The 22-year-old Yulo finished seventh among eight finalists with a score of 13.300, well-below his tally in the qualification where he was first with 15.266.
Giarnni Regini-Moran of Great Britain ruled the floor exercise with 14.533, followed by all-around winner Daiki Hashimoto of Japan with a score of 14.500. Doi Ryosuke of Japan took the bronze with 14.266.
Yulo was a picture of disappointment at the close of his routine. He failed to land cleanly on a front double pike, lost his balance, and sat down early on.
Yulo, however, still has a chance at medals on Sunday as he competes in the vault and the parallel bars at 1:34 p.m. and 3:24 p.m. respectively (9:34 p.m. and 11:24 p.m. Philippine time)
The Filipino gymnast was third in the vault during qualification with a score of 14.733, and fourth in the parallel bars with 15.300.
During the all-around event, Yulo placed first in the parallel bars with a 15.166 on his way to an eighth-place finish in the final on Friday
