    Yoel is pissing clean, if Yoel was allowed to take peds like prime Wand, Yoel would demolish anyone put in front of him.

    Wand was the Yoel of the early to mid 2000s

    Wand would punt his head into the second row.

    Just the fact that say you are my elder in this sport and life shows me you are a prepubescent troll as a grown man doesn't speak like that. You have shown your ignorance of MMA history multiple times in your replies. Wanderlei is an all time great and no disrespect to Romero who is a skilled but dirty fighter.

    You probably think Ngannou beats prime Fedor or Nog too right because of evolution if the sport. Its such a myth and hype trains always end.

    I remember. He fought half-defenseless tiny Japanese guys, 75% of which dropped Wanderlei at some point in the fights.

    He was a more powerful Diego Sanchez. Walked forward, left hook, right hook, left hook, right hook, left hook, right hook.

    Interesting fight. Despite the weight classes Wanderlei and Yoel would be roughly same size if they fought(Malki Kawa just said Yoel was something like 215lbs when he got the call to fill in for the fight against Luke).

    I would be pretty surprised if anyone in this thread hasn’t seen prime Wanderlei.

    I was a pride fanatic but I’d still favor Yoel via wrestling.

    he ate bombs from rampage and chuck and mark hunt and cro cop (first fight and also many big shots in 2nd fight) and I think he ate plenty of haymakers from hendo in their 2 fights.

    The 2nd Cro cop fight, the 2nd Hendo fight is what weakened his chin and the 3rd rampage fight is what destroyed it.

    Wand would not let him reload.

    He had great cardio.

    Wand stops him 8 minutes into the first round

    This. Prime Wand would have a punchers chance but Romero would have many more ways to win the fight.

    Wand in his prime was a sloppy brawler with no TD or ground game. Yoel beats him.

    Yeah, a white Brazilian with blue eyes looks like a black Cuban.

    Everyone's a racist, it's just what level of racism you fall into. Basic tribalism boy. Nature's funny like that.

    So, yes you're a racist, and also need to put some glasses on.

    Oh, and as someone whose grandmother is an immigrant from Sao Paulo. Brazil has the third most whites in the world behknd England and US.

    Oh...also... Brazil is a country not a race.

    I think Arona was a better fighter than Romero. Let's not forget that he gave Fedor arguably his toughest fight ever not counting losses. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think Arona would have been a dominant UFC champ.

    His skillset would have been better served in the cage.

    Not buying it. I don't give a fuck how genetically gifted you are. I've spent nearly my entire life in a gym, and thats not a natural physique.

    Wandy was juiced to the gills too, but if you believe that Romero is anything close to natural, you don't know shit about muscle growth and human physiology.
