    He could be a character from Street Fighter, or a bad guy in an action movie, the soldier of god is in fact one of the most exciting fighters we have seen in MMA history.

    1- He's the A level athlete we were all waiting for

    "he launches himself in the air... and he's 200 pounds" Joe Rogan

    2- World champion and silver medalist in the olympics, he is an elite wrestler

    [​IMG]

    I have never seen Weidman being manhandled like that

    3- He does not rely only on his wrestling, in fact his striking arsenal is creative and diversified

    [​IMG]

    4- He is spectacular, and gave us one of the most incredible KOs

    [​IMG]

    5- He has great striking defense (in this gif he implemented the cross-armed guard)

    [​IMG]

    6- He has great fight IQ (explode and reload)

    He uses feints, makes you think he's tired, slows his pace, and then brutally changes the rhythm of the fight

    [​IMG]

    7- His indestructible faith in god gives him the greatest motivation

    Believer or not, you have to admit faith gives strength to those who firmly believe they are driven by a superior force. Romero is not confident. He just thinks he's a soldier of God himself. No one can touch him.

    8 - He is charismatic

    He definitely has more personality than Weidman or Whittaker for example. That aura around him contributes to his popularity among mma fans

    [​IMG]

    Bonus : Let's not be naïve. He's shady as f*uck, but eh, he has not officially popped yet so let's enjoy this crazy monster while we can :)

    Sure, TS. Yoel is great and all, but he always seem to end up no 2.. Silver medalist in wrestling, Always loses titlefights in mma, and he is not getting any younger, so I don't think he is the ultimate fighter.

    ...Sadly, he will be forgotten in a couple of years, as he never did anything great... We will however remember all the other guys mentioned in the thread... Whittaker, Bisping, Weidman, Rogan, Luke, Machida, as they were all world champs at some point. And Rogan is Rogan.

    Maybe, one day, he'll even make weight for a title fight.

    He is 41 years old with a million miles of wear and tear - and that's why he is so incredible - manhandling Whitaker (he was beaten up despite being gifted a "win") and the other elite MWs. The 41 year old Romero would also have destroyed a 41 year old Rand Couture with ease.

    This and only this.

    The guy is always the bridesmaid and never the bride - the black Donald Cerrone, Uriah Faber or Chael Sonnen. So why is everyone so obsessed with this B leaguer tho? Because he is big, black and muscled up. This place is Cuckistan, and that's the only reason why he's loved.

    #10-He answered "YES", when Dana asked him, point blank, "Do you want to be an Ultimate Fighter?"

    He gave half of these guys brain damage at 40 years old lmao. 'Never did anything great', you're a clear example of a retard.

    You sound like a bitter, fat neckbeard. Get out of the basement and go work out.

    He did officially pop though, they just couldn't prove intent, he still had PED's in his system.

    He actually would not have destroyed a 41 year old Randy. If he could do what he does at 41 without the horse meat, he would be great, but ummmm......

    Maybe that is his "special diet"

    Or maybe it is magic...
