It looks like Yoel Romero will get his second shot at middleweight champion Robert Whittaker as part of the UFC 225 card in Chicago on June 9.
While the matchup was previously reported as in the works for the card, Romero confirmed the date for the highly anticipated rematch when appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast on Monday.
“I was preparing myself but not preparing myself correctly for how I was going to fight,” Romero said.
When asked if UFC 225 was the landing spot for his fight with Whittaker, Romero answered “yes” which confirms the plans the organization has made for the middleweight title bout to take place in Chicago.
