    Yea, almost 3 pounds...that's a lot going into a title fight, Rockhold will still fight and can get interim title should he win, but if Romero wins he doesn't get it. So what do they do with it? might as well just throw it in the garbage...and I don't think Romero should get the next title fight should he win considering he didn't bother to come in at weight.

    Yeah, if Romero wins, it throws the division into complete shit.......who does Whittaker fight? Gastelum, Wiedman, Jacare? If I'm those guys, I'm calling out another one of them fast......try and get a fight booked to make the winner the next guy.......if Romero wins!

    We have to hope for a Rockhold win here

    “To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.”

    Why? It would be hilarious if Romero was to win.......might encourage the UFC to stop booking stupid interim fights(OK, I know it won't).......might make them think twice about low quality PPV's(OK, same again, no chance!)........might also have some real insight and action on the weight cutting problem, because it's causing the UFC problems now too(OK, I give up, they'll do nothing!).

    I mean it would be fun to see the division in chaos again, worse than when Bisping was "champ". But I'd feel for Whittaker if it were to happen
