Yoel Romero not eligible for interim UFC title after missing weight

Yoel Romero not eligible for interim UFC title after missing weight

As a result, only Rockhold can claim the middleweight title should he defeat Romero in the Perth Arena on Sunday.

On Saturday, February 10, the UFC touched down in Perth Australia to bring fight fans UFC 221, featuring an interim middleweight title fight between former Olympian Yoel Romero and former UFC & Stikeforce champion Luke Rockhold.

Rockhold weighed in at 184.9 pounds.

But Romero has now been ruled ineligible for the interim belt after twice failing to make weight.

Out of majority of the fighters on this list, Romero won't have to worry about job security when he steps into the octagon on Saturday.

Romero had little to say, as he stormed off to find a sauna.

Five years and a combined 17 fights later, it is finally happening.

The beleaguered UFC 221 PPV took another hit late Friday, when Yoel Romero missed weight on his second trip to the scales. They're both known for throwing bombs, so it's likely going to come down to whomever lands first. Romero swapped words with an annoyed Rockhold after the weigh in, after which he vowed to make weight in the second attempt.

Flyweight contender Jussier Formiga was slightly off the mark, although he was much closer to making weight than Romero.

In the co-main event, two unsafe heavyweights will square off, with Curtis Blaydes (8-1, 1 No-Contest) and Mark Hunt (13-11-1, 1 NC) combining for 17 knockouts among 21 wins between them.
