Cuban powerhouse Yoel Romero knocked out former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in devastating fashion at UFC 221, despite believing he might have broken his leg earlier in the contest.
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.
After beating Michael Bisping to claim UFC gold in the 185lbs division, the Canadian superstar shortly vacated the title with UFC promoting Whittaker to undisputed status, scheduling him against Luke Rockhold. And from the looks of it, that may prove to be a very good thing for Romero, as despite not winning the interim belt at UFC 221, it's looking more and more likely he'll get his rematch with Whittaker. Rockhold fell along the fence, and Romero pounced, landing another left to put him away. Whittaker then became full champion after Georges St-Pierre relinquished the middleweight title. A giant overhand left was followed up with a right uppercut and the referee had no option but to step in and save the dazed Rockhold.
Why they should fight: After a layoff of more than 14 months, Safarov finally resumed his UFC career with a bout against Tyson Pedro, but it didn't go very well for him. However, the UFC middleweight champ was sidelined with a litany of injuries, meaning Yoel Romerowas parachuted in to take on Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight championship.
Romero missed out on the opportunity to win some hardware in the main event, though.
Whittaker got the judges nod in a brilliant back-and-forth bout.
Romero strung together with handsome punching combinations in the second round and followed up with yet another hellacious offensive chain of movements in the third round.
Romero is an incredible fighter and his 9-2 record with eight finishes in the UFC is remarkable.
