“Yes, obviously [I attempted to utilize leg kicks], however he didn’t give me the open door,” Romero clarified. “When I would attempt to do a similar side kick to the leg, he would switch his leg, and I was risking staying in his [striking] protect, inside reach of his hands.”
Whittaker is relied upon to go ahead to confront Michael Bisping in an offered to bind together the UFC middleweight title sooner rather than later. Romero clarified that he would like to come back to activity soon.
