Robert Whittaker left punches Yoel Romero in their interim UFC middleweight championship bout Las Vegas last July

But the bout no longer is a title fight after Romero failed to make weight for the second straight time in a title fight. Or really punish him for missing weight by pushing him down the line of contenders.

Romero feels that if he was given that extra hour then he could have made the championship weight and challenged for the title. Romero said the commission ended up giving him just one hour, not two, to cut to the weight limit, and he received no explanation for the shortened opportunity.

The two combatants met at UFC 213 last summer for the interim middleweight belt when Whittaker defeated Romero in a closely contested battle via a unanimous decision.

There is no word from the UFC if the fight will proceed and how the purses will be divided. It's not only a fight for a fight - I want to fight for the title. "And number two, no, I would not go".

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.

"I missed weight but the situation is very complicated", Romero said.

Illness forced him out of his first scheduled title defence in Perth in February - and Romero took his place, setting up the rematch with a devastating knockout win.

UFC President Dana White talked to the media after the UFC 225 Weigh-in at the United Center in Chicago on Friday, addressing a litany of UFC hot topics.
