Romero was the last of the 26 fighters on the card to hit the scales in Chicago, where the UFC 225 event will take place on Sunday. "Everything goes on as usual", UFC president Dana White said.
Romero weighed in at 186 pounds on his first attempt and was granted an extra two hours to lose the one pound he needed to qualify for Saturday's middleweight title fight. Under the rules of the Illinois State Athletic Commission, Romero was allowed two hours to cut one pound.
The UFC did not announce whether the fight would continue, but the two fighters were introduced and faced off at the ceremonial weigh-ins later on Friday.
"Yoel Romero's a hard dude on the best of nights", he said. "We want to fight for the title". He was scheduled to fight for the UFC Middleweight title on Saturday against Robert Whittaker.
As a former Olympic wrestler, Romero shouldn't be having trouble making weight. The bout was eventually salvaged.
Whittaker (19-4) became the interim champion just under a year ago with his gruelling unanimous decision victory over Romero (13-2).
Romero earned a third-round KO victory as a plus-150 underdog, but was deemed ineligible to claim the belt after failing to make weight. He jokingly responded that it's a "long flight" from his home in Australia and added, "I'm fighting somebody". "If you don't make weight, there's no fight".
