Video: Watch UFC 221 headliner Luke Rockhold take out Lyoto Machida in 2015
Before getting a shot at the UFC middleweight title, Luke Rockhold went on quite the run, and it included a 2015 meeting with ex-champion Lyoto Machida.
At UFC on FOX 15 in 2015, Rockhold picked up his fourth straight victory – and his third fight-night bonus in that span – with his performance against Machida. It set up a title-winning victory over Chris Weidman in his next fight.
Check out the full fight with Machida above.
UFC 221 takes place Sunday (but airs live in North America on Saturday due to the time difference) at Perth Arena in Perth, Western Australia, and the main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Rockhold and Romero fight for an interim title while champ Robert Whittaker recovers from a staph infection.
