On Saturday, he defeated Romero again to retain his middleweight title - this time with a bad hand.

In missing weight for UFC 225, Romero became the first fighter in the organisation's history to come in heavy for more than one title fight as the Cuban wrestler weighed in at 187.7lbs for his interim title fight with Luke Rockhold in February. Tuivasa, age 25, has won all seven of his pro fights by knockout or TKO, but the 39-year-old Arlovski will be his toughest opponent yet. It's a rematch of a contest from last July in which Whittaker (20-4) battled through a knee injury to eke out a unanimous 48-47 decision. Whittaker won that meeting in a unanimous decision. "It was absolutely brutal".

After Yoel Romero missed weight for the second consecutive time in a title fight, Bisping sounded off. Romero kept fighting with urgency, but Whittaker kept his distance as best he could jabbing and side-kicking. After a conservative start, Romero dropped Whittaker with a right hand early in the third round. But on this night, Whittaker's win was more about survival; he was lucky to see the end of the fight. Whittaker regained control in the fourth, but Romero landed a hard left and right late in the round.

In the second round, a Whittaker left hand caused some bad swelling on Romero's right eye.

"He hits like a truck", Whittaker said. I know he looks weak, but he has some power. I can tell you that much. He caught me in the fourth, in the fifth, and I was just trying to survive.

"It could have gone either way".


"No. That's it. I feel like I'm an honest guy, I open up a lot to the media, and I'm brutally honest".

That said, their second encounter remains a mouth-watering proposition over five rounds. So, it was anybody's guess.

As a former Olympic wrestler, Romero shouldn't be having trouble making weight.

Regardless of the minor amount of weight, or what really happened backstage between the Illinois Athletic Commission, Romero, his team and the UFC, this is inexcusable.

Instead, Whittaker has the win and the belt, though neither seemed a sure thing as the fight came to its conclusion.
