On Saturday night at UFC 213, Yoel Romero will get his first shot at UFC gold when he faces Robert Whittaker for the promotion’s interim middleweight title.
The 40 year-old Cuban has arrived to this point by compiling a spotless 8-0 record since joining the UFC in 2013, following the dissolution of the Strikeforce promotion. Along the way, Romero has scored six finishes, all in utterly savage and ruthless fashion.
In order to further hype Romero’s bout with Whittaker, the UFC’s Brazilian YouTube channel has released footage of each one of those finishes in a single stunningly violent compilation. The video features two flying knees and a couple of truly barbaric ground n’ pound finishes from the Olympic freestyle wrestling silver medalist.
