Another UFC PPV event and another day of uncertainty and drama at the early morning weigh-ins.
While it still remains unclear whether or not Robert Whittaker or Yoel Romero will fight tomorrow night in Chicago, one thing we do know is that it won’t be for the Aussie’s world title.
Romero missed weight by .2 lbs (on his second attempt) during today’s early morning weigh-ins ahead of tomorrow night’s UFC 225 event in Chicago. As of this writing, we are still awaiting word on what the UFC has planned for this highly anticipated main event rematch.
Below, you’ll find the full results from the early morning weigh-ins along with the live stream to the ceremonial weigh-in event above. If we don’t know the main event status before the stream kicks off at 7 p.m. ET, we will certainly be informed during.

* Romero weighed in at 185.2 lbs on his second attempt. He weighed in at 186 initially before being given 2 extra hours to cut one pound to make championship weight. Romero reportedly (according to his management team) was stopped by the Chicago commission after one hour and forced to weigh-in.
