    Yoel is hilarious. I'm not hating on the guy but his tactics to get a record breaking 4TH concecutive title fight have me laughing.
    Lol I read his tweets to DC and he even puts seeyousoonboi and iluhju in his tweets. Does He Sherdog?

    So What does everyone think?
    Does Yoel deserve to fight yet again for the title? This time outside of his weight class. Or does He need to beat the number 1 contender?

    I would like to see him get a win at LHW first. Daniel will be gone by then but it doesnt matter. Win first challenge later.

    Daniel should retire his LHW belt and there should be Romero vs a top contender for the championship.

    With the state of things at 205, one good exciting win over a top ten guy could potentially get Romero the shot.

    That's how I see it. Get the win Yoel, then challenge.

    You can't fail the test and move up a grade... - Cormier on Yoel wanting a shot at the belt...

    He needs at least one solid win at 205. He may do well there, but he's not in a position for an immediate title fight.

    Why retire the belt? He will retire the belt after his next defence.

    As long as he doesn't fight Gustafsson/Cormier he will probably do fine

    Romero is 41 and has fought for the title twice now against Whittaker and lost both times. He is in desperation mode and wants another title shot before his age catches up to him.

    He really needs to fight a contender at LHW first though. If he wins, maybe next march when Cormier retires he could have his shot. But that's in the best case scenario.

    In other divisions, yeah, you're right. But we're looking at 205. The division has been completely cleaned out twice (Jones, Cormier) and the third best name is retired (Rumble). Romero deserves a title shot more than anyone but the top contender in that division, and probably more than that guy. And there's gonna be no champion... so Romero vs top contender for the belt?
