    My favourite fighter of the past 5 years Is honestly the Soldier of God Yoel Romero. I just love the way the man explodes in the shortest of bursts to drastically change a fight outcome and leaving the opponents crippled. For some reason i just don't care if he does the shady octagon shit, i don't know why i just don't and get a kick out of Tim Kennedy and The Chris getting upset over it.

    The man low key is full of entertainment.
    - Stoolgate
    - Gay Jesus
    - He made "Boi" cool before kratos did
    - Those fukin flips during the entrance and the marches at the end
    - On Why he kissed Luke rockhold after giving him a shoryuken. 'But you know what? if you have to fight, you need to have respect. I fought Lyoto Machida; I have a great respect for Lyoto Machida. I fought Robert Whittaker; I have a great respect for Lyoto Machida'

    He is also the only fighter to get his USADA suspension reduced due to tainted supplements. He didn't take a deal to snitch, he submitted one sample of the supplements and boom was exonerated and is suing the company responsible unlike Jones who submitted 14 samples and nothing came back to support it. Well done to the Reaper for surviving 50 minutes with him. He lost some limbs and probably a few years of his life to etch out wins against him (thought 2nd fight was a draw tbh). For me he is like the Luis Ortiz of boxing forever old, forever dangerous and forever avoided (luckily in MMA you can't duck as much as you can in boxing).

    i don't know how many years the Mutant Ninja turtle has left, but for this sherdogger it's been a privilege to watch.

    ROMERO BLESS
    SEE U SOON BOI

    It's so unfortunate that people claim he cheated on stoolgate which started the which hunt of calling him a cheater on everything, which we now know was fake news, with all sides confirming that Yoel wasn't to blame for the stoolgate.

    But WHATEVER, this boy just signed an 8 fight deal, so the rivers of american and brazilian tears will flow and the Soldier of God will keep soldiering on.

    Me 2 bro, he had to spend so much time in germany so that he can leave cuba behind and struggled to get fights so his career stalled for awhile

    If that’s all that comes to mind then I suggest you watch JRE with Joey Diaz translating for Yoel. It will clear a few things up for you and then you might actually have an informed opinion!

    Here you go:

    I wish he got into the UFC / mma earlier, started too late. Never really has a boring fight which you don't expect from a wrestler.

    Listened to it the day it came out, my man. Regardless of his excuses for the delay against Tim Kennedy, he has missed weight for his last two fights but still insists on staying at MW.

    He needs to move up.

    The only person I felt bad for in those gifs was Lyoto, those elbows were murderous.

    If that’s your take away then you weren’t listening, my man.

    WAR ROMERO

    I'm a huge fan, Yoel is one of the very few must-watch fighters, can't miss a second of his fights.
    He has a very unique style for a wrestler that makes him absolutely amazing to watch.
