UFC 225 Weigh-in Results: Yoel Romero Misses Weight for Title Fight

He struggled to take Whittaker down in their first fight, however, and the Australian is not expecting much to change. "Everything goes on as usual", UFC president Dana White said. On his second attempt almost two hours later, he hit 185.2. Romero said the commission ended up giving him just one hour, not two, to cut to the weight limit, and he received no explanation for the shortened opportunity.

When James left Game 4 for the last time he bumped fists with some Warriors players, but avoided using his right hand. His eighth appearance in a row didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.

He ascended to the undisputed middleweight championship after claiming the interim belt with a five-round unanimous decision victory over Romero as a minus-125 chalk at UFC 213 that extended his win streak to eight fights going into Saturday night's matchup at the United Center in Chicago.

Expect to see Meghan at a carefully chosen selection of them as she continues her introduction to her new life as a senior royal. After arriving at the palace, the royals assembled on the Buckingham Palace balcony to watch a fly-by by the Royal Air Force.

Romero initially came in at 186lbs and was given an additional hour to get down to 185lbs for the much-anticipated rematch but he could only get as low as 185.2lbs, meaning he was ineligible to fight for the title. He jokingly responded that it's a "long flight" from his home in Australia and added, "I'm fighting somebody". The Cuban missed weight, so the fight will be a non-title event. Meanwhile, the interim welterweight title will be on the line as Rafael dos Anjos (169) finally meets Colby Covington (169) in the co-main event.
