Romero trashes Luke Rockhold for avoiding him, eyes another middleweight rival

Top UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero is having a tough time finding an opponent.

Having recently come up short against reigning champion Robert Whittaker, he was hoping his next fight would be against…

“I don’t understand why [Rockhold] said no,” Romero said on the MMA Hour (h/t MMAMania). “I don’t understand. Maybe he had a strategy in the mind. He say, ‘No I wont fight Yoel, I will fight somebody easy.’ Respect to David Branch, but that’s the way he thinks, you know? That’s Luke’s mentality, ‘I want a more easy fight, win and Yoel Romero lose his last fight.”
