    After Romero, Costa had 2 losses. Thus Romero completed his mission in efficiently destroying all the MW contenders, he cleaned the whole division and left to Bellator.

    Maybe. But Paolo changed Yoel's face for real. Kinda like Yoel did to The Chris.

    I dont see it that way. I think Izzy took his soul. The Romero fight was great and a brawl but O don't feel it diminished Paulo. Izzy fucked him up with Calf kicks

    No he didn't. Whittaker is the one that broke Romero's orbital. Yoel had some swelling under his left eye after the Costa fight but Costa looked way more beat up at the end of that fight.

    Costa fell off because after the Yoel fight he became a big name, and started making significantly more money. He got spoiled and undisciplined.

    If anything that fight made Costa think himself the terminator for succesfully walking down a monster. His soul will always belong to Izzy.

    Similar to me.

    I had Romero > Costa he’s landed some brutal shit on Costa

    I had Romero Whittaker 2 Draw - Favoring Romero on a split

    I had Romero Izzy Draw - favoring Izzy on a split

    Did Yoel even look messed up after the fight? I need to find a pic.

    edit:

    A good breakdown of who fighters, fans etc thought won https://www.mmafighting.com/2020/9/...-review-paulo-costa-vs-yoel-romero-at-ufc-241

    The second round was the deciding factor and Yoel did the most damage and surprisingly out struck him the entire fight. Imagine Yoel having higher output lol.

    Whittaker vs Romero 2 - Draw
    Romero vs Izzy - Romero 48-47 (I hadn't seen some get on their bike in a title fight like Izzy did since WB did in the Woodley rematch)
    Costa/Romero - I think I had Costa winning

    Nah Yoel and him just had a brutal fight. Izzy beat Costa before the fight. I believe Israel is the better fight but Costa really shit the bed by choking. He didn't perform to the best of his abilities.
