Kingsbury vs. Romero Wiki Update Wiki

In a preliminary card bout that was originally unaired but then replayed on Spike TV, Kyle Kingsbury took on Ricardo Romero.


To kick things off Kingsbury landed a knee to body in the clinch, then another, and a left hook knocked down Romero. Romero turned to his side, rocked by the knees and the punch, letting Kingsbury swarm with a pair of punches, handing Kingsbury the impressive and quick TKO victory.


Talking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Kingsbury commented, "Thanks Joe, it's nice to finally get to talk to you… Honestly it was about keeping my distance and staying relaxed and composed… I took my time and it worked out fine."
