I think it was borderline 10-9/8. Romero dropped him, had him hurt several times, controlled the grappling and the Octagon. Most importantly, Whittaker was completely defensive and trying to survive the round. At least in Round Three he answered back, hit Romero with wicked shots and stayed even for most of the round after being hurt. In the fifth, if you subtract out the shots that staggered or hurt Whittaker, Romero wins. If you just look st striking. Romero wins. If you just look at grappling, Romero wins. Easily, in all aspects. Is it all enough to be 10-8? Don’t know, but the fact that I’d be fine with someone scoring it that wsy says thete’s at least a solid argument there, though not as clear-cut or definitive as Romero supporters claim.
