CM Punk On If He's Going To Attend All In

Romero, 41, weighed in at 186 pounds in his first attempt Friday.

The UFC takes center stage in Chicago on Saturday night at United Center in one of the most stacked cards in recent memory for UFC 225.

"The main event is on".

Given that he was competing for the UFC belt, he had to make "championship weight" of 185lbs or under. "Absolutely it's on. (Romero) missed by 0.2 (lbs)", White said on the official weigh-in broadcast. At his peak, Whittaker is a well-rounded fighter, combining high-volume striking - especially to opponents' heads - with a strong takedown defense.

"It's very hard. We come here to fight for the title", Romero said.

Whittaker, who claimed a unanimous decision over Romero last July, was asked earlier this week about the recent spate of missed weights among his UFC peers. It's not only a fight for a fight - I want to fight for the title. Under the rules of the Illinois State Athletic Commission, Romero was allowed two hours to cut one pound. I don't even know how that's [missing weight] a thing?
