Whittaker opened strong, immediately attacking Romero’s lead leg with side kicks before establishing a solid jab. Romero uncharacteristically held his hands up in guard for the majority of the round, content to sit back and let Whittaker bring the fight to him, which the champion did. By the end of the opening round, Whittaker’s jab was stinging and his lead-leg sidekicks were starting to land more squarely.

The sequel was an instant classic. While Robert Whittaker outlasted Yoel Romero over five brutal rounds in the UFC 225 headliner on Saturday night, there were no losers in Chicago. Both combatants battled through adversity at various times to put on a memorable show, but it was reigning 185-pound king Whittaker who emerged with a contentious split-decision triumph.

Matches to Make After UFC 225

Whether you approach him with love, hate or indifference, Colby Covington has entered a new competitive stratosphere in the Ultimate Fighting Championship . The polarizing American Top Team standout executed repeated takedowns and captured the interim welterweight title with a five-round unanimous decision over Rafael dos Anjos in the UFC 225 co-headliner on Saturday at the United Center in Chicago. All three cageside judges scored it for Covington, awarding him marks of 49-46, 48-47 and 48-47. Covington took down Dos Anjos seven times in the 25-minute battle: twice in the first round, twice in the second, once in the fourth and twice more in the fifth. It provided the difference in a fight that was otherwise closely contested. According to FightMetric figures, the top-shelf welterweights split the striking categories. Covington outlanded his counterpart 142-130 in total strikes, while dos Anjos held a narrow 105-99 margin in significant strikes. In the aftermath of UFC 225 “Whittaker vs. Romero 2,” here are five matches that ought to be made: Related » UFC 225: By the Numbers Colby Covington vs.

Holm landed a few nice elbows from the top, but Anderson got her feet on the cage and wall-walked her way back to a standing position.

Jeff Horn No Match for Terence Crawford

“He didn’t seem like the smaller guy, that’s for sure.” – @JeffHornBoxer #CrawfordHorn pic.twitter.com/XaTZnxpFVE — Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) June 10, 2018 Only a month ago the boxing world was convinced that Vasily Lomachenko was the best fighter in the world, the pound-for-pound king who would reign unrivaled as the best prizefighter in the world for years to come. Tonight, Terence Crawford challenged that narrative in being completely unchallenged by Jeff Horn . In his first ever fight at welterweight (147), Crawford thoroughly dominated Horn, winning every round and flooring the Australian en route to a 9th-round TKO victory. The fight was never close, as Crawford staggered Horn with a straight left hand from a southpaw stance almost immediately, setting the tone for a night where Horn’s toughness and courage would be commended but his ring skills wouldn’t. For the rest of the fight, Crawford showboated, switched stances, and consistently landed clean, hard punches on his far slower opponent before finally forcing referee Robert Byrd to stop the fight by teeing off on Horn after he got up from a knockdown.

Ex-champ Rashad Evans, undecided on retirement, 'at peace' with KO loss

At one time FIGHTING was bigger than LIFE. Now LIFE is bigger than FIGHTING. It was easy to FIGHT for me because I came into this world raising hell FIGHTING. Then LIFE over time swaddled me like a parent does a screaming child and calmed me until I could see there was nothing to scream about. LIFE reveals to us all one day its beauty and its GRACE. Part of its beauty and GRACE is SURRENDER. Not SURRENDER in the way we think but a yielding nature that allows LIFE’S true beauty to be seen without non attachment. Only through non attachment can we truly see the beauty of LIFE and its random but beautiful balance. Our attachments in LIFE gives us the pain that make LIFE unbearable at times. Those attachments keeps us all pretending to some degree even though we are scared to death of what tomorrow can bring. I am at peace at what happened last night. I am a true FIGHTER at heart and there is no greater peace than when I get a chance to bare my soul for millions to see. 24 times I was successful and I experienced heights I never would’ve dreamed were possible and 8 times I came up short.

31 UFC 225 ‘Whittaker vs. Romero 2’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Rashad Coulter vs. Chris de la Rocha Round 1 De La Rocha shoots an early single-leg, can't get it going, then comes back up to whiff on a left hook. He clinches up, pushing Coulter against the fence, but it's Coulter doing damage in the clinch with a hard knee to the gut. Coulter escapes the tie-up and clips de la Rocha with a left, but he makes a mistake as he gets caught throwing a knee and is driven to the ground. De La Rocha tries a guillotine as he lands in full mount, then releases the headlock and drops a few punches. Coulter gives up his back and fights off a short choke from de la Rocha, who's sporting a cut above his right eye from Coulter's earlier left hand. Coulter spins around to escape back-mount, stands up and immediately blasts de la Rocha with a heavy right hand, then a left. Coulter backs up to give himself some space from de la Rocha, whose face is even bloodier after Coulter's last combination. De La Rocha is swinging back, though, and Coulter looks to be fading early as he backs up to the fence with his hands by his waist. It may have been a bit of rope-a-dope, as Coulter soon puts de la Rocha on the retreat with some windmilling punches.

Tyron Woodley Responds to Colby Covington: ‘You Were and Always Will Be My Warm-Up Round’

It appears now that Tyron Woodley is ready to answer Colby Covington ’s challenge – not that he has much of a choice anymore. Covington claimed the interim welterweight crown with a with a five-round verdict over Rafael dos Anjos in the UFC 225 co-main event at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday night. Covington, who has been angling with a matchup with Woodley for quite some time, continued to target the undisputed 170-pound king after the victory. “This moment is exactly what I dreamed of. This is what I’ve been saying all week, to all the media, to all the fans. This is my moment and nobody can say anything about it. I’m the new money fight in UFC,” Covington said. “Tell Tyron Woodley that his time is up. This is the real belt. He was supposed to be the one fighting me tonight and he wouldn’t show up. I’m the welterweight champion. I’m the new king here.” Woodley, who was last seen taking a five-round verdict over Demian Maia at UFC 214 in July, didn’t take long to respond to his antagonist and onetime American Top Team stablemate.
