Nope. Whittaker has already beaten him on one leg.
Winch will make it even bigger once Romero demolishes him "healthy"
Winch? You think Romero is going to show up so badly overweight that they have to literally winch him up on the scale? I guess it's possible.
Gay as fuck
Who needs to make weight when you win!
What would you fucking goofs prefer then?
Interim Belt IS meaningless
This fight should never have been for the belt. Just a 5 round main event
lol... why even make weight for interim belts..
Depends on what the current interim-weight rankings look like - with Romero as champ, who's the next contender in that division?
Whittaker is already back in the gym. They had no business jumping the gun and putting an interim belt on the line.
This, Jacare should get the shot even if he's ranked slightly lower, at least it's a fresh matchup. The first Whittaker-Romero fight was boring, I don't care to watch that again. But Jacare is even less popular than Romero so he gets shafted and so do MMA fans.
When is the interim belt not meaningless?
Renan Barao, Tony Ferguson
It makes sense. Yoel is the clear Number 1 contender. Plus, he and Robert both need time to heal. So, they are on the same schedule.
According to the UFC, Yoel is the most successful MW since 2013. So, all the people who like to yell "meritocracy and deserve" should have no problems with this match-up. Unless there is an Elephant in The Room issue of course.
Plus, Yoel just annihilated Luke Rockhold, who was getting ready for a title fight.
I want to see Gastelum get a crack at Romero or Whitaker. I feel like he'd take out Weidman in a rematch too.
Luke's next fight should be a Vitor rematch. I think Vitor still has enough left in his tank for one more explosive assault, and Luke's chin will shatter like glass when he touches it.
Rewarding fighters that miss weight in title fights...
Makes sense. He just doesn't get the extra interim champion pay. Shouldn't be punished further for failing to perform their retarded weight cutting ritual on short-ish notice.
It’s funny I almost said except for LW... forgot about BW.
