    I am a big Romero fan, because i like the fact that he's unpredictable, explosive, and so vicious at the same time. He's like a Kratos from God of War, coming down to earth to baptise some dudes. He always seems to find a solution, whether it's from a flying knee or from more questionable antics. He will use every option he has to his advantage.

    For the Costa fight, he chose to rope a dope, waiting for oportunities in Costa's game that did not seem to come. Knowing that the brazilian was going to advance most of the fight, Romero and his team decided not to confront him and to let him tire himself out.

    It worked, as Costa significantly slowed down in the second part of the second round, and in the third round. But did Romero take advantage of it ? Barely... He had this late takedown in the second round and got the edge in the last (not by a far margin though)

    Other than that, he was being out powered most of the fight. He was rolling with Costa's punches but got hit a lot, and gassed early. Costa was never in any kind of danger in this fight, and faded more because he did most of the work than because of Romero's activity.

    To sum up, Romero fought in survival mode, did not find any openings, and i don't understand how so many people scored it as a split decision or (for some) a draw.

    How do you say someone had nothing when he arguably won the fight?

    It was a close fight. Costa was injured and sidelined for 9 months. Romero is fighting for the title.
    I was a bit frustrated Romero couldn't finish this fight too.

    yes but it had more to do with Costa slipping. I'm being harsh here, but then again i love Romero and i don't think he deserved anything more than a big L here

    How ??? what did he do to make it "really close" as all you guys said. I clearly got Costa 1 and 2. And in the third it did not seem that Romero had anything left in him to threaten Costa

    Then if you have some time to lose, you can check a topic i made last month about "romero fighting top guys for 7 years". Or else you think i was preparing this thread for a month

    Nice troll buddy

    Didn't Remero rock him multiple times in that fight?

    I agree Costa definitely won though and Remero's performance was very uncharacteristic, he looked like he was out of gas before the fight even started.

    TS probably changed his AV prior to posting his (troll?) thread in an attempt to legitimize it

    He got injured after the fight though. You can't walk away unscathed after fighting Joel.

    Costa got his head snapped back and sent running to the cage quite a few times. Rewatch the fight. Costa also won the first round just by the grace on dropping Yoel early for a second. All that round he was eating bombs himself.
