Yoel Romero and Daniel Cormier’s war of words continues.
The latest skirmish in this ongoing saga occurred on Friday afternoon, when Romero took another dig at Cormier — and American Kickboxing Academy — on Twitter.
“Hey [Daniel Cormier] what’s my record against [American Kickboxing Academy]?” Yoel Romero said on Twitter. “If you no fight 205 stay heavy and god bless you. I know you know
#iluhju #seeyousoonboi and no forget the #towel 206.2″

“I no understand why I, [a] 41yr old, no can fight with the younger guy that want to retire,” Romero said in a second Tweet, before comparing Cormier to recently retired former middleweight champion Michael Bisping. “First time is [Bisping] (god bless you and your family) now [Daniel Cormier]. Why?
#iluhju no be scared meng.”
These comments were in response to a recent Tweet from Cormier, in which the UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champ explained why he doesn’t think the former middleweight title challenger Yoel Romero deserves a light heavyweight title shot.
Hey @yoelromeroMMA here’s the difference between you and me: You’ve missed weight in your last two fights and I’ve won two belts in my last two fights. You’re also 0-2 in your last two title fights, boi #keepdreaming. And hey, get Malki off your Twitter. It’s embarrassing.

“Hey [Yoel Romero] here’s the difference between you and me: You’ve missed weight in your last two fights and I’ve won two belts in my last two fights,” Cormier said. “You’re also 0-2 in your last two title fights, boi
#keepdreaming. And hey, get Malki off your Twitter. It’s embarrassing.”
These Tweets, of course, were preceded by multiple others from both parties, including one particularly scathing one from Yoel Romero.
