NEW YORK — Yoel Romero finished off hometown hero Chris Weidman on Saturday night, then set his sights on UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
But, boy, was Bisping ready.
UFC president Dana White vowed earlier in the week that the Romero-Weidman winner would face Bisping for the belt. So Romero looked to the Madison Square Garden rafters, where Bisping was working on a TV broadcast, and issued his challenge for the championship after his third-round TKO of Weidman.
Bisping quickly made clear his feelings to Romero — and it wasn’t for young eyes.
Not pictured was Bisping motioning as if he was injecting himself with a syringe — a very clear reference to the six-month drug suspension that Romero just finished serving.
Can these two just jump in the octagon right now?
