UFC 221 takes place on Saturday night and it comes to us from the other side of the world in Perth, Australia. While the UFC has visited Australia before, this will mark the first event from the company that will take place inside the Perth Arena.
Leading UFC 221’s charge is a fantastic match up between top-ranked Middleweight contenders, Yoel Romero (No. 1) and Luke Rockhold (No. 2), who will battle it out for the interim 185-pound strap. The winner of the bout will earn a future title unification bout against division champion, Robert Whittaker, who is currently recovering from a very serious series of scary illnesses.
Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Polynesian punching powerhouse — and combat sports legend — Mark Hunt will attempt to make one final push toward the top when he locks horns with a hungry up-and-comer nearly 20 years his junior, Curtis Blaydes, who is on a three-fight win streak.
The main event of the evening was scheduled to be an interim middleweight championship bout between Yoel Romero and Luke Rockhold. However,, leaving him ineligible to capture the interim crown. Should Rockhold choose to still accept the fight under these circumstances, then only he could win the interim 185-pound crown.
In the co-main event of the night, a showdown between two top-10 heavyweights will take center stage as No. 5-ranked contender Mark Hunt will take on No. 9-ranked Curtis Blaydes. The 26-year-old Blaydes, who’s riding a four-fight win streak in the UFC, will look to make an even bigger name for himself if he can pull off the upset of a veteran the caliber of Hunt. With the heavyweight division needing some contenders, Blaydes has a chance to really make a name for himself with a win on Saturday and climb up the rankings.
