Romero vs. Rockhold, presented by AirAsia, kicked into high gear as athletes from the main and co-main events warmed up with an open workout session at Elizabeth Quay, Perth, ahead of this Sundays pay-per-view event.
Nevertheless, one ought to note that since Romero missed weight he wasn't eligible to win the Interim UFC Middleweight title.
UFC 221 Perth live updates, results, stream, video: Yoel Romero vs Luke Rockhold, Mark Hunt vs Curtis Blaydes - get all the action and news here!. Both fighters have serious knock out power and I don't expect this fight to reach the third round.
In the lead up to Perth's first ever UFC event, Parr has been spending a lot of time withe UFC Middleweight contender Chris Weidman, and the two seem to be inseparable.
Romero landed 53 percent of his strikes, targeting Rockhold's head 61 percent of the time.

Former UFC middleweight champ Luke Rockhold's (16-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC) quest to regain UFC gold suffered a blow in Saturday's UFC 221 main event. Rockhold, who I think is the best fighter in his division, will be looking to win this one to get himself a shot at the belt.
"Yes, I think in the first round I took two kicks and I'm pretty sure that it broke my leg", Romero revealed through a translator.
It's not that I had a problem with Luke Jumeau winning - I thought he would get the nod 29-28 against Daichi Abe - but when the scores read 29-27, 28-27 and 29-28, I would kind of like to know how those officials handed out the eights, nines and 10s to arrive at those totals.
Romero did not appear at Saturday's post-fight press conference because he was transported to the hospital.
But when Whittaker contracted a staph infection and was forced to pull out in January, Romero stepped in on short notice.
