UFC 221 Perth 2018
The UFC is coming to Perth for the first time. The Western Australian city will host UFC 221 and will see Cuba's Yoel Romero take on the USA's Luke Rockhold. If you're looking for UFC 221 tickets you will find a selection here at StubHub. While there have been several UFC Australia events, normally in Sydney and Melbourne, this is the first time the competition makes it way to Perth and the Perth Arena on 11 February 2018.
In a massive disappointment for Australian UFC fans, current UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker (who sees himself as representing both Australia and New Zealand when he fights) has pulled out of the February bout due to an undisclosed illness. It was then confirmed by UFC president Dana White that Whittaker is suffering from a serious Staph Infection. In the meantime, Yoel Romero has stepped in to take on Rockhold for the middleweight interim tile.
If you want to cheer on the Cuban or American, or just want to see some epic fighting, then get UFC 221 tickets Perth before they're all gone. This event is bound to be popular and both fighters have an intense respect for one another, so expect a great night of MMA action.
