Online bookmaker sportsbet has opened a market on the expected UFC meeting between Australian Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero.
- Robert Whittaker $1.76 favourite to defeat Yoel Romero
Romero may have been too good for Luke Rockhold yesterday, but the bookie has listed Whittaker as the $1.76 favourite for their bout. Romero is the $2.07 outsider.
Keeping in mind the pair’s last fight went the distance, over 1.5 rounds is the $1.44 favourite in their next meeting.
“As good as Romero was in Perth, Whittaker had his measure when they last met and appears to have the bigger petrol tank. Romero will need to come up with another KO,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
