UFC 225: How Can The Promotion Ever Trust Yoel Romero Again?

UFC 225: How Can The Promotion Ever Trust Yoel Romero Again?

When SN talked to Whittaker recently and asked whether he would still take the fight if Romero missed weight again, the middleweight champion, who came in at 185 pounds, made it clear he would not.

Romero originally weighed in at 186 pounds and had two hours to cut to make championship weight.

Romero was supposed to fight Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight title at UFC 221.

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

Whittaker defeated Romero in their first fight last July by unanimous decision at UFC 213 to capture the interim UFC middleweight. "Why would I? I might as well fight someone heavier than me".

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.

"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".

Fighting out of Australia, Whittaker claims to represent both New Zealand and Australia. "I call it like I see it, a racist is a racist".

Gold Coast fighter Megan Anderson makes her debut against Holly Holm, a former champion best known for knocking out Ronda Rousey in Melbourne in 2015.

The lack of depth in the women's featherweight division means a win would put the Australian in title contention.
