    First off... How does Paulo have a short leg reach than Yoel when Paulo stands 6'1 and Yoel stands 5'11-6'0..

    Second Yoel has one inch more reach than Paulo.

    Yoel is more athletic as in.. He can do somersaults. Flying knees... Other than that he is pretty slow until he EXPLODES! He seems to have real KO power.

    Paulo can do some pretty high spinning kicks like the one he missed against Hall.. He is flexiable in all but he mostly just walks you down.. He is LIGHTENING FAST inside. He does HEAVY ASS COMBOS on people. Especially against the fence. Body head body head head body. He also has heavy body kicks.

    Itll be a good arse fight matey.

    Costa is gonna put that pressure on Romero and he is either gonna knock him out or get countered badly and get knocked out. No way this fight goes to distance.

    Story has it that Paulo would be at least 7’0” tall but he had his shins blown off in the favela and had to sew his feet to his knees.

    UFC pressured Yoel to take this fight. Dangerous up and comer, who if he defeats he gets nowhere as other fighters will claim he won vs 8# ranked so he doesn't deserve a title.
    But..
    Paulo is overrated. He doesn't KO people unconscious, all his ufc wins were tkos not ko. Good luck trying to TKO Yoel in a 3 rounder. Yoel gets your timing quick and drops you on your butt and you stop trying to push your creatine swelled body forward, letting Yoel recover for the next time Paulo tries to him.

    I'm psyched for it. A big step up for Costa, but I think he can do it because Yoel likes to take time off during fights and Costa can seemingly throw bombs all day. Plus Romero's new style seems to be just covering his head and Costa is great with body shots.

    Either Costa melts Romero with body shots against the cage, or Romero pops back and ko's him while he's unloading.

    I think Romero lulls Costa into a horrible mistake and knocks Costa out with one of those “Where the fuck did that come from?!” type of moments.

    I think Romero will turtle up and tank some shots and Costa is going to get too loose and Romero will finish it with a big counter.

    Yoel ain’t nothing to fuck with...

    I have a feeling he’s gonna implement his wrestling more in this fight and tire Costa out with constant takedowns/takedown attempts and then go for the surprise finish once he’s tired.

    Costa must have some serious ancestors to be that genetically gifted. He looks and fights like he is Superman.

    Costas defense is shit. I expect Romero to knock him the fuck out.

    The UFC announced it but Yoel is still recovering from orbital surgery.

    Tbh Yoel has a pretty long torso and short limbs as well... he has a 73inch reach. Not a freakish long reach. Only an Inch longer reach than Paulo. And hes one inch shorter than paulo.. You can also see Yoels torso is pretty longish and his bellybutton is not all the way up to his nipples like some people

    That punch to the back of the head was cheap as fuck... Maybe the new Vitor Belfort... Would be happy if Romero blow his head, this guy is a turd.

    Yoel doesnt have the longest limbs but they arent short relative to his torso. His muscularity can deceive you into thinking his arms are shorter than they are. You can get a better sense of it when he is cutting weight.

    From a bodybuilder's perspective, he has perfect skeletal proportions.

    Well your right.. At 6feet, 73inch reach isnt small nor long. I have the same exact stats.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    But you can see here. He has a pretty longish torso same as Paulo and I..

    I mean For fuck sakes. Look at the stats. Paulo has an inch less Reach than him. They both have roughly the same reach. Also both about the same height

    I dont trust "reach" as a measure of arm proportions because the width of the back effects the wingspan so much. This is why Holloway has a midget reach despite having normal arms. But you're right- Yoel's torso is on the longer side.

    Hold on.. Wouldnt it work the other way around... Holloway has a midget reach but normal arms? you mean they Look normal due to his tiny ass shoulder and back wideth but if measured next to a normal person he'd be tiny...

    Also great point!!! Yes shoulder width deff effects it.. Yoel has wide shoulders though as does Paulo so I dont see the point.. Lol
