Romero lost a UFC interim middleweight title bout to Robert Whittaker via decision, July 8.
What a fight this was. Whittaker hurt his knee early on but was able to continue to press on. Whittaker went on to win the fight and the interim title via decision. After the fight he praised champion Michael Bisping, but Bisping didn’t have any of it. The champion threw his belt at his potential challenger, and it appears as if the fight is set.
