Romero misses weight in Perth

Luke Rockhold seems to have ruffled a few feathers within the middleweight division during a Q & A session in advance of this weekend's UFC 221 event in Perth, Australia.

Romero, who had never missed weight in his career, came in well over the 185lb limit for his interim title fight against Luke Rockhold.

The difference between the two is that Rockhold made the championship weight on his first attempt.

The fight will still go ahead but the belt will only be on the line for Rockhold. As the final seconds ticked away, Romero stepped on the scale and only lost 0.6 pounds, weighing in at 187.7 pounds.

It was a far different story on Friday, when he danced salsa in public as part of a promotion for the fight.

But when Whittaker was ruled out through illness on January 13, Romero was named his replacement with the fight downgraded to interim belt status.

It was then determined that Whittaker would face Rockhold on Saturday at UFC 221 - that was until the champion came down with a horrific staph infection in his stomach.

"Romero took this fight on short notice when Whittaker fell out and he didn't get a full camp". As a result, only Rockhold can claim the middleweight title should he defeat Romero in the Perth Arena on Sunday.
