    Im in Perth. Im not paying $500 for a fight night card now that Robbie is out. Couldnt give a shit about Rockhold/Romero.

    i think this fight is far more dangerous for rockhold

    but i see him edging out the decision

    I actually think Gastelum would've been a better replacement.

    Scary fight for Rockhold. I think he might end up the same way as Weidman

    I got Yoel for this one.

    He has better hands and kicks will not be common. Grappling is a wash.

    This is a real one imo well this was the reason interim belts were created.

    Damage is part of the scoring system. Whitaker won the fight because Romero slipped in Round 5, and Whitaker landed on top of him.

    It is obvious that Romero did the most damage in that fight. Whitaker hasn't been able to walk ever since.

    MMA is NOT real fighting. It is a game with scores. LOL

    it is still a very good fight but I'm with you , Robbie was supposed to be the main attraction for this event the first Australian Champ defending his title on home soil in Perths first UFC event .

    Whirlwind of emotions here. I'm excited for Yoel vs. Rockhold because its a fantastic fight. I'm excited for Yoel to get another shot because I worry about how many fights he has left. I'm worried that if Yoel wins the rematch there won't do much for fans. I'm skeptical that people in Australia will give a shit about these two.

    Like I said in another post.

    Yoel refused this fight 1 fight ago claiming he would only fight Luke in a 3 round fight. Refused to take a 5 round fight vs Luke.

    He is taking this fight out of desperation for a title.

    Luke wins this.

    It should be for no belt. It should be "closing time" for Yoel Romero.

    Then they can have a Rockhold v Weidman rematch whatever scenario plays out. Rockhold & Weidman aren't going to fight a second time for "interim".

    just because the card is weak in star power doesnt give an inclination that the card will be shit. Actually the past few fight pass and fight night cards ive checked out have been great. these guys usually go out and deliver. im not guaranteeing the card is gonna be fireworks but dont judge a book by its cover . feel me?

    Seems too soon to issue yet another interim title. Afaik whittaker vs bisping was never announced, so whittaker being injured didnt really matter at the time, they were going ahead with the GSP fight regardless. So basically this is his first time pulling out of a fight.

    Romero vs rockhold is a cool fight though, l like it better as luke didnt really deserve a title shot for sitting out so long and only beating Branch. Now the winner will be a clear #1 contender in my eyes, but the interim thing is still stupid.
