Whittaker v Romero, full card, updates, result, video

Posted on

ROBERT Whittaker is joining Jeff Horn on a mission in the US this morning to prove Aussie battlers can strike gold twice.

The UFC middleweight champion goes up against Cuban wrestler Yoel Romero in their highly anticipated rematch. While Romero’s faulty weight cut left the championship stakes out of the equation, each fighter will be competing for pride.

Aussie heavyweight gun Tai Tuivasa joins Whittaker in Chicago to fight Andrei Arlovski after former WWE star CM Punk makes his anticipated UFC return in a bout against Mike Jackson.
