UFC 225 is finally upon us and last night, the card’s fighters stepped on the scales for the ceremonial weigh-ins after a tense day in the sport.
Another massive UFC fight-card, another botched attempt at cutting weight it seems.
UFC 225 will still go ahead tonight but for its main-event headliner, Yoel Romero, the fight that could well stand as his last ever attempt at a UFC belt will no longer see him eligible for the title.
It’ll be a bitter pill to swallow for the Cuban, no doubt, but with that fight still on the cards as well as several other scintillating matchups, the controversy surrounding the top-billed middleweight title contest will more than likely not dampen the night as a whole.
The athletes taking part in tonight’s show took part in the ceremonial weigh-ins last night and as you’d imagine, there were more than a few heated staredowns to be found throughout.
