Yoel Romero failed to make weight for his UFC fight against Luke Rockhold in Perth

Romero weighed in at 188 pounds - three pounds over the limit for title fights - and cut only to 187.7 on his second try three hours later.

Yoel Romero missed weight ahead of his UFC 221 headliner against Luke Rockhold, and as a result, will not be eligible to win the interim middleweight title Sunday in Perth, Australia.

An agreement was eventually reached, saving the main event, though some of the shine was certainly taken off the first Australian pay-per-view since UFC 193.

Israel seeks peace but will defend itself against Iran: Netanyahu
Israel has largely confined its operations to targeting Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shia militant group that is a key ally of Iran . An hour later, Israeli jets were dispatched and sent to attack the base in Syria where the drone came from.

Before we get to the action on the main card, however, the UFC has compiled a great preliminary card for fight fans to enjoy. Those terms were not disclosed when the Sentinel went to press. "I feel like I can compete still with these young guys, even though they're half my age". Rockhold, meanwhile, rebounded from losing his title to Michael Bisping at UFC 199 by pounding out David Branch in September.

Above is live video of the event's post-fight press conference which kicks off approximately 30 minutes after the main event between Romero and Rockhold comes to a close (courtesy of the UFC).

Rockhold and Romero had to be separated during their face-off at the first weigh-in.

"Be a professional", Rockhold later added.
