    All will be rematches with Bobby knuckles after he runs through Paulo Costa.

    Eight fights? Holy crap. He's 41 now, assuming he fights twice a year, he's going to go until he's about 45? Heck of a contract.

    2018: twice with one more at the end possibly
    2017: once
    2016: once
    2015: twice
    2014: 3 times
    2013: twice

    That means unless UFC cuts him, he won't fight anywhere else.
    Doesn't mean he fights 8x more

    but good for him if he got a deal he likes

    It's almost as if Yoel found some magic potion that enhances vitality

    God.

    For fedora tipping atheist brainlets, just change the word 'God' with 'Wisdom' to understand what he is saying.

    I reject your reality and substitute my own
    I’m starting to believe that he isn’t actually human, the man will be slaying still at 94 years of age

    I have no issues with God but that doesnt change the fact that Romero is on PEDs

    Whittaker vs. Romero 3 - 10. He won't be happy until Whittaker's brain is mashed potatoes.

    Imagine if Yoel keeps getting better as he ages.
    His style completely changed after UFC 213, he's much more plodding now, but he seems to be made of metal. Might be looking at the first 50 year old UFC champion.

    It doesn’t mean he has to fight 8 fights. He can retire at anytime. However the UFC would still have his rights, so he couldn’t retire and return to a different promotion unless he fights out that contract. Would definitely like to see him fight atleast 8 more times though if he can.

    why Is that?
    i am a huge yoel fan.
    yoel wont beat dc
    yoel cant beat gus (60 40 in gus's favour)
    jones will come back (jones would win)
    he can beat the rest but jan blahowicz and volkan are no jokes and it would be a tough fight regardless. I think he would be the 4th best at lhw.
