UFC 225: Yoel Romero misses weight for title fight with Robert Whittaker

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

He was scheduled to fight for the UFC Middleweight title on Saturday against Robert Whittaker. All other fighters on the card made weight.

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

The main event at UFC 225 has been thrown into serious doubt after Cuban challenger Yoel Romero twice missed weight for his slated middleweight title fight with Robert Whittaker.

Whittaker started the final round well, but Romero again floored him and dominated the last three minutes of the fight, finally enjoying some success with his ground game and scoring some takedowns.

Justify's jockey, Mike Smith, has called Belmont one of his favorite tracks and is confident that he Justify will come out on top. Gronkowski was a bit green in the stretch, changing leads several times under Jose Ortiz, but ran well to finish second.

In the second round, a Whittaker left hand caused some awful swelling on Romero's right eye. As a result of Romero missing weight, Rockhold could only win the interim title if he won the fight. Between the swelling and his lack of conditioning, Romero fought with more urgency in the third round and cut loose a right hand that sent the champion careening to the canvas.

Whittaker, of Australia, survived the third, despite an onslaught of offense from Romero.

However, Whittaker posted to Twitter following the weigh-in, with his message all but confirming his intention to fight Romero.

"It's very hard. We come here to fight for the title", Romero said.

This card featured five current and former UFC champions in front of a sold-out United Center crowd.

The ringside doctor let Romero fight on, despite his eye, and it led to one of the most entertainingly brutal rounds of the year to date.

In the co-main event, Colby Covington (-130) is a narrow, nominal favorite against Rafael dos Anjos (+110) as they vie for the interim welterweight title. Anderson, who exited Invicta Fighting Championships on four straight wins, drops her Octagon debut, while Holm rebounded from her last bout, a decision loss to UFC featherweight champion Cristiane Justino. Jackson peppered Punk (0-2) with punches to the face throughout the fight and won in a lacklustre unanimous decision.
