    Screw instant rematches the Rockhold vs Weidman rematch isn't until June anyways. A rematch NOBODY wants to see and only happened because USADA shat all over everything. When is Gay Jesus getting that belt? Quarter 3 of 2016? IMO Romero throws around Luke and Chris like little boys in the wrestling dept. and is the way harder hitter of both men too. Luke or Chris fighting Romero would look like man vs child. Rockhold and Weidman are sitting ducks with the belt. They both would need to fight Yoel at the same time to even have any chance to win. 2v1 is their best bet. Contaminated substance or not this guy is a freak athlete and wrestling legend! Gay Jesus is waiting...

    If he were to fight Rockhold it would be a better match than say if he fought Weidman.

    I think that, given his age and failed tests, the answer is never.

    For sure. Remember how competitive Weidman vs Machida was? I imagine a very similar ending as Romero vs Machida

    If and when USADA clears him, he'll get his shot. Pray for gay Jesus.

    Romero is a beast, and would wreck both Weidman and Rockhold imo. But I doubt UFC wants him near that belt, another non-English speaking guy who doesn't market himself.

    The way they hand out instant rematches to any American champ who loses, but shaft guys like Aldo is fucken disgusting. I hope their fighters start going to Bellator and Conor fucks them over and opens a rival promotion.

    He's an animal. Shitty turn of events. I was pumped to see him fight for the title even tho his last fight was less dominant. As listed, at his age and the punishments for PEDs being so harsh I agree with never.

    Romero should have gotten a title shot. can't believe rockhold/weidman 2 is happening first.

    An incoherent Bible-thumper with a history of cheating and juicing? I'm sure they can't wait to give him a title shot against their well-spoken, highly-marketable new champion.

    Weidman and Rockhold would beat him. The man barely survived Kennedy. Yoel is a front runner like Johnson. If you take him into deep water, he becomes easier to counter. His gas tank is not great, and hie doesn't have a broad set of skills to help him out of worse positions. The only significant thing he did to Jacare was land the backhand, and imo Jacare definitely won that fight.

    All Weidman and Rockhold would have to do is avoid a couple of hulk bursts. They're more durable than Yoel.

    Also, I'm less interested in guys who may have a shot at securing the title. A lot of guys have the chance on any given day. I'm more interested in seeing someone who has the capability of make a long title run, and not this constant revolving door of one night overachievers like Yoel, and Hendrix.

    1st round Romero is a problem for anybody but I'd favor Rockhold at this point

    If this test is from a tainted supplement I will be so pissed because Romero's days are growing short.
