Conor McGregor was already sitting on top of the mixed martial arts (MMA) world before knocking out Eddie Alvarez in the main event of UFC 205 last weekend (Sat., Nov. 12, 2016) to claim the lightweight title; becoming the only man to hold two division titles simultaneously.
In the war of pre-fight banter, Yoel Romero just went nuclear.
Sometimes all it takes for a fighter to become inspired is the right foil. For Anderson Silva it was Chael Sonnen, for Ronda Rousey it was Miesha Tate, for Conor McGregor it’s been just about everyone. And now it seems that Michael Bisping has sparked inspiration in Yoel Romero. The former Olympic silver medalist is tentatively scheduled to be the next title challenger for Bisping’s UFC middleweight title, following his November win over former champ Chris Weidman.
