MMA Fighter Anthony Romero (7-0)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth. They are also human and enjoy things just like you and me. 

Anthony “The Genius” Romero is not just one of the best Canadian lightweight contenders fighting, he is one of the best lightweight mixed martial artists. Romero is on a 15 fight winning streak and has looked dominant doing it.

In his last fight, he won via TKO in the first round.


A fight in the UFC is definitely in Romero’s future. He was offered a shot to compete in season two of  “Dana White’s Contender Series”, however, a King of the Cage contract stopped that from happening. Romero has been adamant that he wants to get on the UFC Saskatoon fight card in June. Depending on how long COVID-19 affects the UFC’s potential locations, who know the possibility. One thing for sure is, UFC fans will know Romero’s name by the end of 2020.
