UFC 221: Yoel Romero’s Leg Not Broken as Feared
By FCF Staff
Yoel Romero’s leg was clearly in considerable pain, after he knocked out Luke Rockhold at UFC 221, but the fighter’s manager is reporting the middleweight’s leg is not broken.
Romero required assistance to walk out of the Octagon following the card’s main event, and in a post fight interview, he relayed he thought his leg was broken. But, since then, Romero’s manager Ibrahim Kawa reported the following:
With @YoelRomeroMMA in the hospital. Leg is fine people couple weeks and he will be good to go

Romero dropped Rockhold with an overhand left in round three, and then finished the former champ with a booming uppercut.
