The split decision victory of Whittaker kicked started the discussions about a potential third fight between the two but the Middleweight champion is apparently not interested.

Whittaker currently holds two wins over Romero and he pushed the case when asked about a trilogy fight.

“When Joe Rogan asked me in the Octagon the other night, he said ‘rubber match,’ for one, I had never heard the term rubber match so he caught me off guard. On second, I just beat the boogeyman of the division twice, back-to-back. I don’t see how the division or the UFC can get the champion to fight one guy who, on both occasions doesn’t make weight for a championship fight back to back to back. I’m not fighting Yoel Romero forever,” he said on the MMA Hour.

Whittaker is only one of two fighters that have defeated Romero.
