UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold Live
UFC 221 takes place from the Perth Arena in Perth, Australia, with the main card beginning at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view.
UFC 221. Yoel Romero, who was originally scheduled to fight Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight championship, failed to make the 185-pound weight limit on Friday. Romero came in three pounds over the limit during his first weigh-in attempt, but he was afforded the two hours to attempt to drop down to 185. Unfortunately, though, he was unsuccessful in shedding the weight the second time around in Australia, coming in at 187 pounds.
Whether the UFC reacted in the way that they did due to legitimate concern for his well-being, or because they feared being sued into oblivion at some point in the future is up for debate (I mean, sort of), but they promptly pulled him from the fight, and subjected him to a battery of tests. C’mon Mark, remember Big Nog! Virtually unable to move, blind in one eye, he went out there and got brutally destroyed… but he kept his ailments a public secret rather than public knowledge. Keep that narrative of immortal warriors out to climb to the top of the heap going, not this sad story of disintegrating old men. Not cool, man!
