Yoel Romero – UFC Middleweight Contender

yoel-romero Record: 9-1 (8 T/KOs, 1 decision) Height: 6-1 Weight: 185 pounds Reach: 75 inches Fighting out of: Coconut Creek, Florida Fighting style: Wrestling Profile: A former Olympic silver medalist in freestyle wrestling for Cuba, Yoel Romero (9-1) has quickly evolved into one of the best middleweight fighters in the world even at 38 years of age. Training at American Top Team, Romero looks better and better every time we see him in the Octagon, and proves the old adage “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” wrong. Since moving to the UFC and dropping to 185lbs, Romero has gone 5-0 with wins over Tim Kennedy, Brad Tavares, Clifford Starks, Derek Brunson and Ronny Markes. He has exceptional wrestling and he has knockout power on the feet, and with a win over Lyoto Machida at UFC Fight Night 70, he could very well get a middleweight title shot before the end of the year is up. Last fight: TKO win over Tim Kennedy at UFC 178 Next opponent: Lyoto Machida at UFC Fight Night 70
