UFC 225 could be the best MMA occasion we have seen in quite a while — imagining injuries or weight-cutting problems don’t rear their ugly heads. The card features a massive middleweight bout, as Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero rematch following their highly competitive bout last year while Rafael dos Anjos looks to accomplish history against Colby Covington.
With a remarkably profound card stuffed with former title challengers in the top to base, making bets could be hard. Don’t worry, I am here to provide you with all the forecasts and betting odds for UFC 225 on June 9.

Robert Whittaker vs Yoel Romero
Whittaker (-260) is one of the most well-rounded fighters in the world. “The Reaper” prefers to strike and can judge distance nicely despite being relatively short in stature to the branch. He’ll continuously throw jabs and kicks to keep the appropriate space until he can burst inside with his speed and unleash powerful mixes. Whittaker is one of the best defensive grapplers from the sport, using a takedown defense over 86 percent. He generally defends takedowns owing to his movement and space management but you saw in the first fight with Romero his unwillingness to give up a takedown without maximum effort from his competitor.
There are no definite holes in Whittaker’s game. He is hittable as a result of his desire to push the pace but he’s not bad defensively. He’s not an ace concerning offensive wrestling however he could compete if he receives top control.
Romero (+200) is an athletic marvel. Despite being 41 years old, he’s got the speed and athleticism that many fighters can only dream about. He’s parlayed this well in the striking game, as he floats around till he can burst forwards in a flurry of bombs. He could be a little tentative at the striking game, but this implies he could pace his cardio. “The Soldier of God” is also an Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling. Much like his striking, Romero explodes into takedown efforts which make it extremely hard for his rival to prevent him. If Romero gets on top and begins working ground and pound, most competitions are complete.
Romero gasses. There are no 2 ways about ithis entire style is constructed around controlled bursts of energy to speed out his cardio as far as possible. We saw in the initial Whittaker battle, he gassed himself by always trying the takedown — he did control himself better in his most recent bout vs Luke Rockhold.
Romero has begun to address some of his problems with his cardio, which makes him dangerous. But Whittaker fought the very first battle on a badly broken leg and was able to use aggression in the striking game and excellent takedown defense to win. A healthy Whittaker should only look.
