    Reversed Olympic wrestler Yoel's takedowns.

    Gave 0 f*cks about Romero's power and immediately started pressuring him with body and face work.



    Noone in this division is stopping this dude.

    He will be champ.

    If he does get it he won't be champ for very long. He's way too hittable and relies on his power too much.

    Got caught flush with Romero's best, and smiled. Reversed Yoels takedowns, and Yoel is the wrestler.

    If Romero can't sleep him, noone can.

    He’d get flatlined if the fight went 10 more mins.

    Doubtful. He's very limited and his only real weapon is pressure and a good chin. Anyone with good wrestling beats him easily.

    And has a round and a half of cardio. If he doesnt finish in first or second round i wouldnt want to see how he would look in the fifth.

    What was incredibly impressive was that he is the FIRST man to ever OUTGUN ROMERO. He took all of Romero's shots without wobbling, and managed to CRACK Romero's IRON CUBAN CHIN, dropping him clean.

    That stickman is NO MATCH for BROzilian Costa.

    Can’t hurt him, can’t handle that pressure OR power.

    He (Costa) didn't get dropped actually if you saw the replay he moved back to dodge the punch and was hit on the shoulder and fell backward.

    Are you motherfuckers high?

    He loses that fight badly if it's a five rounder.

    It looked like it live (I thought so too), but on the slow-mo replay after Round 1 you see that he was backing up and slipped when he dodged Romero's punch

    He reversed Yoel's takedowns. Yoel is an Olympic caliber wrestler...

    He couldn't finish Romero and gassed hard.

    If he can't finish his opponent in 2 rounds he is in serious trouble over a 5 round fight.
