Matches to Make After UFC 221

Live updates - UFC 221: Luke Rockhold vs Yoel Romero

After a heated build-up, Yoel Romero hammered Luke Rockhold into oblivion on the way to a third-round knockout victory at UFC 221 in Perth. "I'm very happy because I fight this time with the best".

Despite the win, the 40-year old Cuban was denied the interim title after failing to make weight by two pounds a day earlier, but his strong showing means he will get a shot at the title sooner rather than later.

That caused Messick's family to lash out at both McGowan and Weinstein for involving Messick and putting her in the middle. They praised her as a "survivor" who had battled with depression and bipolar disorder for many years.

Rockhold would have taken the title with a win Sunday and seemed to have it in his grasp until Romero demonstrated all of his explosive punching power, opening his rival up with a left hook and following with an overhand left which sent Rockhold to the canvas and a final uppercut. Rockhold is a very good athlete and an unbelievable fighter. That fight will be a rematch of a closely contested five-round bout last July.

Kim has the momentum with two wins heading into this bout while Brown will look to add to his "win" column after 2 losses. Romero won the first two rounds but appeared to run out of gas in the last 15 minutes. According to Fightmetric, he landed 52 of 99 attempted strikes and did not attempt a single takedown. This fight card shows a lot of promise too and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, the UFC are showering the host crowd with a lot of love by featuring local favorites like Mark Hunt, Tai Tuivasa, Jake Mathews and not in the least, Israel Adesanya. He scored points in the form of leg kicks and a steady jab, but he never completely settled into a rhythm. He lost his UFC title in a stunning upset to Michael Bisping in June 2016 via first-round knockout.
