Manhoef, who is known for his brutal knockout victories, which includes victories over MMA greats, such as Kasushi Sakuraba, Mark Hunt and many more was subjected to a taste of his own recipe by Romero, who at 45 seemed to have gone over the worst part of his professional career. An experience that saw him endure four fights without a win and even led to his dismissal from the UFC.

Manheof at 46 was looking for a win in his last fight on his Bellator’s contract and Yoel Romero at 45, was looking for his second consecutive victory. However, Romero was more hungry and with an explosive way finished off the legend.

Romero Vs Manheof Fight Preview

Light Heavyweight Contender Yoel Romero collides with MMA Legend Melvin Manhoef in the Co Main event of Bellator 285 on Friday Night at the A3 Arena In Dublin. The Event will be live on ShowTime.

Manhoef has been in the game for almost 3 decades and has the highest knockouts in the history of the sport. The 46 year old is looking to end his career in a spectacular fashion when he takes on the former UFC Middleweight title challenger Romero.

Romero out rightly lost his debut to Phil Davis but has since moved back to winning was with a stunning TKO over A. Polizzi and will be looking to build on that with a victory against Manhoef on Friday night.

Romero is no where near the Legend Manhoef, who will be looking to win a professional fight in the fourth straight decade this Friday. He didn’t sign with the UFC but has created so much unmatchable memories in the cage, most notably fastest knockout victories over Legendary fighters Kazushi Sakuraba and Mark Hunt in 2008.

Romero is also a knockout artist and falls among the most feared fighter in the Octagon during his middleweight run in the UFC but has won just a fight in his last five fight, his most recent being the only victory if the five and his first since singing with Bellator.

Romero has won 14 fights with 12 knockouts and is still has superior athletic attributes as compared to Manhoef. He goes in the favourite but just like every fight could be subjected to a stunner from the Manhoef, who developed the reputation of knocking out Legends.
