    Have we ever seen a wrestler as accomplished yet a lethal brutal striker as Romero?

    Usually you have bad ass wrestlers that suck at striking like Khabib or awesome strikers that suck at wrestling like the great Anderson but to be as complete as Romero is pretty uncommon.

    I dont think his striking is that good, obviously he has power, but his hands speed is mediocre, he has high fight iq thought and top wrestling

    hendo is a one dimensional striker that only rely on his power hand.romero got way more variety on feet and way better striking defense

    DC has better technical striking than romero and has utilised wrestling better than what we have seen from Romero

    don't you dare call Yoel a wrestler, that's an insult to him, he's way too exciting to be a wrestler.

    That's called fear of the takedown. If it was strictly kickboxing the results would be different. Plus they count strikes on the ground. It's good to be a grappler

    Bullshit. Watch his earlier fights. He KO'd guys in PRIDE with his left hand, right hand, knees, GnP. Hell, he ended Lombard with a head kick followed by a standing elbow when he was 45.

    that doesnt prove that hes not a bad technical striker,sure sometimes he can finish people other than his power hand but doesnt change the fact that he got no footwork,no striking defense and lack of variety on feet

    Agree to disagree I guess. I for one am impressed with his boxing and ability to consistent land on his opponent despite significant reach disadvantages. He was outstriking Vokan, not even in the clinch. I guess you could argue its the wrestling threat that creates those opportunities and not actual technique but I was still impressed
