    MMA, where every crime gets pardoned as long as you give a highlight reel KO.

    He went into the fight with a leg injury, which probably why he missed weight. He just didn't say it out loud because he didn't want Luke to take advantage of it during the fight.

    If its the case, Luke was in better shape going in than Yoel was. But as the Khabib-Trujillo fight, which was eerily similar, the better shape guy lost. Even if the court of public opinion thinks the injured guy had it easier or was lazy, which isn't the case.

    Yep.I mean the only reason there was an interim belt is because this was PPV. If this was a Fight Night card, or UFC on Fox, would've been dubbed #1 contender fight.

    I feel like Yoel had a backroom deal with Dana to allow him to miss a weight cut up to a certain amount if he is willing to come in and fight on 4 weeks notice. Dana is normally furious at fighters for missing weight but this time he was rather calm about it. Yoel as well, didn't see any urgent expression during the weigh-in. This is all guessing, I am not claiming I have any evidence to back this up.

    What? A deal with Dana, lol?

    Missing weight for athletes at this level is unacceptable, period.

    Wasn't overly close, BUT Yoel always had a solid chance in those limbs of his. I believe Rob finishes him this time with no injuries.

    Both are great fighters and I like both guys, but just like Whittaker will likely have a different approach/gameplan, Romero will too.

    That's your definition and you are welcome to it. I say it was well managed clear victory by Rob. To me a 'way too close' fight requires the decent possibility that it could go either way in a decision.

    It’s the only fight to be had....Then Weidman vs Jacare for next one. That’s the easiest and fairest way, seeing that Luke got KTFO.

    Jacare, he beat Romero. Decision was a robbery. They should rematch for next title shot. Or just give it to Jacare.
