There are not many MMA stars made quite like Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero. The 43-year-old might be one of the most dangerous men on the planet and his demeanour is more than enough to suggest that.

Romero represented Cuba in the FILA World Wrestling Championships after training in the sport from 1990.

He won multiple titles thanks to his wrestling skills, including a gold medal at the World Championships, and a silver medal in the 2000 Olympics.

However, Romero defected to Germany, despite representing Cuba for several years. He made his MMA debut in 2009 and that was the start of his MMA journey.

There isn’t much known about his family but he has a wife and two daughters while he also has a son in Cuba.

Yoel Romero Net worth and pay outs

Yoel Romero has a net worth of $3million in the year 2021 but that could be significantly more due to a case he won against a company for supplements that led to his suspension by the USADA.

Damages worth $27m were reported to have been discussed, but there is no confirmation of whether Romero got the amount.

One of his biggest pay outs was against Chris Weidman as he made $215,000 for the win. However, that pales in comparison to his next fight as he earned $430,000 in a loss to Robert Whittaker for the UFC title.

Even in a loss to Israel Adesanya, Romero made $380,000, and that was his last fight in the UFC.

Yoel Romero MMA record

Yoel Romero currently has an MMA record of 13 wins and five losses. While the Soldier of God has a great history of competing in wrestling and winning titles, he never won a UFC belt during his time with the promotion.
