Review: 2014-04-19, some good exchanges between Brad Tavares and Yoel Romero but it is not enough to get three stars. Brad Tavares entered this fight with a mma record of 12-1-0 (50% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.17 middleweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat when he faced Aaron Simpson in 2011, since then he has collected five consecutive wins (all via decision).
His opponent, Yoel Romero Palacio, has a record of 7-1-0 (100% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won via submission) and he entered as the No.20 in the same weight class, he is a former Olympic wrestler representing Cuba (he won the silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic games -85kg) and he suffered his only loss in 2011 facing Rafael Cavalcante; after that bout he has fought and won three times. Tavares vs Romero is on the undercard of Fabricio Werdum vs Travis Browne – UFC on Fox 11. Watch the video and rate this fight!
