Luke Rockhold arrives on camel, Yoel Romero teaches salsa dancing at UFC 221 open workouts

There were some rather unique sights going on during today’s UFC 221 open workout, especially when it came to the entrance of event headliner Luke Rockhold.

Rockhold (16-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC), who meets Yoel Romero (12-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) for the interim middleweight title in Saturday’s UFC 221 main event at Perth Arena in Perth, Western Australia, made a grand arrival to the open workouts via camel back – yes – camel back.

The former champ Rockhold has never been hesitant to explore his adventurous side. Ahead of his pay-per-view clash with Romero, which follows prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, he did just that with the memorable entrance

After open workouts, Rockhold explained why he came in on a camel.

“These things just come to me,” Rockhold said. “Some people arrive on cherriots, some people pick white horses. Here in Perth, I choose camels.”

Romero, No. 4 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, was not to be totally outdone by No. 3-ranked Rockhold, though. “The Solider of God” got creative during his open workout, inviting several fans on stage for an impromptu salsa dancing lesson.
