Yoel Romero misses weight AGAIN

Yoel weighed in at 186 on his first attempt and then weighed in 185.2 on his second try.  Weigh in's are officially over.

It's uncertain what is going to happen now... either this is going to be a non title fight, or the fight might get scrapped all together.

If I'm Robert Whittaker, there's NO WAY I'm taking this fight.  Fight a guy you already beat who didn't make weight so it's not even a title fight? f**k that. 

Brian Stann for President.

This is #1 bullshit...

He looked really bad on the second attempt. I thought he might pass out.

0.2 lbs - give blood like Cody!

Just spoke to Yoel Romero’s manager Abraham Kawa. He said an hour into the extra 2 hours they had to cut the one pound, the exec. director of the Illinois Commission told Romero to stop the cut and weigh in.

They were told it was a medical call, though they said a doctor was w/ them and wasn’t stopping it, though that doctor couldn’t overrule the head the commission. It took them a while to get downstairs but they firmly believe if given the full 2 hours he would have made it.

Hmmm... super skeptical hippo eyes.  :roll:
He weighed in with 4 minutes left.  Soooo, that whole hour thing is just untrue.  This is some excuse Yoel
s team came up with to try to save face... let me guess, it's all because of the early weigh in's right?  He would have made it if he had more time right?  
He had 2 months.  He missed weight twice in a row.... next stop LHW or STFU  :x

This. 

Yoel had weeks to prepare for this fight and shouldn't get another hour. It sucks for the fans and especially for those who got tickets, but Whitaker should definitely turn down this fight and make a stand to all this bollocks. 
Weight cutting isn't the issue here, it's just fighters abusing it. 

Like many drugs for example.

Know what I mean guv?

Yup :like 

I feel bad for Bobby Knuckles... There is literally no upside in this fight for him... and if he loses then it just opens up Pandora's box.  

What are they gonna do, have a trilogy fight so Yoel can miss weight a 3rd time?  The whole scenario is fucked, I was hoping that Bobby Knucks told the UFC to f**k off on this one... but it seems like the fight is still on. smh

At this stage Yoel should jump up to the lhw division. He's getting older & has already lost to the champ. If this fight goes ahead it won't be a title fight Anyroad. The lhw division is shallow & a couple of fights could see Yoel in title contention by the end of the year.
