UFC 221 Embedded 3: Romero vs Rockhold Vlog Series


If Yoel Romero beats Luke Rockhold at UFC 221 in Perth, Western Australia early on Sunday morning, he will not be crowned interim middleweight champion.

Romero (12-2) could not make the 185-pound limit at Saturday's weigh-in.

However, despite the two hour allotment to get his weight down, Romero was unable to hit the mark. Romero swapped words with an annoyed Rockhold after the weigh in, after which he vowed to make weight in the second attempt. At 188.3lbs, he was likewise given the two-hour allowance to make weight.

There was a delay after Romero missed weight the second time as the UFC attempted to negotiate a deal with Rockhold.

It was a far different story on Friday, when he danced salsa in public as part of a promotion for the fight. "I appreciate him stepping up and taking the fight".
