UFC 221 weigh in results: Yoel Romero officially misses weight by over two pounds (Updated)

Update (1:33 a.m.):

According to reports by ESPN’s Brett Okamoto and BJPenn.com’s Chris Taylor, Luke Rockhold has agreed to fight Yoel Romero after all and keep UFC 221’s main event in tact.

Update (12:21 a.m):

Romero has failed his second attempt to make the 185-pound benchmark for his interim UFC middleweight title fight with Luke Rockhold later today (Sat., Feb. 10, 2018) at UFC 221 in Perth, Australia.

“Solider of God” ended his cut at 187.7 pounds. Check out his final weigh in above courtesy of Submission Radio.

What makes matters worse is that Rockhold has yet to agree to fight Romero at his heavier weight, essentially putting the PPV main event in limbo. And even if Rockhold agrees to step inside of the cage, Romero would be ineligible to win the interim title after missing weight.

Things can never go smoothly when it comes to a Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event, so it shouldn’t have come as a surprise earlier tonight (Fri., Feb. 9, 2018) at the UFC 221 weigh ins in Perth, Australia, when Yoel Romero came in at 188.3 pounds for his main event interim middleweight title fight against Luke Rockhold.

Romero will have his allotted two hour
