This is the second consecutive fight in which Romero has missed weight.
Whittaker said: "I have a great team and a great staff". His run also featured six knockout victories and four bonuses, including the Performance of the Night following his third-round KO of former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman that paid out on plus-175 odds at UFC 205.
