Video: Robert Whittaker believes Yoel Romero will fall like everyone else

As we’ve come to expect from Robert Whittaker, the Aussie is respectfully confident ahead of his interim title fight showdown with top ranked Yoel Romero next month.

Whittaker (18-4) took his win streak to an impressive seven when he upset Ronaldo Souza in April, overwhelming the Brazilian with strikes in the second round. Although the 26 year-old Aussie remains respectful ahead of the biggest fight in his career, talking with Submission Radio recently, he’s also predicting the fight with Romero (12-1) will end in a similar fashion.

Before he gets to me to do his wrestling he’s got to get past my hands and feet, you know but he’s a tough dude in saying that, he’s very tough dude. He’s got a really tight skill set and like you said, he’s been competing at the highest level for years. So you know it’s gonna be a really tough fight.

I think I’m going to hit him too much, I think it’s going to be too much damage and I think he’s going to fall like everyone else.

Whittaker vs. Romero for the interim middleweight title is set for the co-main event of UFC 213 at T-Mobile Arena on July 8 (July 9 in Australia).
