I see what you did there
Most people think of Yoel Romero as a humble God fearing man that occasionally likes to knock people the F@#k out. But this recent stunt shows there’s a little more mischief in the middleweight than currently thought, and we think we like it.
In a back and forth that has been going on for months between middleweight champ Michael Bisping and #1 contender Yoel Romero, the “Soldier of God” decided to become quite devilish by upping the stakes in their battle of words. Romero recently started a “GoFundMe” page for the British brawler stating he will need “money to rebuild his life” and fund his “retirement party” after their projected meeting on May 2017.
“This is Mike, he will be needing money to survive after me and him meet in the octagon approximately May of 2017,” Romero’s page states. “He is happy in this picture after defending his title against another fighter and the devastation he went through has caused him to have surgery on his knee where all the visible damage was on his face. This surgery has prevented him from competing in a timely manner. After his fight with me, I am convinced he will need this money to rebuild his life, he has a family and I am deeply concerned for him. Please help any way that you can as all funds will be used for medical expenses and his retirement party. Thank you for your time and #ynuevo.”
Savage. Didn’t know Romero had it in him. To be completely honest, it’s probably not Romero as much as his management team, but either way, it counts. Romero also gets extra marks for using the relevance of Bisping’s current injury in the prank…nice.
If you or any other concerned family or friends would like to donate to putting “The count” back together again, please feel free to donate here. If not, we will send a juiced to the tits (allegedly) Cuban to flying knee you into oblivion. Operators are standing by.
