Michael Bisping gives Yoel Romero the finger

UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is not a fan of UFC 213 interim middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero. In fact, the champ has publicly stated that he hopes Romero loses decisively to his UFC 213 opponent Robert Whittaker.

“Whittaker, we all know this, he’s on an absolute tear. I’ve got nothing against Robert Whittaker,” Bisping said on a May episode of his podcast. “Fine young man, great fighter, fights hard, got a lot of respect for him. Can’t say the same about Yoel. Yoel is certainly not on my Christmas card list. We all know my thoughts on him. He’s a scumbag, he’s a cheat, and that’s that. So if they do fight I, hope Whittaker beats the brains out of him.”

This of course, is just one of the many anti-Romero comments Bisping has unleashed over the last few months. And he’s not done blasting the UFC 213 fighter yet.

On Wednesday afternoon, the champ took to Instagram with a fairly savage Romero diss, criticizing the Cuban for his outspoken faith in God and once again of accusing him of steroid use.

Romero will enter his UFC 213 scrap with Robert Whittaker on a fantastic, 10-fight streak. This streak is highlighted by defeats of fighters like Derek Brunson Brad Tavares, Tim Kennedy, Lyoto Machida, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, and most recently, Chris Weidman, who he smashed with a third-round knee.

Bisping, meanwhile, is currently on the injury list, as he is recovering from knee surgery. He has not been seen in action since October, when he defended his title with a controversial decision defeat of the retiring Dan Henderson.

What do you think of this latest comment from Michael Bisping? Do you think he fights Yoel Romero later this year?
