UFC Fighter Alexander Romanov (13-0)

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

Alexander “King Kong” Romanov is an undefeated heavyweight that has a lot of hype. Deservedly so.

Romanov has 13 wins with 13 finishes; ten of those have ended in the first round. He has seven submission wins and four TKOS.

After going 11-0 on the regional scene, “King Kong” made his long-awaited UFC debut in 2020. His first fight took place at UFC Fight Night: Waterson vs. Hill against Roque Martinez on Sept. 12, 2020. He completely dominated Martinez, eventually finishing him in round two.

In his second UFC fight, Romanov fought Marcos Rogério de Lima at UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Teixeira. He choked de Lima unconscious with his forearm – a choke that he has pulled off three other times.

Romanov returns to action for the first time in 2021, against The Ultimate Fighter season 28 winner Juan Espino at UFC on ESPN: Whittaker vs. Gastelum. A win over Espino could possibly vault him into the top 15 heavyweight rankings.
