Prediction: Mike Breeden via KO/TKO

Romero is an undefeated striking specialist and has been on the UFC’s radar for awhile now. They wanted to get him on the Contender Series last year but were unable to do so due to his contractual obligations with King of the Cage. The 23-year old prospect is now primed to enter the next phase of his career but he’ll need to get past Mike Breeden in order to do so.

Breeden trains at Glory MMA with James Krause so don’t expect him to be at all intimidated. He’s got 7 KO/TKO’s out of his 8 wins, including an impressive flying knee KO in his last fight. 3 of his last 6 fights have actually been up at welterweight, including his only 2 losses. Romero has an impressive record but most of his opponents are unproven with only a few fights to their name, and over half of his wins have come via decision. On the other hand, Breeden has 7 KO/TKO’s on his resume and he just earned a 3rd round TKO over a 5-2 welterweight. Look for Breeden to have a distinct power advantage and take him to get it done.
