On Saturday, Feb. 10 (in North America), the UFC will host UFC 221: Romero vs. Rockhold from the Perth Arena in Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

In the night’s main event, Olympic wrestling silver medalist Yoel Romero clashes with former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold for the interim middleweight title. The Cuban Romero saw an eight-fight Octagon winning streak snapped last July against current titleholder Robert Whittaker. Ten of his 12 career wins have come via knockout. Rockhold, meanwhile, rebounded from losing his title to Michael Bisping at UFC 199 by pounding out David Branch in September. The 33-year-old looks to earn a crack at the aforementioned Whittaker with a victory.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 10 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
