Yoel. And I just want them to compete damn it. Such a long time between bouts. Barring injuries, do these guys really need to only fight 1-2x a year? Especially Yoel as Father Time is waiting to whoop his ass.

Respect the time between cycles or get caught by USADA

Costa might win due to Yoel getting up there in age. Yoel is a lot more natural than Costa - as an athlete and a human.

Yoel but could go either way honestly.

Yoel.  It's just a 3 rounder.  He will land a big shot on the feet and finish it with GNP.

Yoel can catch him at anytime, but I think Costa puts his foot on the gas and pushes a pace on Yoel. Sometimes Yoel is too relaxed and just waits like he did against Whittaker, especially in the first one. That wouldn't be a smart gameplan in this one. Head says Costa, heart says Yoel. I love Yoel Yesus!

At least we won't walk away from this feeling like a dirty fighter held a competitive advantage over the loser.

Either way we're about to see if Costa is the real deal.

 

Big jump in competition, but IF he can cut off & walk down Romero, like he has everyone else DIS GON BE GOOD

Yoel in three rounds is devastating.  The only issue is his eye looks severluy deformed now, may have some issues we are unaware of, and all fighters that get in their 40's eventually lose it one day.  I can see Costa landing a left hook (GSP on Ping style), but more likely will be beat by a guy that has better wrestling and is more explosive.

Its just a matter of time until usada updates their testing and Costa gets suspended.

I think Yoel wins.  Too much experience vs high level guys although the age thing has me a little concerned.

Fucking monsters, both of them. Reminds me of pre USADA when most fighters were jacked....well maybe not that jacked but definitely not flabby in any way. Miss those days

I like Costa in this one. I think the young lion will take out the old lion. If Costa comes out like the same beast who dismantled Hendricks with ease, I think he can take out Yoel but won't be an easy task either way.

Yep, big fight for Costa and we are going to see how well he does from his back! Be interesting if he even bothers trying to stuff Romeros takedowns or not..

I'm more exciting for this fight than the others

Yoel has more experience, skills and athletic abilities, but Costa has more juice.

 

Costa.

Costa explodes on him and walks him down but yoel can take him down most probably at will. I think yoel will taste some shots and go for a gnp stoppage.

Costa will win I think. Romero is 42 now, and though he's still a very youthful 42 year old - time catches up quickly.

I think costa gets the stoppage win.

I wouldn't have said it awhile ago, bur I've got a feeling a one hitter quttier will get the job done

If you combined both their necks you still wouldn't get a neck.
