Just one major UFC card in February and it is Saturday night from Perth Arena at Australia (struggle is Sunday Down Under) as Luke Rockhold takes on fill-in challenger Yoel Romero for its interim middleweight belt. It is the only name fight on the card. Per usual, the main card will start at 10 p.m. ET and on pay-per-view. The prelims are on Fox Sports 1. Following is a look at the main fights. The UFC made its debut in Australia with UFC 110 in February 2010. The organization’s first card in Western Australia, will be its 12th in the country. Let’s have a look the top UFC 221 betting odds for this particular Saturday.
UFC 221 Betting Odds, Predictions & Picks UFC 221 Betting Odds: Rockhold (+135) / Romero (-160) The Cuban Romero is the No. 1 contender in the middleweight division along with also the American Rockhold the No. 2. Rockhold is -140 at Mybookie.ag with Romero at +120 and also an over/under of 1.5 rounds. So who is the winner? Australian Robert Whittaker, but he was made to pull against Rockhold due to injury — the most important reason the card is in Australia was because of Whittaker. “I have gone into several struggles hurt,” Whittaker said this week. “I moved to the Yoel Romero fight with a torn MCL, I moved to multiple conflicts with broken hands, and that’s never deterred me. And through my homework and also my camp, I did my hamstring — I did blow my hamstring out — but I was willing to work around it. We just worked around it, threw it on the wall, no explosive sort of material, then I got an abscess disease. That absolutely knocked me from the park.” While he was formerly able to train around his hamstring injury, the infection ended up departing”The Reaper” bedridden for many weeks, and Whittaker believes that the loopholes of his immune system might have led to his ensuing battle with chickenpox as well. Chickenpox in adults can be very serious, even deadly.
When Was the Last Time Robert Whittaker Fought?
Whittaker continue fought in July, beating Romero by unanimous conclusion. He has not confronted Rockhold. Georges St-Pierre won the middleweight title this past year over Michael Bisping in UFC 217 but vacated it since he could not defend it in due time due to his own health concerns. Whittaker subsequently won the interim belt Romero. A former UFC champion, Rockhold is coming from a TKO win over David Branch in September. Rockhold lost his title to Bisping at UFC 199 at June 2016. In terms of remarkable differential (the difference between significant strikes landed per minute and important strikes absorbed per second ) Rockhold includes a substantial edge over Romero. His striking differential from the UFC is plus-2.50, while Romero’s is currently plus-0.77. But during his UFC career, Romero has scored six knockdowns at a speed of 0.78 knockdown per 15 minutes. Rockhold only includes two knockdowns via eight-career UFC fights. Additionally, he’s been on the receiving end of three knockdowns.
Mark Hunt (13-11) vs. Curtis Blaydes (8-1)

Hunt was cleared to go back to competition. Citing”medical issues,” Hunt was pulled out of November’s UFC Fight Night 121 headliner in Sydney, a conclusion had been made later Hunt admitted to memory loss and slurred speech at a piece he composed for PlayersVoice.com.au titled,”If I perish fighting, that is fine.” Hunt, already with a single lawsuit against the UFC, jeopardized another in the aftermath of the advertising’s decision to pull him out of UFC Sydney. He predicted UFC President Dana White a”bald-headed prick” at a scathing Instagram post. Hunt maintained this suspension was punishment for the civil lawsuit he filed against the company, White and Brock Lesnar regarding Lesnar’s failed test at UFC 200. Hunt’s last fight occurred in May in UFC Fight Night 110, where he conquered Derrick Lewis via TKO in a slugfest”Fight of the Night.” After suffering a TKO loss to top contender Francis Ngannou in his promotional introduction, Blaydes, a 26-year-old former collegiate wrestler, has won four successive fights. Three of the wins — over Cody East, Adam Milstead and Oleksiy Oliynyk — arrived through knockout. Blaydes has completed seven of the eight career wins by knockout or technical knockout.
