Yoel Romero accepted the short notice fight against Luke Rockhold and couldn’t make weight at UFC 221. Rockhold demanded more money and got 30 percent from Romero’s purse.  Yoel  fought the former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and  knocked him out cold in the 3rd round at the UFC 221 main event in Perth, Australia. Twitter reactions, as always, were creative after the fight.

Romero vs Whittaker 2 is what makes the most sense but just feels so weird with Romero missing weight and not winning the interim title tonight.. who doesn’t wanna see that one again tho?! #ufc221
