“UFC 221: Rockhold vs. Romero” takes place Saturday night inside Perth Arena in Perth, Australia.
UFC Fight Pass streams the first three preliminary bouts live starting at 6:30PM ET/3:30PM PT. Fox Sports 1 airs the remaining four prelims at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
The pay-per-view broadcast begins immediately after at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
An interim middleweight title tilt headlines the gig – sort of… Yoel Romero came in 2.7 pound heavy at Friday’s weigh-ins, so “The Soldier of God” will not leave Australia with the belt even if he’s victorious. However, Luke Rockhold will take home the manufactured crown if he beats Romero.
For accepting the bout, Rockhold will be rewarded with 30 percent of Romero’s show money.
Heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Mark Hunt serve as the co-main event.
