UFC Yoel Romero

Yoel Romero (pictured) entered the UFC in 2011 looking to bounce back from the only loss of his professional career. Romero has done so in devastating fashion.

Romero collected his sixth consecutive victory by bashing Lyoto Machida’s face in with a barrage of elbows. Machida was knocked out cold at the 1:38 mark in the third round.

Romero caused an even bigger stir during his post-fight speech, where it appeared to most that he blasted America for legalizing same-sex marriages on Friday. His accent is very thick, so there’s some room for debate, but it seemed pretty obvious to this guy.

“What happened to you, USA? What happened to you? What’s going on? … Go for Jesus, not for gay Jesus, people!” Romero apparently stated.

UFC Fight Night 70 took place inside Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida.
