While he may not have got his hands on UFC gold, Yoel Romero almost certainly set-up a rematch with UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker by knocking out Luke Rockhold in vicious fashion.

With his trademark patient fighting style, Romero exploded into action in the third stanza as a huge left hand knocked Rockhold to the mat before another left sealed the deal against the cage.
