UFC 213, Romero vs. Whittaker: Post Bout Fallouts, Breakdown, and Outline


Whittaker Vs Romero was an assorted wrestling event formed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). This Fighting Championship had declared a fighting week from 5 July, Wednesday and is located in T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. However, the main event was supposed to be a defending match between the bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko in the same venue at Las Vegas metropolitan area on July 8, 2017.

However, Romero led the first two round but Whittaker’s mind-blowing takedown defense was all to watch for. My Goodness! Despite Whittaker being in a trouble with his left leg, His brilliant knock down shots pursued him that well-deserved unanimous win. There was always a damn fear of Romero not getting his signature third round finish and Whittaker just caught him there on the feet. Romero might have lost the gold yet I have not lost interest to watch him fight again. He is an ace.
