Since Romero injected his talents into Northern California’s amateur MMA scene at 155 pounds, he’s been hunting landmarks to trace his journey and a nickname to suit his intent with each and every heaving haymaker; Romero achieved both, simultaneously, when he demolished Philip Hattersley for the NCFS Lightweight Title at NCFS 3.
“KO” Kaleio Romero rolls off the tongues of fight fans like a set of waves slapping a tropical island’s shore. Fully aware of the dynamite in his hands but absent of a knockout on his stat’s sheet, Romero kept the nickname: “KO” from view. Under NCFS’s bright lights, there was no hiding Romero’s development in the striking department. He uncorked a vicious combination of right and left hands that flattened Hattersley, earning a new moniker and adding another championship belt to his collection under MMAGOLD’s banner.
