Yoel Romero is a contender in the middleweight division in the UFC. He lost an interim title bout against Robert Whittaker back in UFC 213. Since then Bisping lost to George St Pierre & later GSP vacated the belt. Now Whittaker, the new middleweight champion will face Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.
But Yoel Romero recently stated(or complained depending on how you look at it) that everyone seems to be ducking him and he wants to come to come to the octagon to fight. He needs a challenge.

“I don’t understand why he said no. 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.’”

“For my opinion, he needed a fight with me and the winner fight with Robert. The problem is UFC has a show in Australia and this guy is the champion right now in my division. So he needed somebody and UFC gave it to Luke Rockhold because he win his last fight,” added Romero, who says he is now waiting for someone to just agree to step into the cage with him.

“I am waiting for UFC for a fight. I want to main event Feb. 24 in Orlando. I am waiting for the fight for Luke Rockhold, but I know now he has a fight with Robert. Now I am waiting for somebody. But nobody say ‘Yes, I want to fight Yoel.’ So give me somebody, maybe Michael Bisping,” he said with a laugh, while confirming Kelvin Gastelum also turned down a fight against him.
