Yoel Romero made his UFC Middleweight debut back in April of 2013 against Clifford Starks. He quickly made a name for himself as he won by TKO within the first round, and earned himself the honours of Knockout of the Night at his very first matchup. Since then, Romero has fought a total of 14 times, won 12 of those matchups – 10 of which he won by TKO, and 2 by decision. Yoel Romero is well known for his controversial history in the UFC, and now he has back to clear his name in hopes of earning himself the UFC Middleweight title.

Up against Yoel Romero is Luke Rockhold. Rockhold also made his UFC debut back in 2013 but has a less victorious start to his UFC career. Within the first round, Vitor Belfort won by KO. While the start of his UFC career proved challenging, it didn’t discourage him. He returned to the Octagon in April of 2014 to fight Tom Boetsch UFC 172 and won the match by submission within the first round. Since then, Rockhold has fought well known UFC fighters such as Chris Weidman, Lyoto Machida, Michael Bisping, and more recently, David Branch, and won. He has proven himself as a formidable opponent in the ring and now aims to be the UFC’s Middleweight Champion.
