Yoel Romero is not of this world. Grown men nearing two hundred pounds are not meant to be this quick or this powerful. Romero is less than six months from his 40th birthday and at UFC 205 he may have just had the biggest win of his seven year pro MMA career.
Moments after Romero jumping kneed Chris Weidman’s temple outside the city limits, the Cuban wrestler had two of his best post-fight snapshots ever. But which one was better?
Was it this?

After the referee pulled Yoel Romero off Weidman’s body, he scaled the cage walls and proceeded to march around the Octagon while he saluted the crowd. This wasn’t any march; this was a Romero Solider of God synchronized walk celebration.
Then Romero grabbed the mic from Joe Rogan in his post-fight interview, found UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping in Madison Square Garden and called out him. Bisping looked like he was caught off guard and then gave a look of horror/surprise when Romero called him boy.
That Yoel YOLO life in full effect.
