Romero misses weight for UFC 225 main event

UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker says he is in best shape ever before his UFC return bout with Yoel Romero

The 41-year-old Cuban failed to hit the middleweight championship mark of 185 on Friday, and came in just over on his second attempt.

"I think suspensions are in order, I really do", Whittaker said, per Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole.

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 was scheduled to fight for the UFC Middleweight title on Saturday against Robert Whittaker.

Whittaker's jab and lead hook peppered Romero's face and head, and the low kicks chopped at his base, as well.

Earlier this year, Romero weighed in at 187.7 pounds for a fight with Luke Rockhold for the interim belt. He even responded at times, with standing elbow strikes that momentarily backed Romero off. "I know he looks weak, but he packs some power". The left hand started to land clean for Whittaker, and Romero began to load up on a few big punches that missed - but certainly caught his opponent's attention. I can tell you that much.

Romero, a former Olympic silver medalist in wrestling for Cuba, did not make a huge fuss over the score, but did admit he felt he won.

With UFC president Dana White taking a tough-love approach as of late, it could be to the back of the list for Romero no matter what. "Making weight sucks. But you can't miss weight twice on two title fights and still think you're running the show".

Bisping on Romero coming up 0.2 pounds short: "I'm not the first person to jump to Yoel Romero's defense, but I will say this: It's a tricky one". Whittaker has now won nine bouts in a row.
