    UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold


    Really interested in the main will Rockhold drop the ball again? Hunt should've followed Roy Nelson to Bellator we'll see if they threw him a easy one to keep him around. Blaydes has had a few fights can he beat a legend?

    Good card, IMO, some potentially hilarious matchups here.

    Rockhold rides out the Romero Rush and beats him by TKO in the later rounds. Rockhold is unfairly underrated due to his embarrassing loss from not taking Bisping seriously and I find it impossible to root for Roidmero.
    Blaydes beats Hunt by decision. I love Hunt, but Blaydes is much larger and has good wrestling which I doubt Hunt will be able to deal with. Hoping for yet another boss awesome KO by Hunt, though.
    I know nothing about Tuivasa, but I'm rooting for him regardless due to having a totally heterosexual man-crush on husky Samoan men. Tuivasa by TKO.
    I also know nothing about Safarov, but I like Pedro both for being a big punchy fellow and for having a hilarious name. I'll take Pedro via knockout, unless the Dagestani gene of being seriously scary in the cage is manifest in Safarov.
    Ishihara can get fucked.

    For those who missed the event

    Kim get the decision nice back and forth didn't see anything major from either guy. Adesanya with a bloody tko that 2nd round was a banger. Volkanovski with another 2nd round stoppage of the night. Formiga gets a spinning back fist into a sub good for him because he was losing that fight. Vet Pearson is still putting up the W's nice decision win for him. Quinonez gets the decision after 3 rounds. Jumeau takes the 3 round decision and another Japanese fighter take's an L. So far not a bad card still have the main event to watch can't wait to sign as Lukehold f's it up again.
    Fu Hung Hsieh remains Fu Hung Hsieh and Kung-tzu Yu remains Kung-tzu Yu.

    Well, that was a stunning KO by Romero. It wouldn't surprise me if Rockhold was Concussed when he got back up.
