    Um, NO. Weidman, Rockhold, and Jacare were all top 5 when he beat them.

    He's grabbing his wrist, retard. Not his glove.

    I did. I'm not seeing a difference. And if you wanna nitpick and claim his fingers accidentally slid into the gloves (which I'm not seeing), that's too bad because that was just Romero's movement causing it to happen and he was already rocked and eating uppercut after uppercut by that point anyway.

    You might want to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist.

    LOL. A guy without ever having a strap. With a clear loss to the current champ, with a PED history, a weight scandal, and a highly questionable between rounds scandal the GOAT????

    What does Romero smear on his balls that keeps you guys coming back to suckle?

    I agree. It is clearly a legal wrist lock for the majority of that exchange. The angle and direction of the way Romero was pulling the arm away let to that slight dig in with the fingers for literally a fraction of a second. Meanwhile you needed to carbon 14 date the amount of time Romero spent on his chair between rounds.

    He’s not the champ, he’s never been champ of the premier MMA organization, and beyond that, he has never defended the belt (that he hasn’t even won).

    No.

    Weidman is much higher than Romero in all-time MW rankings.

    He's very close:

    1-Weidman
    2-Yoel
    3-Mousasi
    4-Rockhold
    5-Whittaker

    Prime Anderson would kick his face off and tell him he luuh him afterwards. Then give him a big kiss. That's what MW in the UFC is all about. Whittaker better start kissing some dudes or his days are numbered.
