Robert Whittaker stopped by the TMZ studio for some interview time and to tell some stories. He’s also there to promote the new season of TUF, which airs tomorrow night. He’s coaching alongside Kelvin Gastelum and the two are making the world tour to promote the show. The hosts really have a thing for Yoel Romero and he is the subject throughout most of it.
Whittaker actually tells a funny story regarding Romero, sort of. He revealed that he’d rather fight Yoel Romero and someone else every Saturday, then do what he did the last time he came over from Australia. He had a 15-hour flight and had three children under the age of 3 with him.
That sounds terrible and even worse, he was sitting in economy. I get it, Mr. Whittaker. While getting punched in the face by Romero sounds better, it’s not by much.
Now, just imagine how the people sitting around you felt for 15 hours.
