The middleweight division that seemed so chaotic just a short time ago seems shaking itself out. With Michael Bisping vs Georges St-Pierre no longer a hot topic for Dana White and Robert Whittaker now the interim middleweight champion, it seems pretty clear who Bisping will fight next.

Now, a couple of the contenders may be figuring things out for themselves as former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold and Yoel Romero, who just lost to Whittaker in the interim title fight by unanimous decision, were going after each other on Twitter.

Michael Bisping Luke Rockhold

Romero: So @LukeRockhold didn’t want to fight me ‍♂️ @bisping you’re up #seeyousoonboyyyyy

Rockhold: @yoelromeromma you’re the pussy that didn’t wanna fight 5 rounds. September 16th was offered.

Romero: Remember when you were champion and you said no to fight me? That was 5 rounds. Remember the last time you took the easy fight? #ynuevo

Rockhold: remember last week when you said you were too hurt to fight sept 16th

Romero: 20 days too much to wait for the guy who needed 14 months to recover from pillow hand @bisping ?? #sorrynotsorry #mrlovato

Rockhold: remember your last fight where u broke the lowest PPV record and didn’t make a dime. I took the money fight which was Weidman

Romero: I am FIGHTER. I am no promoter. You? Maybe model, maybe actor, maybe husband. You and @bisping same guy same eyes. Go back to hiding

Rockhold: what you are is a cheater
