VIDEO | Yoel Romero is absolutely hyped about his octagon return
UFC President Dana White is no longer willing to wait for former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre. The brash UFC boss recently stated that the promotion has “moved on” from a proposed “super-fight” between GSP and current middleweight champion Michael Bisping, this after the Canadian announced that he would not be ready to fight until November.
With that said, both “Rush” and “The Count” claim that they have not heard anything official from the promotion about their proposed “money fight” being cancelled.
Still, Dana White has already moved forward suggesting that if Michael Bisping isn’t ready or healthy enough to defend his middleweight title this summer, that the promotion will then seek an interim title fight between top division contenders Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker.
Number one middleweight contender Yoel Romero seems to agree with Dana White’s assessment of the situation and has already “turned the page” on Michael Bisping.

Yoel Romero was last seen in action at November’s UFC 205 event in New York where he scored a flying knee knockout victory over former division title holder Chris Weidman.
“The Soldier of God” has gone a perfect 8-0 under the UFC banner, scoring notable wins over Ronaldo Souza, Lyoto Machida, Tim Kennedy and Derek Brunson in that time.
The 40-year-old, Romero, was recently visited by FOX Sports and seems more than ready for his next octagon appearance.
We need a cup of whatever @YoelRomeroMMA drinks before training.
