"This fight, as far as I'm concerned, I have 25 minutes to try to finish him - and I'm going to use every single second of those minutes to try to achieve that". However, his second attempt had him at 0.2 pounds overweight.
At the time of writing, the terms of the contest are not clear but UFC President Dana White confirmed that the fight will take place while it remains to be seen whether a title will be on the line, whether it will be the main event or how many rounds it will be. "I'm refueling and getting ready for a fight".
According to Okamoto, the UFC is now working with Romero and Whittaker's camps to try to keep the main event together.
Australian Megan Anderson and her featherweight opponent - former bantamweight world champion Holly Holm - each logged the same weight.
