UFC president Dana White announced last week Yoel Romero would be the next challenger for middleweight champion Michael Bisping due to his knockout win over Chris Weidman at UFC 205 back in November.
Romero usually is mild-mannered and reserved but Bisping brings the shyness out of people. Bisping recently went under knee injury so the “Soldier of God” thought he would help the Englishman out to help offset the cost of the surgery.

“This is Mike, he will be needing money to survive after me and him meet in the octagon approximately May of 2017,” Romero wrote on the GoFundMe page. “He is happy in this picture after defending his title against another fighter and the devastation he went through has caused him to have surgery on his knee where all the visible damage was on his face. This surgery has prevented him from competing in a timely manner. After his fight with me, I am convinced he will need this money to rebuild his life, he has a family and I am deeply concerned for him. Please help any way that you can as all funds will be used for medical expenses and his retirement party. Thank you for your time and #ynuevo.”
If you thought the 185-pound champion would let things be, think again.
@YoelRomeroMMA yap yap yap little doggie. We will fight when I decide, you have no say in this ?. Until then you are my little bitch.
