe he needs to be able to win a choice.
I believe Romero has a sensational survival instinct and he’s likewise tough as nails. I do not think Whittaker will have the ability to put away the Cuban, however I do think he can out strike him and avoid being controlled in the grappling enough to get a choice triumph.
