Jussier Formiga of Brazil submits Ben Nguyen in their flyweight bout during the UFC 221 event at Perth Arena on February 11, 2018 in Perth, Australia.

Robert Whittaker was originally expected to face Georges St-Pierre for the title, but St-Pierre vacated it and Whittaker, the interim champion, became the undisputed champion. We will bring you all the results starting at 3:30 PM Pacific Time.

Shaw does admit that the weight issues did put a little bit of a damper on the UFC 221 festivities.

"Hey he came out like I know he would, swinging for the fences, trying to knock me out", Blaydes said afterwards. Luke Rockhold, shown on December 12, 2015, in Las Vegas.

As the fight began it was Rockhold who settled into the bout the quickest, establishing his rhythm and using a combination of left jabs and low kicks to keep Romero on the back foot.

It was a tactic the 26-year-old upstart would turn to eight more times over the final two rounds to grind out a unanimous decision victory over the veteran knockout artist, earning him the biggest win of his career and pushing his unbeaten streak to five.

Whittaker was initially meant to fight Rockhold in Perth on Sunday in what would have been his first title defence.


Romero hit the accelerator button in the 3rd round of the fight and finished off his American opponent with a combination which was plastered all over the internet.

Yoel Romero turns 41 next month, but the former Olympic silver medalist continues to compete at an elite level inside the Octagon.

Yes, Romero missed weight this past weekend for the Rockhold fight, but he took the bout on four weeks' notice. He got the TKO stoppage just 2:18 into the first round. However, Romero had an extra two hours of weight cutting and will have to fight less than 24 hours later.

Romero had the breakthrough moment when he jumped forward with a big right followed by a huge left that sent Rockhold crushing to the canvas, before a left hand on the floor left Rockhold, cold.

Tyson Pedro kicked off the main card by gripping and ripping a nasty kimura on Saparbek Safarov.

- Tai Tuivasa def. Cyril Asker, heavyweights, KO, first round (2:18).
