Blaydes has fought more recently than Hunt, scoring a second-round TKO of Oleksiy Oliynyk at UFC 217 last November 4 in New York City. Those terms were not disclosed when the Sentinel went to press.

Now this Saturday in Perth, Romero will take advantage of Whittaker's withdrawal from the main event due to injury, this time battling Luke Rockhold (16-3) as a solid +130 underdog (bet $100 to win $130) at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

"No excuses. I am here for this fight with this guy".

Romero and American Luke Rockhold were scheduled to meet in a fight for the interim middle weight belt.

However, despite the two hour allotment to get his weight down, Romero was unable to hit the mark.

His first came against reigning UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker in July 2017 at UFC 213.

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 was clearly upset with his opponent following the first weigh in.

The victor of Saturday's scheduled five-round main event was to be granted with the interim middleweight belt and No. 1 contender status opposite Whittaker.

"Typical. Par for the course for Yoel Romero", Rockhold, moments after Romero missed weight on his first attempt, told FS1's Megan Olivi.
