It’s another fight week! UFC 221 in Perth, Australia was supposed to feature Robert Whittaker defending his middleweight title against Luke Rockhold, but numerous health problems forced Whittaker off the card, so an interim title between Rockhold and Yoel Romero will now serve as the main event.

The co-main features heavyweight favorite Mark Hunt going up against up-and-coming American Curtis Blaydes. Speaking of heavyweights, prospect Tai Tuivasa looks for another win inside the Octagon, as he fights Frenchman Cyril Asker. Jake Matthews battles Li Jingliang at welterweight, and light heavyweights Tyson Pedro and Saparbek Safarov kick off the main card. Yes, this PPV is $65, just like UFC 220.

Technically this is a Sunday card, but the time zone difference means this is a normal Saturday night timeslot in North America. Here’s what the UFC 221 fight card looks like:
