Yoel Romero Tells Israel Adesanya “Don’t Back Out Now”
By FCF Staff
Following Israel Adesanya’s call for a bout with Yoel Romero, the latter made it clear he’s more than willing to face the middleweight champ. But, now that the fight still hasn’t been signed, Romero’s pushing Adesanya to get the bout finalized.
Recently Adesanya called out Romero, following the news that Paulo Costa has been sidelined due to bicep surgery. A fired up Romero was quick to respond and he called for the fight to get signed. Since then, however, Dana White has said that Romero would likely face someone other than Adesanya next.
Well, more recently, Romero posted the video and comments below (warning: explicit language):
@stylebender you calling me out and now you putting excuses to back out? What happen , you heard I send people to the hospital after my fights? Don’t back out now…#seeyousoonboi #soldierofgod
The 42-year-old Romero (13-4) is coming off a decision loss to Costa in August.
