UFC 221 Predictions: Yoel Romero vs. Luke Rockhold 2/10/18
Luke Rockhold was in control for the vast majority of the 11:48 he spent inside the octagon with Yoel Romero in the main event of UFC 221 in Perth, Western Australia on Saturday night but one split-second display of explosive power from Romero in the third round rendered the American's prior work in the bout irrelevant. Romero missed weight by 2.7 pounds on Friday and as a result, was ineligible to win the interim middleweight crown.
Romero has received criticism for his cardio - fading in the later rounds against Robert Whittaker a year ago - but he remained powerful and explosive enough to land a brutal knockout blow with 1min 28 seconds left in the round.
The Cuban fighter had previously fought for the UFC Interim Middleweight Title, losing to Whittaker at UFC 213.
And there was good news for British fans, as lightweight veteran Ross "The Real Deal" Pearson produced a solid performance to earn a unanimous decision with scores of 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 as he ended a run of four straight defeats with a hard-earned win over Japanese fighter Mizuto Hirota.
Now, Romero, when his leg heals, will get another shot at champion Robert "The Reaper" Whittaker. He sent Rockhold falling to his backside courtesy of an overhand left, then finished him off with a left uppercut that put Rockhold out cold. However and injury forced Whittaker out and Romero stepped in for an interim title fight.
Strong start for Irish golfers at AT&T Pebble Beach Pro A further shot adrift are the likes of four-time champion Phil Mickelson , Spaniard Jon Rahm and Australian Jason Day . And I've got great partners, and it makes for a fun, special day, and this tournament is very unique.
6N: England and Wales set for another close encounter England would have lost more than one test by now under Jones if it weren't for the abrasive edge he has instilled in his squad. England would eventually see out a 12-6 victory, May adding a second try which Farrell converted after missing the first.
This now marks the fourth professional loss of Rockhold's career. Eventually he backed Luke up to the cage and unleashed an amazingly powerful left hand that slept Luke Rockhold!
Rockhold, ranked No. 2, was expecting to put on a better showing than his last fight, when he earned a second-round TKO over David Branch at UFC Fight Night in Pittsburgh on September 16.
Taking that in context, here are the five best fights for the UFC to make following UFC 221. For Romero, a win here would also set him up nicely for another shot at the belt. No question. It's going to be interesting to see what comes next for Rockhold.
Another said: "Second punch wasn't a finisher, it was an assassination".
