UFC 225 weigh-in results: Yoel Romero barely misses, leaving main event in limbo

CHICAGO – MMAjunkie is on scene and reporting live from today’s early and official UFC 225 fighter weigh-ins.

The early weigh-ins took place at the UFC host hotel in Chicago and precede the ceremonial weigh-ins for the fans, which take place at 7 p.m. ET at United Center in Chicago. The same venue hosts Saturday’s event, which has a main card on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Among those weighing in were middleweight champion Robert Whittaker (19-4 MMA, 10-2 UFC) and fellow headliner Yoel Romero (13-2 MMA, 9-1 UFC), as well as co-headliners Colby Covington (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) and Rafael dos Anjos (28-9 MMA, 17-7 UFC), who fight for the vacant welterweight title.

Romero weighed 186 pounds on his first trip to the scale and was given an additional two hours to make weight. He registered 185.2 pounds on his second attempt. UFC officials have yet to comment on the status of the bout.

Romero appeared to be in pain and needed assistance walking as he left the weigh-ins (via Twitter).
