UFC 225: Whittaker vs Romero 2 preview, at long last (Heavy Hands #214)

The UFC’s spring schedule really tested our resolve, but we finally made it. Connor and Pat break down the upcoming rematch between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero, and more.

The spring schedule has been a drag, in the sense that mustering any excitement for these cards has felt very much like wearing a plastered-on grin while being dragged through a field of thorns. But hey, our suffering is over, at long last. UFC 225 is here, and with it, a whole slate of intriguing and meaningful fights. This week on Heavy Hands, topics include:

- The rematch between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero, whose first fight was a tactical war of epic proportions

- All of our hopes and dreams resting on Rafael dos Anjos’ capable shoulders

- Holly Holm as a stiff test for the still-relatively-untested Meeeeegan Anderson

- Seriously, RDA, please send Colby Covington to the netherworld
