Yoel Romero Misses Weight And Won’t Fight For Championship At UFC225

"The main event is on".

In the second round, a Whittaker left hand caused some awful swelling on Romero's right eye.

An interim welterweight title fight between Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington will co-headline UFC 225.

Romero was supposed to fight Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight title at UFC 221. But Romero missed weight, which was both surprising and not surprising at the same time. The fight was originally for the middleweight championship.

Why is the U.S. separating migrant children from their parents?
Roughly 550 children are in custody, and of those, almost 300 have spent more than 72 hours there, NBC reported . If anything, Trump's tweet just proves that outrage over the draconian policy isn't going away.

The two fighters were introduced and faced off at the ceremonial weigh-ins later Friday. The Australian fighter has not fought since then.

The fight became a non-title main event, which meant Whittaker, plagued by injuries and thankful to return to the Octagon, lost an opportunity to notch his first UFC title defense. Covington controlled the five-round title fight by outstriking the former lightweight champ.

Check back here later tonight for the end result coming out of the fight.

Now fully healthy, Whittaker will be aiming to lift his professional MMA record to 20-4 with a second straight victory over Romero, the No. 1 contender in the UFC middleweight division. Whittaker would still have the belt, making him something of a lame duck champion. The bout will take place over five rounds, but Whittaker's title will not be on the line. Tuivasa, age 25, has won all seven of his pro fights by knockout or TKO, but the 39-year-old Arlovski will be his toughest opponent yet. Romero knocked out Rockhold in the second round.

Samsung developing its own Snapdragon-powered Windows 10 PC
Thermal tuning should be more fitting to a laptop form factor than a smartphone and will still allow for sleek, fanless designs. While it could power your next laptop (maybe), you nearly certainly won't be seeing the Snapdragon 850 in your next phone.

Romero landed several other strikes, but Whittaker survived and landed a few of his own in an epic round.

If Romero had won, he would have a win over the champion. The 25-year-old's UFC ledger reaches a ideal 3-0, while the veteran Arlovski sees the end of a modest two-fight winning streak. It's not only a fight for a fight - I want to fight for the title. Am I gonna get furious at you because you can't sit through a bad television show? "I'm refueling and getting ready for a fight". Yes, it's their job to make weight. The brutal weight cut forced Romero into a position where he needed to keep a slow pace and pick his spots to explode.

UFC president Dana White has suggested Romero needs to move up in weight, to the 205-pound division. In response, Romero threw cold water on the idea. Or you take a point. Romero kept fighting with urgency, but Whittaker kept his distance as best he could jabbing and side-kicking.

And until he figures that part of the equation out, he shouldn't be anywhere near championship fights and the championship fighters who serve as shining examples of what a true professional athlete looks like.
