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

Yoel Romero Daniel Cormier

CHICAGO - UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero missed weight Friday for his fight against champion Robert Whittaker at UFC 225 on Saturday at United Center. "Why would I? I might as well fight someone heavier than me".

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.

Because of failing to make weight, Romero will not be eligible to win the title.

Earlier this year, Romero weighed in at 187.7 pounds for a fight with Luke Rockhold for the interim belt.

"Walking away at this point you know I have a job to do and I have been doing it professionally so far and I'm just worrying about me".

Golden State Warriors Win NBA Championship, Beat Cavs 108-85
The Warriors led by as many as 25 points in Game 4 and never trailed after taking a 44-43 lead with 5:44 left in the first half. At the end of the day, the Warriors and Curry are the champions, so an additional award doesn't seem to matter much to them.

Whittaker, despite being encumbered by a leg injury, won by unanimous decision when the two squared off in the Octagon at UFC 213 in July 2017.

Title contender Yoel Romero is not happy with the IL commission.

"He is too tough, he hits too hard and he's too good".

The Australian has finished opponents on four occasions during his win streak, and has earned Performance of the Night bonuses with each of his past three knockout wins, including a second-round TKO of Ronaldo Souza as a plus-225 bet at UFC on Fox 24.

The Cuban has tipped the scales before, last time in February for a fight in Perth. The powerful but inexperienced-with-grappling Anderson, at 6-foot tall to Holm's 5-foot-8, will come in with a significant reach advantage and that might help her with wearing down Holm.
