Yoel Romero is an extremely talented Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) athlete, who is undefeated in the middleweight division and has an extremely bright future ahead of him. We at Like A Boss want to proudly announce our sponsorship of the unbelievably dominant UFC fighter Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero.
Growing Up In Cuba
Yoel Romero Palacio was born in 1977 in Cuba. Raised with five brothers, Yoel knows the value of family very well and is also a religious man, hence the nickname ‘Soldier of God’.
At the age of 12, he started training to compete in freestyle wrestling. He was sent to special training facilities in Cuba, where his natural wrestling talent was developed and he quickly turned into an elite level freestyle wrestler.
In 1999, he became middleweight (84kg / 185lbs) World Champion in freestyle wrestling. In 2000, at the Sydney Olympics, he won silver in freestyle wrestling!
Starting MMA In Germany
After racking up some more accomplishments as a freestyle wrestler, Yoel Romero decided it was time to move on and broaden his horizons. He defected to Germany in 2007 and began training for mixed martial arts. To start his MMA career, he fought in various promotions throughout Germany and Poland, winning all of his fights. He was undefeated.
Entering The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)
In 2013, the ‘Soldier of God’ came to the UFC and began tearing apart the middleweight division. He is the most credentialed wrestler in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, however 3 of his 4 victories have been KOs! Not only is he a brutally efficient wrestler, but he is also a force to be reckoned with when he’s raining blows onto helpless opponents.
So far, Yoel Romero is unmatched and undefeated in the UFC middleweight division with his distinguished wrestling background and the incredible ability to knock people out with flying knees, punches and elbows of doom! We look forward to seeing him continue to dominate the sport of MMA and are extremely proud to have the opportunity to sponsor this great fighter.
When he isn’t busy dominating in the UFC, Yoel likes to spend time with his family, play instruments and read (mainly the Bible, because Jesus Christ is his hero).
Welcome to the Like A Boss family, Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero!
