UFC 205 results: Yoel Romero nearly breaks Chris Weidman's head, wins by KO
The middleweight delivered what could be the knockout of the night in New York City
Yoel Romero is a terrifying fighter. The Cuban-born fighter has just one professional loss in MMA and possesses some of the most devastating knockout power in the middleweight division.
Just ask Chris Weidman.
In his hometown debut, Weidman was hoping to bring himself back into title contention. But Romero had other plans. After blocking a quick kick from Weidman at the start of the round, Romero ran at him with a flying knee and boy did it crush Weidman.
Romero jumped on top of Weidman after landing the shot, but the ref quickly stopped it -- and with good reason. Weidman's head was gushing blood after the knee made contact.
Romero now looks to be next in line for a title shot at 185 to challenge Michael Bisping. The Brit had said before he wasn't interested in the bout and flipped Romero off after his win on Saturday.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the negotiations over the next few months.
