While it hasn’t been long since Robert Whittaker first defeated Yoel Romero at UFC 213, it seems like forever ago.

A lot has went down, but the more things change, the more they stay the same. Whittaker still holds the UFC middleweight…

“[Yoel] Romero is a hard fight. It was a war the first time. It’s definitely up there as one of my hardest fights to date, one of the hardest fights mentally due to getting injured in the first round and having to get through it all. He’s such a tough competitor, he’s such a good athlete and such a good fighter.”
