Yoel Romero is a jacked-to-the-max KO machine. We know this because A) We have eyes and B) We have eyes. His 10 knockouts in 12 victories also speak to this fact. But at 39-years-old and coming off a doping suspension, we are not sure he will be the same hulking sandman as in the past. In addition, former middleweight king Chris Weidman is a far more multi-faceted fighter whose gas tank runs quite a few gallons deeper. He also has redemption on his mind returning from the first loss of his career. Include Weidman -162 in your UFC picks.

 

Chris Weidman vs. Yoel Romero

Middleweight (185 pounds)

 

If you're discerning about which UFC PPV events that you order throughout the year then UFC 205 should be automatic. This matchup between former champ Chris Weidman (13-1, 6 KO's, 3 Subs) and the muscle-bound Olympic wrestling freak known as Yoel Romero is just another reason to shell out the $50 investment because this one will be a dandy. At first blush we have Weidman coming off the first loss of his career, one that cost him his title, versus Yoel Romero (12-1, 10 KO's, 0 Subs) who dispatched one of the most ferocious middleweights in Jacare Souza via split decision.

But Romero is coming off a doping suspension and at 39-years-old may not be able to keep pace with the high-flying Weidman. All I can advise Weidman to do is stay away from those bone-crushing hands of Romero. Weidman has a four-inch height, and almost a five-inch reach, advantage. I will cast my lot with the former champ here as he wins by decision. Chris Weidman -163 at BetOnline is the betting pick here.
