Yoel Romero Wants Michael Bisping To Pay For Disrespecting Cuban Flag


Yoel Romero and UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping have been involved in a bitter feud for quite a long time now.

The Cuban fighter knows that the feud will not end until the British champion pays for disrespecting the Cuban flag.

“Yeah, because I want to return to training because I hear that Whittaker is injured and I want to know what’s going to happen,” Romero explained on The MMA Hour. “I want to fight Bisping whether it’s for a belt or no belt because he doesn’t respect my country, my flag. Someone needs to close his mouth because he talks a lot and I never got payback. He needs to pay because this is not good. A fight is a fight, but you can’t talk shit about the country, about family because that’s a serious, serious thing.”

Bisping turned up the heat in the rivalry when he ripped a miniature Cuban flag apart as Romero was fighting Robert Whittaker at UFC 213.

Romero also wants Bisping to know that wherever the middleweight champion goes, then he will not be far behind.

“Everywhere he stays, I go,” Romero said. “When he goes to the press conference for the Jonny ‘Bones’ Jones and Daniel Cormier fight, I go. When he goes to UFC on FOX, I go, too. Wherever he stays, I go. I want to see his face every time. I will be his nightmare.”

Although Romero wants a fight with Bisping, the British fighters next appearance in the Octagon will come against UFC Interim Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker.
