Is it possible to have huge muscles and dominate in MMA? The number on ranked UFC middleweight Yoel Romero may have the answer you’re looking for! Mindsmash takes a closer look at the freak athleticism of Romero. His unquestionable explosiveness and ability. Cocooned inside a ripped body of pure lean muscle looking more like a Greek Adonis than an MMA fighter.
How does his body type marry up with his explosive style? Of course, we have the fast-twitch muscle that is more common in athletes of African descent, that’s just the way it is. And Yoel is amongst the very top of elite athletes with no doubting he could apply himself to almost any sport he tried.
But Romero chose the sport of wrestling in which he competed at an Olympic level for Cuba. Before finally making the decision to move across into the sport of mixed martial arts. Since his joining the Ultimate Fighting Championships, he has stormed through the division stopping many of his opponents in a brutal fashion.
