UFC 221 Predictions: Yoel Romero vs. Luke Rockhold 2/10/18

UFC 221 Predictions: Yoel Romero vs. Luke Rockhold 2/10/18

Rockhold was reportedly awarded 30% of Romero's purse which is said to have totalled about $100,000. Despite winning the fight, Romero won't be crowned the interim champion because he missed weight.

Will Luke Rockhold claim the UFC Interim Middleweight Championship tonight when he faces off with Yoel Romero?

Romero decked Rockhold with an overhand left in round three, and then finished the renowned fighter with a booming uppercut. Whittaker won and was then elevated to official champion late previous year after St-Pierre beat Bisping and immediately dropped the belt. "The Reaper" was elevated to undisputed champion when Georges St. Pierre recently vacated the title after defeating Michael Bisping at UFC 217. This flash knockout over Rockhold did just that, and while he might be an underdog against Whittaker, it's impossible to deny his chances.

Things finally appeared to be returning to normal at that point, as Whittaker booked a title defense against former champion Luke Rockhold.

Check out live play-by-play and official results from UFC 221 in Perth.

Virginia, Villanova, Xavier, Purdue top preliminary NCAA bracket preview
John's and Purdue to Ohio State and Michigan State, Sunday's seedings included only the top 16 and bracketed them by region. The committee is no longer using RPI top 50, top 100, top 200, and 201 and above as five dividing categories.


After a tentative opening round, Romero, a Miami resident by way of Cuba, picked up the pace in the second, darting into range and landing punches in bunches on Rockhold (16-4), a former UFC and Strikeforce champ from Santa Cruz, Calif. If this was the case, it would delay when Romero's next fight would be. Whittaker was supposed to fight Rockhold on Saturday, but had to pull out with a variety of ailments, including chickenpox and a staph infection. Exclusive Fight Pass prelims will begin at 7:30AM (local time, GMT+8). He has no history of missing weight, other than last weekend.

Weight, not cardio ended up preventing Romero from leaving the octagon with a belt around his waist.

The Cuban silver medalist from the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney went on to destroy Rockhold early the third round. The problem is no one else stands out as the next contender in line. For Romero, a win here would also set him up nicely for another shot at the belt.

If Asker wants to be considered more than division fodder, he needs to get some momentum going.
