We are going to have to wait just a little bit longer for undisputed champion Robert Whittaker to make his first title defense. The Aussie basher withdrew from his scheduled UFC 221 scrap with Luke Rockhold having an injury, setting up an interim title match involving Rockhold and Cuban Yoel Romero instead.
The title fight serves as the main event of a card that is filled with talented natives, like Mark Hunt, Tai Tuivasa, Jake Matthews and Tyson Pedro. While it was rumored that women’s strawweight champion Cris”Cyborg” Justino would make a quick turnaround to confront Invicta FC champ Megan Anderson, it appears the tilt will happen on a later date.
Even though a couple of fights are still being finalized, take a peek at the announced lineup below. Be sure that you check in during combat week to get comprehensive betting previews.

What to Watch For
Romero will get a 2nd straight opportunity to claim interim gold. The 40-year old former Olympian was took to task by Robert Whittaker in his last matchup, however he did have his moments. He remains among the most dangerous middleweights on the planet, capable of surprising outbursts of fight-ending violence.
Rockhold is coming from another round TKO of former WSOF champion David Branch, and his only loss in his past seven conflicts came through flash courtesy of Michael Bisping. A thudding kicker having an elite submission wrestling game, Rockhold presents a fascinating challenge for its aging Romero – and Whittaker as well.
Mark Hunt is a staple on any European card, since the New Zealander is arguably the region’s biggest celebrity. The slugger will examine No. 9 Curtis Blaydes, who will do everything he can to bring this fight to the mat. In a different heavyweight collision, undefeated Tai Tuivasa will seem to keep his 100 percent KO ratio intact if he meets France’s Cyril Asker.
You have gotta love the matchup between Australia’s Jake Matthews and Li Jingliang. The Chinese fighter would be the UFC’s greatest hope of creating a native star for the world’s most populous nation, and Matthews is precisely the sort of guy who can test him.
26-year older Tyson Pedro is much-needed young blood at light heavyweight, though his prospects were subdued somewhat in his last outing against Ilir Latifi. It was the Australian’s first reduction, and he will not get an easy bounceback fight. Pedro matches the hard-hitting Saparbek Safarov in what should be an explosive affair.
