UFC 221 was supposed to crown a new interim middleweight champion but it went off the tracks Saturday when Yoel Romero missed weight meaning he couldn’t win the belt and then defeated Luke Rockhold anyway. The middleweight division is in a bit of chaos right now. To prove my point, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman has thrown his name out there for a shot against current champ Robert Whittaker. Chris is 1-3 in his last four and his one win is against former welterweight Kelvin Gastelum making his claim to a title shot unrealistic. Still, check out what he had to say.

In this latest hype video a focused Rockhold says he will break Romero in their bout this Saturday, February 10th in Australia. Check it out.

Luke Rockhold was the middleweight champion but is still very outspoken. It’s no secret that the 185 pound division is in complete disarray because of “money fights”. Michael Bisping rematched Dan Henderson and then fought a returning Georges St. Pierre while Rockhold, Yoel Romero, Robert Whittaker, and Jacare all sat waiting for a shot. Rockhold spoke his mind to the MMA Hour and held nothing back not even on the topic of Dana White. Check it out.
Beef may be a strong term but it may apply here. Joe Rogan and long time friend Brendan Schaub go at it over the state of the middleweight division and interim titles then switch to Michael Bisping and his legacy. Check it out.
