Yoel Romero Height

People have some sort of sick fascination with Yoel Romero’s physique, and we can’t really blame them because we too are guilty of this [oh, we almost forgot to add the mandatory NO HOMO tag].

Yoel came late into MMA, yet he soon became the most fearsome fighter in the UFC. Though they won’t admit it, even the most dangerous men in the world were and are still afraid of facing Yoel Romero in the octagon, only Darren Till was brave enough to admit this though (of being terrified to face Yoel).

As Joe Rogan rightly said, Yoel is blessed with some ‘crazy Cuban’ genetics. Even the doctor who examined Yoel, later said that he had never seen anything like that before, such tendon, ligament size before.

Though Yoel has never won the championship he is still here at age 43 and putting beatings on much much younger men than him.

About Yoel Romero’s Height

To tell you the truth, nobody is sure exactly how tall Yoel Romero is, not even the UFC (though they have tried).

Yoel’s Olympic stats tell one story and the UFC another? The Olympic stats list him at a mere 5’9” (175 cm), while UFC puts on a rather impressive 6 feet of height (184 cm), who to believe? Well, believe us.

We took the matter into our own hands. We compared Yoel to famous MMA personalities, like Joe Rogan, Dana White, Conor Mcgregor, Daniel Cormier, Robert Whittaker, and many more, and it looks like Yoel is really somewhere between his Olympic stats and the tale of the tape.

The real height of Yoel Romero is 5’9.5” (176 cm)
