Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero
Whittaker (-260) is among the most well-rounded fighters in the world. “The Reaper” prefers to attack and is able to gauge distance well despite being relatively short in stature to the division. He will continuously throw jabs and kicks to maintain the appropriate distance until he can explode inside with his speed and unleash powerful mixes. Whittaker is among the most effective defensive grapplers from the game, using a takedown defense over 86 percent. He typically defends takedowns due to his movement and distance management but you saw from the initial battle with Romero his unwillingness to give up a takedown without maximum effort from his opponent.
There are no clear holes in Whittaker’s game. He is hittable due to his desire to push the speed but he is not bad defensively. He’s not an ace concerning offensive wrestling but he can compete if he gets top control.
Romero (+200) is an athletic marvel. Regardless of being 41 years old, he’s got the speed and athleticism that many fighters may only dream about. He has parlayed this nicely in the game that is magnificent, as he floats around until he could explode forwards in a flurry of bombs. He could be a little tentative at the striking match, but this means that he could pace his cardio. “The Soldier of God” is also an Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling. Much like his striking, Romero explodes into takedown attempts that make it extremely difficult for his rival to prevent him. If Romero gets on top and starts working ground and pound, then most competitions are done.
Romero gasses. There are no two ways about ithis entire style is built around controlled bursts of energy to pace his cardio out as far as possible. We saw in the initial Whittaker battle, he gassed himself by constantly trying the takedown — but he did control himself better in his most recent bout versus Luke Rockhold.
Romero has begun to deal with some of his issues with his cardio, which makes him dangerous. However, Whittaker fought the very first fight on a badly broken leg and was still able to use aggression from the game and superb takedown defense to win. A healthy Whittaker should look.
