    Yoel Romero comes in heavy on first attempt ... 188.3


    He had until midnight ET (1 pm local time) to make 185 lbs.


    2nd attempt ... 187.7


    Belt only on the line for Rockhold now.

    Same exact scenario as Holloway vs. Pettis at UFC 206.

    Let's face it, If Romero wins he'll still be right up there in the mix for a title shot anyway.

    “Romero took this fight on short notice when Whittaker fell out and he didn’t get a full camp. I appreciate him stepping up and taking the fight"

    Now it’s up to Rockhold to accept the fight under these terms (and also negotiate a deal).

    This hasn’t happened yet.

    Wait, they're still fighting, right?


    I feel like I can see the future..... Rockhold wins and then Romero faces Gastelum next. It just occurred to me as the perfect scenario.

    Weird how this division is almost crumbling into itself.

    Negotiations still ongoing ... Fight isn’t official at this moment.

    Struggling to see the defense for a Romero miss ...

    Short notice? No full camp??

    Romero was booked to fight Branch before the Whittaker health situation came up. He was in a fight camp and already training.

    After negotiations at the arena didn’t get finalized, all parties took a break to go back to the hotel to continue.


    No deal yet to get this fight done ...

    Per source close to Rockhold ... “It’s on.”
