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

Robert Whittaker is prepared to go to the depths of exhaustion to overcome Yoel Romero once more and stamp his authority on the UFC middleweight championship.

As a result, New Zealand-fighter Whittaker will have to wait to defend his title after last fighting nearly a year ago in July.

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

UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different.

Play was suspended due to fading light, with Russian Daria Kasatkina leading 7-6 (5) 3-3 against second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki. No. 10 seed Sloane Stephens awaits the victor in the quarterfinals after downing Anett Kontaveit 6-2, 6-0.

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

"I came for a five round fight, I travelled very far to fight", he said.

But Whittaker has agreed to save the main event and face him in a non-title bout.

Whittaker said: "I have a great team and a great staff". "Why would I? I might as well fight someone heavier than me".

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.

He struggled to take Whittaker down in their first fight, however, and the Australian is not expecting much to change. But yeah, I just don't see it. The powerful but inexperienced-with-grappling Anderson, at 6-foot tall to Holm's 5-foot-8, will come in with a significant reach advantage and that might help her with wearing down Holm.
