UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero 2 staff picks and predictions for PPV main card

The Bloody Elbow staff has made its own picks for UFC 225, and I’m not even sure I should be calling this»UFC 225: Whittaker vs. Romero 2.» For the time being, Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero hasn’t yet been cancelled after Romero’s weight reduction, but we know that it’s not to get a title fight. Theoretically this probably needs to be Rafael dos Anjos vs. Colby Covington because the primary event, regardless of the standing of Whittaker vs. Romero.
Anyway, everyone is going with Robert Whittaker over Yoel Romero for Saturday night. In terms of the co-main occasion, just Phil Mackenzie is going with Colby Covington to beat Rafael dos Anjos and eventually become the interim welterweight champion.

Notice: Predictions gathered prior to the event and are entered during the week. Explanations behind each choice are not required and a few writers elect to not do this for their own motives. By way of instance, if Phil Mackenzie entered all of his predictions on Wednesday without adding in any explanations, he has no idea if he is likely to be the only one siding with one fighter for any specific fight.
Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero
Anton Tabuena: Romero will remain harmful, but Whittaker is likely to function as person who has made the most improvements since their first bout. I would’ve picked Whittaker before Romero appearing like passing on the scale, and now I expect a one-sided affair this time. Robert Whittaker by late TKO.
Mookie Alexander: Well Romero. This is presently a non-title bout, and it has three rounds (I’m presuming ). Anyhow, these were my thoughts before the weight miss, and nothing changes . My selection hinges almost entirely on Whittaker not looking depleted after each the health problems that plagued him earlier in the year. His takedown defense is incredible, and even when Romero got him down, he could not hold him there… which was with Whittaker’s knee getting jacked by Romero in the opening around! I don’t think that changes in the rematch, and he struggles at a pace and times his strikes even better than Yoel does. Their very first bout is still the only real time Romero has been outlanded in a UFC fight. I am expecting Romero to combat this one strategically because he did Luke Rockhold. However, Rockhold is a fairly basic and relatively wooden striker, whereas Whittaker cuts throws and angles in penalizing combinations. I know there’s the third-round Romero fear, but do not rule out Whittaker planting Romero with a head kick. The selection is Robert Whittaker by unanimous conclusion, although I’m hoping we get yet another thriller.
