The Reaper Reaps Once More...
UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker’s nickname “The Reaper” hides a talent that has largely been a secret from UFC audiences.
Nutrition is a critical part of keeping a middleweight champion title. Muscle Meals Direct has assisted with Rob's recovery, by keeping him energized, healthy and able to have family time. We received an appreciation message from Rob's partner, Sofia.
"Not only are you amazing for Rob, but you are amazing for our whole family" - Sofia Maree Whittaker.
Whittaker defeated Romero last July in Las Vegas, by winning the late rounds, to become the UFC interim middleweight champion. When St-Pierre vacated the title after his win over Michael Bisping due to health concerns, Whittaker was elevated to undisputed status.
”I’m 100-percent right now,” Whittaker said. “I’ve gotten some of the best weeks of training. I really believe when I step into the Octagon in June, you’ll see the best version of Robert Whittaker ever.”
The finish set Romero up to be the next challenger to Whittaker, and according “The Solider of God” on today’s edition of the “JRE MMA Show” podcast, the rematch is set for UFC 225, which takes place June 9 at United Center in Chicago. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the full lineup and bout order haven’t been finalized.
