Yoel Romero Viciously Puts Luke Rockhold To Sleep With Brutal Punches

UFC 221 Predictions: Yoel Romero vs. Luke Rockhold 2/10/18 UFC 221 Live Stream: Watch Romero vs Rockhold online
Isaac Mcdaniel | 12 February, 2018, 01:18

According to the latest oddsmakers at YouWager, Rockhold is favored to win this fight, as he has odds of -185 to win, while Romero is being given a money line of +150 to prevail.

Sure, Romero has already been punished by having 30% of his purse taken away and given to Rockhold, plus he was ineligible for the $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus.

In this fight, Romero will need to conserve his energy. Romero was originally scheduled to face David Branch at UFC on Fox 28 in Orlando, Fla., on February 24 before he accepted the fight against Rockhold. First, the man named middleweight champion after Georges St-Pierre vacated the belt without defending it, Robert Whittaker, contracted a staph infection in his stomach and was forced to withdraw from his first title defense against Luke Rockhold.

Rockhold appears to be in good spirits, though, who took to social media to congratulate the victor.

Rory McIlroy five putts after near eagle at Pebble Beach
The firm and fast conditions coupled with his distance will make him a tough player to beat this week. I don't know if we'll get another elite victor this week, but I do know we won't be short on views.

Luke Rockhold can win the interim middleweight title but Romero won't claim the belt if he wins the fight. 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. Whittaker won and was then elevated to official champion late previous year after St-Pierre beat Bisping and immediately dropped the belt. If an explanation as to how this projected Whittaker vs. Romero rematch came to be requires a full-length documentary, that's not a good thing.

"The Soldier of God" adopted a measured pace against Rockhold, and after two competitive rounds, he found the opening he needed in the third stanza.

"Romero took this fight on short notice when [Robert] Whittaker fell out, and he didn't get a full camp", White said, per Okamoto. Rockhold came back into the round with a big left and right, closing the round with a triple jab. But this is a sport, and part of the sport is making weight. "I think we've got a few factors that are going to allow us for some time, and first and foremost, it's that Rob can't really fight for a few months, so there's a bit of time to figure out what happens in the middleweight division". Let's just hope if that happens he makes weight.
