Romero misses weight for UFC 225 main event

Yoel Romero Daniel Cormier UFC 225 Full Official Weigh-in Video: Whittaker Makes the Mark; Romero Does Not

Whittaker won the first match-up with Romero at UFC 213 last July, wearing him down over the course of five rounds to take a unanimous decision and the interim UFC middleweight title. The Cuban missed weight, so the fight will be a non-title event.

The fight will still take place, and Whittaker will retain his title if he wins.

Romero weighed in at 185.2 for his middleweight title main event against Robert Whittaker at UFC 225, stripping the bout of its championship implications and proving yet again that Romero isn't quite the professional he should be.

Whittaker won the fight by split decision, beating Romero for the second time in as many outings.

In the second round, a Whittaker left hand caused some bad swelling on Romero's right eye.


Allow Romero a third chance at UFC gold? "Making weight sucks. But you can't miss weight twice on two title fights and still think you're running the show".

Whittaker has landed at least one knockdown in six of his 12 career UFC fights, while Romero has had at least one in six of his 11 starts in UFC and Strikeforce. The main event is positioned on top of arguably the most exciting card of action the UFC have put together this year.

Bisping continued, saying he believes the Illinois Athletic Commission should have given Romero more time to get down to 185, adding "Forgive me for being crude, but you can go to the bathroom and get rid of that (0.2 pounds) pretty quick".

Renowned for producing explosive moments after being seemingly passive, Romero did just that in the third to change the momentum of the fight. Romero is calculating with his strikes, and when he lands one, it hurts.

This card featured five current and former UFC champions in front of a sold-out United Center crowd. Also, Rafael dos Anjos will fight controversial up-and-comer Colby Covington in the interim welterweight fight. All three judges scored it 29-28.
