Yoel Romero says he has a broken leg following UFC 221 win over Luke Rockhold!

Yoel Romero added another highlight reel victory to his resume tonight in Perth, scoring a brutal third-round knockout over former middleweight champ Luke Rockhold in the main event of UFC 221.

According to UFC President Dana White, Yoel Romero’s big win over Rockhold puts him next in line to challenge current middleweight kingpin Robert Whittaker.

Whittaker and Romero recently fought at July’s UFC 213 event in Las Vegas, with Whittaker emerging victorious with a close decision win.

Unfortunatley, it sounds like Yoel Romero could be on the shelf for the forseeable future as he revealed to FOX Sports that he believes he suffered a broken leg in the first-round of his main event scrap with Luke Rockhold.
