Robert Whittaker left punches Yoel Romero in their interim UFC middleweight championship bout Las Vegas last July

UFC main event fights in pay-per-view events have been dropping like flies these past few months and UFC 225 is no different.
In his final attempt and with three minutes to spare, Romero looking worn out and gaunt, came in at 185.2 pounds - becoming the first fighter in UFC history to miss weight in multiple title fights. "Look, if you don't make weight, you're breaching a contract straight up".
Romero needed to get down to 185 pounds or less to ensure he could compete for the middleweight strap on Saturday at United Center.
It was better but it still was not good enough - 185.2lbs. As it is still the main event, it will remain a five round fight.
The former featherweight and lightweight champion, who hasn't fought in MMA since winning the 155-pound belt in November 2016, took to Instagram to celebrate his placement at No. 4 on the Forbes list of the world's highest-paid athletes for 2017 and to add that he would have placed higher with an "agreed May 12th bout in Rio de Janeiro" before "something came up". The Cuban missed weight, so the fight will be a non-title event.
"I think suspensions are in order, I really do", Whittaker said, per Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole.
"But it makes me upset. I think the punishment should be more severe and they should force people to move up in weight if they can't make it". "I don't know why the commission didn't give me two hours". "It's ridiculous to think about it".
