Whittaker has withdrawn from his UFC 221 title defense against Luke Rockhold because of an undisclosed injury. Yoel Romero will replace Whittaker and face Rockhold on February 10,2018 for the interim title. The new booking also affects UFC Fight Night (formally UFC on FOX 28 ) in Orlando Florida on Feb 24th were Romero originally was set to fight David Branch. It is uncertain if Branch will remain on the card against a new opponent or if Mike Perry, Orlando’s home town fighter (11wins-2 losses) will be bumped up to the main event against Max Griffin.
