In light of the recent news that former welterweight champion George St-Pierre is returning to make his middleweight debut against current middleweight champion Michael Bisping; another man who should be fighting for the title is Yoel Romero.
Romero is a freestyle wrestler with an Olympic silver medal to his name. an accomplished freestyle wrestler who took his experience from the mat into the Octagon. Entering the sport later in life at 32, but since he made the transition he has been a wrecking ball.
Coming into UFC with a 5 – 1 – 0 record in 2013 and has since racked up a 13 – 1 – 0 record with wins over former middleweight champion Chris Weidman and former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida as well as Ronaldo Souza and Tim Kennedy.
Not only that, he is a knockout artist, with 11 of his 13 wins coming from KO. He has 1 knockout of the night, 2 fights of the night and 2 performances of the night to his name. Also, he’ll be 40 in a couple of weeks, it would be good to see a Romero title run before it’s too late.
