Daniel Cormier Responds To Yoel Romero’s Callout For The 205 Strap

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

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.”
