UFC Fight Night 35 adds two more fights (GIFs)

The UFC has been announcing a ton of exciting match ups for their January 15th card in Georgia. This week, the UFC first announced a middleweight battle between Brad Tavares and Lorenz Larkin. Then yesterday they added another three bouts, including Adlan Amagov vs Jason High.

Today, UFC news announced another two fights for the card:

Former Olympic silver medalist, Yoel Romero (6-1, 2-0 UFC), will look to continue his dominance inside the Octagon come January. Romero has looked incredible in his two UFC performances, winning by KO in each bout. Romero made his UFC debut against Clifford Starks back in April, where he landed a vicious flying knee that KO’ed Starks. Here is a GIF of the knee (courtesy of Zombie Prophet):

Romero followed that performance up with another fantastic KO over Ronny Markes back at UFC Fight for the Troops 3. Here is a GIF of the finish (courtesy of Zombie Prophet):

Romero’s opponent, Derek Brunson (11-2, 2-0 UFC), is coming off a nice submission victory at UFC Fight for the Troops 3. After landing a quick head kick on Brian Houston, Brunson attacked and got the rear naked choke in under a minute. Here is a GIF of the finish (courtesy of Zombie Prophet):
