    His orbital bone will never be the same and if I’m being honest his Reaper nickname is probably way more fitting now.

    Broke Cannonier’s arm.
    Ruined Till’s knee.
    Ruined York’s orbital bone.

    Romero never was the same after Whittaker took his soul was he?

    I remember everyone saying that Whitaker was damaged goods after those 2 wars but outside of the Izzy fight he's been sensational

    whittaker is proof you lose 1 fight and you're a bum to sherdog. he's mauled literally almost 99% of his opponents

    Romero went on to arguably beat Costa and Adesanya afterwards. He took nothing.

    romero's face hasn't been the same since and he hasn't won a fight since, either. that's the definition of ending someone

    The man's damn near 45.....seems like he's losing the battle to the undefeated Father Time more than anything.

    I'm don't even like Yoel but the guys 44 years old lmao, Rob did not take his soul. In fact, it's not a good look that Rob went life and death with a 41 year old.

    Cry? Remind me who is in the ufc on a 3 fight win streak over top contenders and who is on a 3 fight losing streak and was booted out of the organisation. We’re over here cheering.

    What? After the first loss to Whitaker he KO'd Rockhold. After the second loss he had a very exciting, very close fight with Costa that could've gone either way. Then in his last fight he lost a boring, but somewhat close decision to Israel. He may have slowed down abit, but I think that has more to do with him being in his mid forties, than it has to do with him losing to Bobby Knuckles. This thread seems very random.

    I blame Bisping for fighting 46 year old Dan Henderson in his first title defense when Yoel was on a 7 fight win streak.

    I don't know about his career, I thought Homero won the Izzy fight 1,2,5. And he almost beat Costa as well.

    But he definitely took a lot out of Romero. He fully shut out Romero's wrestling, and Romero never tried a grappling heavy gameplan again. And Romero 2, both took a lot of damage, but Whittaker demolished Romero's orbital, and I thought he noticeably slowed after Whittaker 2. It took a lot out of Whittaker as well though, I wouldn't say he took either his soul or his career. He definitely took his orbital though.

    Yoel was suspended at the time for tainted supplements wasn't he?

    It's true.

    Romero was afraid of wars after that fight, Costa walked him down and saluted him.

    Crazy how bad those beatings were on both.

    Aside from all the arguing in this thread it’s safe to say both men weren’t the same after the 2 wars they had with eachother

    His first fight back was around the same time as Bisping vs Hendo
