UFC 221 will take place on 11th Feb, at Perth Arena in Perth, Australia

It features the long awaited fight between Romero & Rockhold

Romero is a skilled fighter and I watched his last fight with Chris Weidman during which weidman was hit by Romero with Knee while weidman was trying to take down Romero. Romero is a very calculated fighter and according to my observation will be a tough nut to crack by Rockhold.

Rockhold’s last loss against Bisping was disappointing back in June 2016 and it takes a lot of effort and time to get the thoughts together. I wish both fighters the best & my prediction is that Romero will win the fight and hopefully Rockhold will be able to give tough time to Romero.
In the last few fights it seemed as if Romero runs out of gas tank and needs to work on his stamina.

This fight will be for interim title contest

At first it was decided by UFC management to arrange a fight between Georges St-Pierre & interim champion Robert Whittaker to serve headliner for UFC 221 but after GSP was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, it was not possible. I wish GSP the best and would love to see him in action again soon..!

The main card also features the following bouts:

Heavyweight

Mark Hunt vs. Curtis Blaydes

Heavyweight

Tai Tuivasa vs. Cyril Asker

Welterweight

Jake Matthews vs. Li Jingliang

Light Heavyweight

Tyson Pedro vs. Saparbek Safarov
