New, comments

Tonight’s the night.

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion, Luke Rockhold, is all set to throw hands with top contender Yoel Romero in tonight’s (Sat., Feb. 10, 2018) UFC 221 pay-per-view (PPV) main event in Perth, Australia.

The winner gets the interim strap and the chance to fight Robert Whittaker.

Rockhold (16-3) coughed up his crown to Michael Bisping at UFC 199 in June of 2016, then remained sidelined until last September’s destruction of David Branch at UFC Pittsburgh. Romero (12-2), meanwhile, came up short in his quest to stop the aforementioned “Reaper” at UFC 213 last July, snapping an eight-fight win streak.

Check out their fight video preview above.
