After two tries, Yoel Romero will not be competing for the UFC middleweight title on Saturday.

The would-be challenger was granted an extra two hours by the Illinois State Athletic Commission to make weight at Friday’s weigh-ins for UFC 225 in Chicago after coming in heavy on his first attempt for his championship rematch with Robert Whittaker. Clearance from a physician was also required for Romero to attempt a second weigh-in.

Romero initially weighed in at 186 pounds and he came in at 185.2 pounds on his second attempt, making him ineligible to win the title in Saturday’s main event. It is unclear whether the fight will proceed and if so what conditions will be negotiated by the fighters’ teams.

Whittaker being the humble bad mofo he is should allow it to happen just so he can KTFO Gay Jesus Stoll gate Romero.

I gave Romero a pass the 1st time around because of the late notice. There's no excuses this time.

War ! Bobby "Reaper" Knuckles" !

Apparently the commission pulled him when he was trying to make weight the second time, he was allowed 2hrs but for some reason the commission pulled him and only gave him 1 hour.

Not his first time though, I commend Whittaker on fighting him. Romero should have to move up, like many others though, not just him.

Romero's near-inability to walk around that time likely had something to do with it.

Dude's gotta drop some muscle cleanly or move up in weight. Been able to get away with it for a while but it's only gonna get harder with age.

Agreed! To lazy to look it up but he's either 41 or 42.

This. Yoel looked like crap walking back from the scale.

Yup, dramatics only made the situation worse...how can any Doc stand by and watch him cut weight and sign off on it when you need help from 2 people to fucking walk?! While this footage may gain him some sympathy with the fans, I think it cost him in the end and in this business the fans can fuck themselves so long as Uncle Dana is happy (which I doubt he is right now).

Such bull he can't win the title. They need to just get rid of weight cutting.

Well he lost again so no biggie.

How is it far the Whittaker cuts weight like a professional but Romero can weight in at whatever he pleases.

Whittaker's gain; Champ, win bonus and double 50K for Fight of The Night!

Thata boy Whittaker!
