    Looks like The Romero-Whitaker Interim title fight might happen.




    With Bisping injured, UFC will ‘probably’ book Yoel Romero vs Robert Whittaker interim title fight

    Reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Michael Bisping was expected to defend his 185-pound title against former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre.



    Sounded good in theory.

    But practice proved to be much different, as “The Count” is still struggling to recover from knee surgery while “Rush” is busy playing phone tag with United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

    Promotion president Dana White is tired of waiting around.

    "We're trying to put together that Bisping-Romero fight," White told ESPN.com. "If [Bisping] can't fight this summer, we'll probably create an interim title between Romero and Robert Whittaker."



    Good luck with that Romero fight.

    Whittaker — who already has the champ’s blessing — smashed former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo Souza at UFC on FOX 24 last month to insert himself into the very short list of title contenders.

    Sorry, Luke.

    Looks like Dana was serious about the Bisping- Romero fight and made mention of GSP fighting at 170 who ever the champ is there...good stuff if true.

    Lets hope this is all true. Might finally get everything moving in the right direction again........I still don't take anything Dana says as done/true though.

    Dana is a bold face liar...can't believe anything he says anymore.....so is Bisping for that matter

    I think Romero would be a stand-up guy to take this Whitaker fight, and I'd respect him if he did, but that's a dangerous gamble...

    I don't think he has much choice really, either fight for what I assume will be an interim title or sit and wait for the division to work itself out......and that will likely take at least another 12 months

    Yep, Romero last fought in Nov so if he had to wait for The GSP-Bisping fight he could be out up to 18 months, But assuming the GSP fight is off he can now fight in the summer and then again towards the end of the year depending on Bisping's "injury". Good move by Dana this fight has been getting a lot of flak by fans and many fighters were pissed off about it.

    Dana said it was in an interview with espn, but of course Bisping hasn't been contacted about it but he said GSP next fight would be at 170....I wouldn't say its 100% official because what Dana says isn't always what Dana does.
