But ‘The Soldier of God’ Romero is currently being punished for what happened after the fight.  After defeating Weidman, Romero  hopped up and over the octagon.  Why?  He was excited.  He just knocked out the former champion of the world and was being lined up for a title shot.

Per New York State Department spokesperson Laz Benitez, Romero will be suspended 60 days by the NYSAC. Exiting the fighting area before the bout is officially over is prohibited by the New York commission. Romero will be eligible to return to action Jan. 12, 2017.
