UFC President Dana White talked to the media after the UFC 225 Weigh-in at the United Center in Chicago on Friday, addressing a litany of UFC hot topics.

Chief among the issues was Saturday’s UFC 225 main event. Although Yoel Romero missed weight, negating any hopes he had at winning the middleweight belt on Saturday, White confirmed that the fight is indeed going to take place, it just won’t have Robert Whittaker’s middleweight strap on the line. He will maintain the belt, win or lose.

White addressed a number of other topics, including the possibility of former welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre dropping down to lightweight to either challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov for the title or face Conor McGregor in a blockbuster bout.
