Romero With Intimidating Message, “I will cleanse the division”

It was recently revealed that UFC middleweight contenders Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker will be facing off for the interim title at UFC 213. Now, Romero has decided to come forward with his thoughts on the title shot opportunity.

In a recent interview with FloCombat, Yoel Romero explained that he is happy, but there is work to do.

“I am happy I am fighting for a championship. Everything else is just white noise. I believe Robert is a very talented guy. What’s interesting is that I thought I was going to fight him two fights ago before [Ronaldo] ‘Jacare’ [Souza]. So he was already on my radar since then.”

Continuing his line of thought, Romero said “This is for the fans of the sport and the people that watch. I think being the right hand of God is more of a valid description of me than the Boogey Man. Boogey Man is made to scare kids. I prefer to scare my opponents.

“Greatness is what I am fighting for through God’s plan for me. I will be the very best champion I can be for the people. I will cleanse the division and bring greatness to it not just me.”
