Can we just give Yoel Romero the Takedown of the Year award?

Alright, so what do we know about Yoel Romero other than the guy just scored the takedown of the year just a few days ago? The guy competed in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and managed to grab a silver medal for Cuba in the 85kg Men’s Freestyle Wrestling. He made his MMA debut in Germany last year and pulled off a TKO in just 48 seconds. He also pulled off this unreal takedown in his second MMA bout at IFF – Infinite Fighting Federation in Dąbrowa Górnicza, Poland. Yes, he grabbed the guy by his ankle and flipped him on his back, something that I’ve never seen performed in any MMA bout. Yoel went on to defeat Michał Fijałka in the third round via TKO. Innovation, got to love it. [Source]
