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

The Cuban has tipped the scales before, last time in February for a fight in Perth.

The big story thus far this week was the fact that Romero missed weight on Friday (June 8, 2018) for his rematch against UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in the main event of the upcoming UFC 225 pay-per-view event.

The card, which is one of the most stacked the promotion has had in some time if all goes off according to plan (that is, everyone makes weight) takes place at United Center in Chicago.

His first attempt was made at 186 pounds, and at his second attempt, he was still.2 pounds over the mark.

No title fight for the main event but talks are ongoing about salvaging the fight.

But German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the European Union members attending the summit all agreed it should not happen. Just hours before attending the summit, Trump tweeted about rectifying "unfair Trade Deals with the G-7 countries".

"I missed weight but the situation is very complicated", Romero said. However, Romero is no longer eligible to win the title.

"The last fight with him, 25 minutes I was trying to finish him", Whittaker said.

Now fully healthy, Whittaker will be aiming to lift his professional MMA record to 20-4 with a second straight victory over Romero, the No. 1 contender in the UFC middleweight division.

However, Whittaker posted to Twitter following the weigh-in, with his message all but confirming his intention to fight Romero. Under the rules of the Illinois State Athletic Commission, Romero was allowed two hours to cut one pound.

Earlier this year, Romero weighed in at 187.7 pounds for a fight with Luke Rockhold for the interim belt. I don't even know how that's [missing weight] a thing?
