    look at his record for fuuck sakes.

    He doesn’t just win he literally beats you in brutal fashion like never seen before in mma.

    Machida destroyed
    Weirdman destroyed
    Rockhold destroyed
    Jacare beat easily despite haters trying to make it sound close
    Whitaker 2 whooped the 27 yr old prime Whitaker yet gets fuucked by judging

    Romero fuucking hurts ppl

    Whitaker basically beat him on one leg the first fight and that wasn't a bad decision. I see what you're saying though. You may could make the argument he has the most explosive, short burst destructive power but he's not the total package nearly to the extent of many others and certainly not up there with Mighty Mouse, JJ, Connie Mac, and the list goes on. He's a physical freak though and his berserker moments are so overwhelming, they're always very very dangerous at any point in the fight and when they get through the opponents' defense, he destroys people so devastatingly that it shocks and impresses. I guess it is subjective in a sense though. In the Weidman fight, I see a fighter in Romero who was being out timed and maneuvered...beaten but for a flying knee from hell. Does that make it not a legit win? No. Not an impressive win? No. But it does take a bit of the shine off for me and IMO he's nowhere near the best pound for pound fighter although he may be the one with the most destructive potential...I feel like I'm repeating myself. That is all.

    I'm nowhere near 40, and I couldn't possibly do 1/10 of the stuff Romero does!

    GOAT in my eyes.

    Bobby Knuckles fought 4 and some rounds after breaking his hand in the first. Also fought and won a five rounder after having his knee wrecked in the first minute against him in their first fight.
    Bobby Knuckles out grits Romero. Fact.

    Jacare showed him who was boss in that fight.
    Whitaker beat him twice.

    He’s a beast for sure and an amazingly terrifying fighter. But P4P best he is not. He’s not even the best Middleweight. He’s 3rd behind Whitaker and GSP :)

    Don't forget when he beat prime fedor and prime andy!

    I would put those somewhere around his "wins" over Whittaker

    Romero is the greatest cheater in MMA history.

    Stalls between rounds, misses weight on purpose to have an advantage because he can't even make the weight class weight he is supposed to be fighting for a title in, pops for PEDs and gets off on the funniest "Tainted supplements" joke I've ever heard and has been excused by Sherdog for every single thing.

    Unmatched greatest cheater in MMA. You know USADA is dying to know.

    He lost rounds to a one handed Fighter. Not something MM would be doing.
