UFC Fans Can't Get Over Yoel Romero's Defeat Of Luke Rockhold
Feb 12, 2018, 01:16
Romero, however, missed weight, making him ineligible to win the belt.
Never mind that the 6-foot-3 Rockhold had a substantial height and reach advantage, Romero wasn't intimidated.
Kiwi Luke Jumeau will be up first at about 12.30.
His finish was his seventh, tied for third in UFC middleweight history behind Anderson Silva and Thiago Santos, each of whom had eight. Nevertheless, sensing that the fight could be stopped at any time by the ringside medical team in lieu of the leg injury, Romero moved forward with reckless intent in Round 2. "There was no worry whatsoever in terms of cardio".
Another said: "Second punch wasn't a finisher, it was an assassination". He initially weighed 188 pounds but got down to only 187.7 with a two-hour allotment.

Had he beaten Romero, Rockhold might have made a decision to stick around for a crack at Whittaker but after falling to his second defeat in three fights, a move 20lbs north can't be far away for the 33-year-old veteran. Unfortunately, he didn't earn the interim title, because he failed to make weight the night before. Romero was fined 30 percent of his purse last weekend, a substantial chunk of change. The former middleweight champion crumpled to the canvas where he froze and Romero pounced to deliver one more sickening shot before the fight was called off by referee Marc Goddard. He has since returned to training.
Romero won a silver medal at the 2000 Olympics in wrestling but he did the damage in the ring with his fists on Sunday. Against Rockhold, the Cuban native looked to rebound from his decision loss to Whittaker in their initial interim title fight at UFC 213 in July 2017.
