Yoel Romero was taken to the hospital following his knockout of Luke Rockhold in the UFC 221 main event because of a suspected broken leg.

“I think in the first round I took two kicks and I’m pretty sure it broke my leg,” Romero told Megan Olivi through an interpreter on the UFC 221 post-fight show on FS1.

Fortunately, his manager – Abe Kawa of First Round Management – took to Twitter to say his client was doing better than expected.

malki kawa @malkikawa

Can confirm @YoelRomeroMMA has no breaks in his leg, and is injury free... everything came back ok. Looking forward to Robert Whitaker getting healthy and making that fight in the summer

“I want Romero to win because there’s something about his crazy that I like,” Whittaker said on “The Halfcast Podcast” prior to UFC 221. “He’s such a nice bloke – but seriously crazy. I just like him.”
