Backstage News on CM Punk's UFC Fight Tonight

Or really punish him for missing weight by pushing him down the line of contenders.

When SN talked to Whittaker recently and asked whether he would still take the fight if Romero missed weight again, the middleweight champion, who came in at 185 pounds, made it clear he would not.

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.

"I needed two hours, and the commission would only give me one", Romero said in response to the criticism, per MMA Junkie's Steven Marrocco. That's what we want. "And number two, no, I would not go".

Romero was the only fighter on the card to miss weight, his second fight in a row as he also missed weight prior to the interim title fight against Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.

So, for the second consecutive fight, Romero will be in a planned championship bout without the opportunity to claim the title.

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.

Ahead of his UFC 225 fight against Mike Jackson tonight, CM Punk did the media rounds this week and discussed a variety of topics, including his win over WWE doctor Chris Amann in court this week, and his future after UFC 225.

As a former Olympic wrestler, Romero shouldn't be having trouble making weight.

What are your thoughts on Romero's comments?
