Yoel Romero Misses Weight And Won’t Fight For Championship At UFC225

UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker says he is in best shape ever before his UFC return bout with Yoel Romero

Rockhold took to Twitter after Romero failed to make the weight upon the second attempt, and with one simple two-letter tweet, made his feelings crystal clear on the matter.

The two combatants met at UFC 213 last summer for the interim middleweight belt when Whittaker defeated Romero in a closely contested battle via a unanimous decision.

The 27-year-old's lengthy 11-month absence from the octagon resulted from a knee injury that sidelined him for the second half of 2017, and a subsequent staph infection that proved serious enough to force him to withdraw from a scheduled title clash with former champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.

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

Whittaker said: "I have a great team and a great staff". Romero won via third round knockout.

In laymen's terms, if one were to bet $1 on Mike Jackson they could win an additional.53 cents; however, if a $1 bet was placed on a winning CM Punk, the bettor would take home an additional $1.55.

"It's very hard. We come here to fight for the title", Romero said. "Why would I? I might as well fight someone heavier than me".

Chief among the issues was Saturday's UFC 225 main event.

Explosive Sydney heavyweight Tai Tuivasa weighed in nearly five and a half kilos heavier than former world champion Andrei Arlovski.
