Yoel Romero Palacio vs Rafael Cavalcante
Am I the only one excited for this match? If you haven't seen Yoel, you need to. He's a bigger, stronger version of Hector Lombard IMO. He won a silver medal in the 2000 olympics for wrestling and his takedowns show it. They are very similar to Karlos Vemola but in addition to this, he has shown some real nice stand up ability in his 4 professional matches so far. It'll be a real nice match to see how Yoel measures up against elite 205 lber's.
In fact, the whole card excites me from top to bottom. Other than this fight, we have the semi final grand prix match ups, the middleweight championship match up, and finally the Lawal vs Gracie fight! Very Excite!
