Romero was in frightening form before his loss to Whittaker, winning eight in a row, including knockouts over former champions Lyoto Machida and Chris Weidman. However, he did conduct a brief interview on Fox Sports 1, where he said he thought he broke his leg in the opening stanza after absorbing several hard leg kicks from his opponent. Tonight's bout is the main event of UFC 221, which takes place from Perth Arena in Perth, Western Australia.

Matthews, 23, produced arguably the best performance of his career to defeat Jingliang, but the bout was marred by an ugly incident when the Chinese fighter blatantly gouged Matthews' right eye to escape a tight triangle choke.

Rockhold and Romero eventually agreed to fight shortly before the card was scheduled to begin. Whittaker or Romero? Let us know. "There was no worry whatsoever in terms of cardio".

After the fight, the 40-year-old apologized to his fans for failing to make the weight cut for the fight, saying afterward: "I'm not necessarily sure what went wrong". And even though a second fight between Whittaker and Romero - less than one year after the original - might feel like a move backward, it's the only next step the UFC should consider. Whittaker was then supposed to face Rockhold in a title bout, but had to pull out with injury, necessitating an interim bout between Romero and Rockhold.

On the preliminary card, Jussier Formiga and Israel Adesanya made statements, with Formiga choking Ben Nguyen unconscious after dropping him with a spinning backfist.

Tuivasa on how he's taking his fights as they come: "Of course (the title is) in my mind, but at the moment I only have one fight".

The Cuban fighter had previously fought for the UFC Interim Middleweight Title, losing to Whittaker at UFC 213.

After two closely contested rounds, Romero exploded with an overhand left, which dropped the former middleweight champion. With a normal camp, Romero expects there will be no issues on the scale. "I recovered after about three seconds, when I got the takedown".
