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.
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.

"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.
