After failing to defeat Robert Whittaker in two separate title fights, two time middleweight title challenger is moving up to light-heavyweight.
He also missed weight for his last two fights as well…
After this weekend’s UFC 226 event, Romero called out newly minted champ champ Daniel Cormier.
@dc_mma Congratulation to you for Saturday. I want to #seeyousoonboi give the people what they want to see Me and #iluhju 205 in New York
— Peoples Champ (@YoelRomeroMMA) July 11, 2018
Here’s D.C.’s response: (Via UFC Tonight)
“Here’s the deal: I never wrestled Yoel Romero, but in wrestling he probably would have served me up. He’s one of the great wrestlers of all-time. But, you don’t fail a class and then get moved up a grade to the next one.”
“Chael Sonnen did that one time, but I don’t know what was going on. Chael has a way of doing that. Let’s just say that.”
“I don’t want them to take one of these belts. So I will defend it. I will defend the light heavyweight title if the right fight presents itself.”
