Catch the UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold live stream for the event’s official weigh-ins right here Friday at 10PM ET!
UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold takes place Saturday, February 10 in Perth, Australia (February 11 locally). In the main event, an interim middleweight title fight sees former 185lb champion Luke Rockhold taking on powerful Cuban Yoel Romero. Romero previously fought for interim gold against current champion Robert Whittaker, who was originally scheduled opposite Rockhold in the main event.
However, after Whittaker was forced off the card due to health issues, Romero was brought in to take his place.
In the co-main event, heavyweight favorite Mark Hunt continues to defy father time, as he’ll look to knock out the eighth-ranked Curtis Blaydes. Blaydes (8-1, 1NC) has not lost in the UFC since being stopped in his debut by Francis Ngannou. Hunt (13–11–1 (1)), meanwhile, is coming off a fourth round stoppage of Derrick Lewis last Summer. Hunt has had all sorts of distractions since then, including his ongoing lawsuit against the UFC, and questions about his long-term health. You can bet he’ll be focused in the cage come UFC 221, however.
Also on the card, fellow heavyweight Tai Tuivasa will look to build on a big UFC debut win when he takes on France’s Cyril Asker.
There’s no early weigh-ins in Perth, so fighters will have twenty-four hours (or less) to re-hydrate after they step on the scales. The ceremonies begin Friday at 10PM ET, 7PM PT. Catch them above!
