WHITTAKER: “My name is Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker. My next scheduled fight is June 9. It’s in Chicago, UFC 225. I am re-matching Yoel Romero. The first fight went five rounds; it was a bit of a war back and forth. I got the upper hand in the later rounds, and came away victorious. My fight style is, you know, I’d like to think unorthodox striking, I’m explosive, I have power, and I am fast. My favorite move is the wonderlands.”
ROMERO: “My nickname is “Soldier of God.” My next opponent is Robert Whittaker; he is the champion right now. This fight is very important because it is the rematch. For the first time when I fought for the interim title, you know. You know it was a very close fight, I lost the fight with the last minute for the last round. And now, I come back. I am thinking, I am born for this. I’m born for the fight.”
WHITTAKER: “The crowd is screaming. The lights are on me. The announcers are calling our names out. There is a lot of tension in the air. There is a lot of nerves, and we are just waiting,
it’s just a waiting game. You know in two minutes you guys are going to be touching gloves, and
the fight is going to be on.”
ROMERO: “I work very hard for this fight, and I take the victory, believe me.”
WHITTAKER: “Expect me to bring an exciting fight, if you’re a fan of mine, you already know what I am bringing to the table. I am an exciting fighter, I go in there and I am explosive, I try to keep it standing. I am a striker, and you know that’s my game, that’s what I am doing. I am going to go in there, and I am going to look for the finish for twenty five minutes. It was a hard first fight, it was tough, close, but I think I have his one, and put him away.”
