Matches to Make After UFC 221

Tim Simpson with Irish boxer Jay Quigley and UFC fighter James “The Strabanimal” Gallagher

The third round saw more of the same, the duo duking it out at arms length before Romero suddenly unleashed a huge overhand left that caught Rockhold flush on the chin and sent him crashing to the canvas, before following it up with a vicious left uppercut as the referee jumped in to stop the fight. The Australian captured the then-interim middleweight title in his win over Romero and was later promoted to undisputed champion after Georges St-Pierre was forced to vacate his title. An Interim title bout was set up between former champ Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero, but since the latter missed weight, only Rockhold will be eligible to win the title.

Romero sat back and didn't do much through the first few minutes, although he did check a couple of those leg kicks that opened a small gash on Rockhold's shin. Rockhold, however, escaped a mostly uneventful first round, a scarier second, and made it to the third, but was derailed when Romero put the lights out.

Romero needed assistance leaving the cage with a badly injured leg and will likely need some time off to recover.

The Cuban veteran had Rockhold hurt with punches in the second, but was unable to get the finish.
