Robert Whittaker out of UFC 221 with injury, Luke Rockhold to fight Yoel Romero for interim title

Robert Whittaker’s first title defense is going to have to wait. What was slated to be a homecoming for Whittaker at UFC 221 in Perth, Australia, has now been shelved. The middleweight champion suffered an undisclosed injury and his originally scheduled opponent Luke Rockhold will now fight Yoel Romero for an interim belt in the main event on Feb. 11. The news was first reported by ESPN and later confirmed by UFC’s Australia/New Zealand Twitter account who shared an article from The West Australian concerning Whittaker’s status. “I’m beyond disappointed that I’m unable to defend the title in my home country of Australia,” Whittaker said in a statement provided to both outlets. “I hope the fans ...

No need for another interim belt! :roll:
It is an interesting fight tho.Id give the edge to Yoel but his age could show?Dunno he looked ok in there with Whitaker altho he was getting tired and slowly worked over.

I would say Romero's loss was more impressive than Rockhold's last win considering their competition. Normally I'd be upset about not seeing Whitaker and Luke, but seeing as how Luke has managed to avoid Romero, it'll be nice to see if can actually hang with him. I'm personally not convinced.

:roll: Agree, bunch of clowns are running the show now. Makes no sense what so ever anymore, this delegitimizes the title so much.

Ultimate Freaking Circus strikes once again. Obviously it's a nice match but the interim title is just beyond sad.

When you hurt your knee shoulder or back it takes about two years to get back to normal. Most people keep trying to push through the injury and fuck it up even worse. Judging by this forums comments on chi or traditional chinese medicine. I am assuming that most people would go to a doctor who will probably fuck them up worse. Anyway the body is not meant to be pushed every day and I'm sure Whittaker pushed himself almost every day trying to get from TUF to Middleweight champ. Anyway good fucking fight. Rockhold with the suspect chin and Yoel with suspect cardio.

I doubt it, he likes and wants tough fights. He is probably disappointed that he isn't fighting for the title. I think Luke matches up well with Yoel, better than how he matches up with Whittaker. I do believe Luke has a great chance of beating both but this should be an easier fight for him stylistically. Luke's out put, cardio, and clinch game will be too much for Yoel. Yoel's output has decreased tremendously imo, Yoel still has a good chance of winning, but against a fighter who loves 5 round fights, and enjoys being in the deep waters. Yoel will drown if it goes to the championship rounds. Either way I see Luke winning by submission in the 4th round.

Luke needs to be careful when skipping back, because if he just relies on the right hook, Yoel can use his favorite combination of kicking the low leg and following with a left hand.
