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

The UFC did not announce whether the fight would continue, but the two fighters were introduced and faced off at the ceremonial weigh-ins later on Friday. UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker easily hit the mark, but after a hard cut, his opponent, Yoel Romero did not.

Romero was the only fighter on the card to miss weight, his second fight in a row as he also missed weight prior to the interim title fight against Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.

White addressed a number of other topics, including the possibility of former welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre dropping down to lightweight to either challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for the title or face Conor McGregor in a blockbuster bout. The bout will go ahead as a nontitle fight.

"It's great in one sense, that Rob can't lose the belt but obviously we wanted to fight for the title".

Now fully healthy, Whittaker will be aiming to lift his professional MMA record to 20-4 with a second straight victory over Romero, the No. 1 contender in the UFC middleweight division.

Outside of James, these Cavs are drastically different than the team the Warriors played in last year's NBA Finals. Hill's up-and-down play during the playoffs has become a microcosm for Cleveland's wild swings in the postseason.

UFC 225 takes place at United Center in Chicago.

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

Looking significantly worst-for-wear, "The Soldier of God" once again stripped down and weighed in behind a towel. But you can't miss weight twice on two title fights and still think you're running the show. "If you don't make weight, there's no fight".

"The main event is on. I'm refueling and getting ready for a fight".

Australian Megan Anderson and her featherweight opponent - former bantamweight world champion Holly Holm - each logged the same weight.
