There is no arguing that Yoel Romero made a significant impression with his knockout triumph over Chris Weidman at UFC 205 in New York City.
The powerful Cuban fighter has gathered a perfect 8-0 record within the Octagon and appears poised to challenge champion Michael Bisping for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight belt rights in 2017.
However, Romero’s actions come at a cost. Like his unwillingness to move away from of his stool before the third round of his fight with Tim Kennedy at UFC 178, “Soldier of God” performed more mid-fight antics at UFC 205, wittingly dumping water all over his body between rounds. UFC color commentator and ex- middleweight contender Brian Stann was not too pleased with Romero’s shadiness; he said the following during a recent appearance on Sirius XM.
Stann claims that Romero will do anything, bending the rules, anything possible and that in his opinion, he should to be stopped. He charged the commissions to see, and look back on the film in an effort to put the act to a halt.
