After missing weight in his last two fights, the first of which cost him an interim UFC world title, Yoel Romero is now moving up in weight, and recently called out Daniel Cormier.
For Romero though, not only did he miss weight in his last two fights, he’s coming off a second loss to middleweight champion Robert Whittaker too.
This prompted D.C. to brush off the Olympian’s challenge by stating, “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.”
Now Romero has responded to these remarks, and it’s pretty brutal.
