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

Yoel Romero Daniel Cormier

As Jeff Horn vies for boxing glory in Las Vegas on Sunday, Whittaker will lead an Australian invasion of UFC 225 in Chicago.

Romero missed weight by 0.2lbs overnight - his second straight failed weight cut - removing the title from the equation.

"The main event is on".

The path to UFC 225 has been winding, to say the least.

Despite missing weight, Romero was able to score a knockout win over Rockhold.

Earlier this year, Romero weighed in at 187.7 pounds for a fight with Luke Rockhold for the interim belt. However, Romero is no longer eligible to win the title.

Now recovered from a staph infection and a nasty case of chickenpox, Whittaker is ready to get back in the Octagon with the "Soldier of God". Whittaker, who is defending his belt, would be the only fighter capable of winning/retaining the title on the night if the fight goes ahead.




"He's a tough guy and then I got exhausted and he was still tough but I wasn't hitting as hard".

"I've been preparing for this fight, bro", Whittaker told Romero.

The two fighters were introduced and faced off at the ceremonial weigh-ins later Friday.

"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". Tuivasa, age 25, has won all seven of his pro fights by knockout or TKO, but the 39-year-old Arlovski will be his toughest opponent yet.

Fighting out of Australia, Whittaker claims to represent both New Zealand and Australia.

The NZ born UFC middleweight champion comforted Yoel Romero and confirmed that their fight is still on after the Cuban missed weight by 90 grams. "I call it like I see it, a racist is a racist". 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.
