Yoel Romero has officially missed weight for his UFC 225 championship bout by 0.2 pounds and because of that he cannot fight for the middleweight title yet again. In his last bout he was facing Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight title and won. Unfortunately, Romero missed weight and was not eligible for the title … Read more

UFC 225 weigh in results and yep Romero did it again, misses weight

Weigh-ins for UFC 225 are in the books and a usual suspect rears his head.

Covington declares he’s fighting for the ‘real belt’

Here we go again. Colby Covington, aka the new Chael Sonnen better be ready to back up his trash talk when he steps in to the cage with Rafael Dos Anjos. The bout goes down on Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago and ahead of it Covington has been dissing Dos Anjos and anyone else within shouting distance. We swear he’s Voldemort and has put a spell on his name that alerts him when another fighter says it so he spring in to action. With welterweight champ Tyron Woodley on the shelf since July of last year he claims he and RDA are fighting for the ‘real belt’. We can’t say we blame him. A lot of fighters stall for one reason or the other so they can remain the champ. Marketing and movie offers come easily when you hold the belt. Check out Colby’s claims…

CM Punk says that luck is for losers

CM Punk may very well be fighting his last time in the UFC this Saturday at UFC 225 in Chicago. He lost quickly to Mickey Gall in his debut and Dana White will surely cut Punk from the roster if he can’t beat the relatively inexperienced Mike Jackson. When interviewed by Megan Olivi he said ‘luck is for losers’ meaning a lucky punch won’t count as a win for him despite getting his hand raised. Check it out…

Punk is reportedly fighting in Chicago against a more realistic opponent

MMA Fighting says CM Punk is fighting later this year according to reports. Punk got obliterated by Mickey Gall in his debut at UFC 203 and hasn’t fought since. Fighter Mike Jackson looks to be the next opponent in line for the former WWE champion with a comparable record albeit with a bit more experience. We gave Punk a pass since his first opponent was a certified killer with championship potential so maybe this time in his hometown of Chicago at UFC 225 CM Punk can put one in the win column. If not he will most likely be out of a job. Let’s hope he doesn’t try this over confident no hand shake face off he had with Gall. Not a smart move.
