Rogan talking about a third fight if I am Whittaker's management I would be like hell no we aren't fighting that monster again we beat twice! Be great as a fan, I am doubtful we will see it again. As too Whittaker raising is hands after the fight that is what you should always do in a decision situation.
I don't know where Romero goes from here he is in that unfortunate position of being the number one contender who has lost to the champ twice, he also has the weight issue to deal with. Talk of him going up to 205, to go up to a division 20 pounds north of where you have been competing to face people who are probably cutting from 225-240 lbs at 41 is a huge request.
No he didn't lose , he won , the decision doesn't matter, we saw the truth
I am sure in the record books there will be an asterisks by the fight saying you saw the truth and Romero won even though the record points to Whittaker as the winner. You can disagree with the judges opinion but the reality is your opinion doesn't matter theirs does, so it will be shown as a win for Whittaker.
