Yoel Romero Turns Up The Heat, Cuts Wild Promo On Michael Bisping
The feud between the former Olympian and the current UFC middleweight champion continues to hit new levels, and with Romero's recent Instagram post the bad blood appears to be boiling over. The two elite-level middleweights have been exchanging verbal barbs for the better part of the past year, but the situation reached a different level of intensity at UFC 213 on July 8.
Immediately following Romero's unanimous decision loss to Robert Whittaker for the interim middleweight title, Bisping was shown on camera ripping up a miniature Cuban flag on camera. Romero voiced his anger at the post-fight press conference later that night, but the video he posted on social media cranks up the volume on his outrage.
Romero took it back to the streets of his home country and sent a clear message to the brash-talking Brit at the end of the clip.
With Bisping and Whittaker needing to unify the middleweight titles before the division can move, Romero won't be getting his hands on the champion anytime soon. That said, a recent Twitter post from Romero's friend, teammate and fellow Cuban Jorge Masvidal shows the beef exists outside the Octagon as well.
