Did CM Punk Win His Second Pro-MMA Fight At UFC 225?

Yoel Romero Daniel Cormier UFC 225 Full Official Weigh-in Video: Whittaker Makes the Mark; Romero Does Not
Cassandra Gardner | 10 June, 2018, 06:26

Whittaker defeated Romero in their first fight last July by unanimous decision at UFC 213 to capture the interim UFC middleweight. The Australian fighter has not fought since then.

Romero missed weight by 0.2lbs overnight - his second straight failed weight cut - removing the title from the equation.

The fight will still take place, and Whittaker will retain his title if he wins.

Romero weighed in at 186 pounds on his first attempt and was granted an extra two hours to lose the one pound he needed to qualify for Saturday's middleweight title fight. That suggests there is potential for a stoppage.

The co-main event of the card features a battle for the UFC interim welterweight championship, with No. 3 contender Colby Covington battling No. 2 Rafael dos Anjos as a narrow betting favourite. There's a strong likelihood the matchup goes the duration.

Golden State Warriors Win NBA Championship, Beat Cavs 108-85
It was the fourth year in a row the Warriors and Cavaliers met in the finals, Golden State winning in 2015 and the past two years. But it was Warriors forward Kevin Durant who was named the finals' Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive year.


Holly Holm fights Megan Anderson in a bout that could determine women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg's next opponent.

Romero is a world-class wrestler with knockout power and a physique that belies his age of 41. Tuivasa believers should probably expect another quick knockout, while skeptics might look at a safe play on Arlovski dragging out the fight and testing the younger artist's staying power.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Punk's victory over Jackson at UFC 225.

We'll update the post if anything interesting is said during the post-fight press conference.
