Robert Whittaker left punches Yoel Romero in their interim UFC middleweight championship bout Las Vegas last July
Cuban Romero, who failed to make the limit for his last fight in Perth in February, initially came in just under half a kilogram heavy and had two hours to lose the excess weight. Punk last fought back in September 2016, losing via submission to Mickey Gall at 2:14 in the first round at UFC 203.
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.
Earlier in the week, Whittaker was asked whether he would take the fight if Romero missed weight again. Romero knocked out Rockhold in the second round. Romero won that bout via a knockout, and although he wasn't awarded a belt, he immediately was given a title shot despite his weight cutting issues.
Whittaker said: "I have a great team and a great staff".
This is the second consecutive fight in which Romero has missed weight. Or really punish him for missing weight by pushing him down the line of contenders.
