Live updates - UFC 221: Luke Rockhold vs Yoel Romero
Yoel Romero beat Luke Rockhold by knockout in the third round. However, due to missing weight, Romero wasn't able to win the same title Rockhold was.
There was plenty of controversy leading up to the main event of UFC 221.
Romero's win would seem to put him line for a shot at the title when champion Robert Whittaker recovers from the illness and injury that saw him drop out of the fight against Rockhold. Romero checked some of Rockhold's kicks, and it cut Rockhold's left shin open. With 90 seconds left, Romero landed with a left hand and backed Rockhold up.
The Cuban veteran had Rockhold hurt with punches in the second, but was unable to get the finish. The 33-year-old Santa Cruz, California, native had kept Romero at bay with kicks and grown increasingly effective with his jab. Romero vs. Rockhold took place at Perth Arena and set records for the sports and entertainment complex.
There might not be anyone better in the sport than Romero when it comes to baiting an opponent into an exchange before exploding forward with a series of nuclear bombs and that's exactly what he did at UFC 221. However, it all unraveled when the American Top Team brute split the air with a jarring left cross that sent Rockhold to the canvas in a dazed and defenseless state.
He knocked Rockhold to the ground with a swinging left punch in the third round before delivering a heavy uppercut while Rockhold sat stunned to end the contest.
Following the fight, Romero apologized for not making weight while also paying tribute to Rockhold for giving him a tough fight on Saturday night.
