Title contender Yoel Romero is not happy with the IL commission.

"I can't disrespect him in that regard even for a second and look past him otherwise I'll lose in that instant". "I needed two hours but the commission only gave me one". "It was the commission's decision".

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. It's not only a fight for a fight - I want to fight for the title.

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. "And number two, no, I would not go".

This marks the second time in a row that Romero has missed weight for a fight. He was scheduled to fight for the UFC Middleweight title on Saturday against Robert Whittaker. Romero won that bout via a knockout, and although he wasn't awarded a belt, he immediately was given a title shot despite his weight cutting issues.

"This fight, as far as I'm concerned, I have 25 minutes to try to finish him - and I'm going to use every single second of those minutes to try to achieve that".
