Yoel Romero scored a vicious knock-out victory against Luke Rockhold to steal the show in the main event to remind fans of his remarkable punching power. It ended the fight.

It's a shame Yoel Romero didn't make weight, otherwise he'd be leaving Australia with UFC gold. After splitting the first two frames on most scorecards, Romero eliminate the need for the judges in the third, icing Rockhold with two ideal shots that left him slumped over and sleep along the fence.

The Soldier of God was incredibly lucky this opportunity against Luke Rockhold fell into his lap and was even more lucky when the promotion's president, Dana White, was oddly chill about his failure to make weight for the bout. That story turned into a bit of a charade, as Bisping ignored legitimate title contenders and went on a Money Tour, involving fights against Dan Henderson and Georges St-Pierre. But when it comes down to it, Romero missed weight and as impressive as the performance was against Rockhold, it's hard to reward him for coming in at 187.7lbs, 2.7lbs above the 185lbs middleweight title fight limit. Luke Rockhold, shown on December 12, 2015, in Las Vegas. "There was no worry whatsoever in terms of cardio".

There was, of course, no belt for Romero. However, with the Cuban missing weight, now. He initially weighed 188 pounds but got down to only 187.7 with a two-hour allotment. Meanwhile, Rockhold will be looking to wear Romero out and finish this one in impressive fashion. "Some (expletive) as usual". That came when middleweight champ Robert Whittaker dropped out of the originally scheduled title fight due to injury. Romero was fined 30 percent of his purse last weekend, a substantial chunk of change.

Twin bomb blasts strike mosque in Libya's Benghazi; one dead, 129 wounded
The blasts follow twin vehicle bombings outside a mosque in Benghazi after prayers on January 24 that left almost 40 people dead. Libya descended into chaos after the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed ruler Moamar Gaddafi.

Had he beaten Romero, Rockhold might have made a decision to stick around for a crack at Whittaker but after falling to his second defeat in three fights, a move 20lbs north can't be far away for the 33-year-old veteran. He was recovering from a pulled hamstring, when he suffered a staph infection in his stomach and a bout with chickenpox.

Rockhold appears to be in good spirits, though, who took to social media to congratulate the victor. Whittaker has the unenviable task of defeating Romero for an interim title, and now defeating him again in an immediate rematch in his first defense.

That fight could take place as early as June.
