Romero reveals Whittaker rematch

Romero (13-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC) announced the middleweight title fight against Whittaker (19-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC), which had been previously reported by ESPN.com and BJPenn.com, on today's edition of the "JRE MMA Show" podcast with UFC commentator Joe Rogan.

After Georges St-Pierre vacated the 185-pound title, interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was then promoted to undisputed champion. He botched his weight cut and came in almost three pounds over the contracted limit, but after Rockhold accepted the fight, Romero put on a dazzling performance that ended with fight-ending strikes in the third round.

On his knockout of Luke Rockhold: "After the [Whittaker] fight, my manager said that when he saw me I had a big smile on my face". "I was very happy". The people that have fought with me, if they want to be honest and we're not even talking about if they won or loss, we're talking about the gas, if it's as easy to get that rhythm going. [I was happy because] I learned.

When Whittaker recently pulled out from his first title defence against Luke Rockhold in February, Romero replaced him, knocking out the rangy Rockhold in the third round. I learned about timing. They controlled my attacks, so I learned when to attack. So I had to learn to pace myself. "I don't have a problem with five rounds now". Do you think that Romero has a good shot at beating the new middleweight champion this time around in their rematch?
