Because Luke Rockhold talked a lot of smack before UFC 221 it made his opponent go to a dark place. No not the dark place GSP said he went to before his bout with Nick Diaz.

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.
