    Romero has never fought at LHW. We know nothing about him at that class. Woudn't say DC is ducking Romero but there's no question Brock is a much easier fight. He's also much more lucrative. DC goes after the smart option, even if it's not exactly the most honorable.

    Or as we saw in his last fight, especially if it's not honorable.

    What was Sonnen’s LHW record when he fought Jones?

    When was Vitor’s last LHW win when he fought Jones for the strap?

    Or Frankie’s FW record the first time he fought Aldo?

    I agree with you, but they seem to want to keep certain names in the spotlight.

    That's a great fight. Not surprised DC is dick tucking. I'm sure it's just he doesn't feel like Romero has 'earned' it. After all, it's not like he's calling out retired fighters who haven't won in years or calling for washed up guys whose primes were in 2005 to jump the line at 205.

    1-1 from my knowledge. He k.o.'d Luke and lost to Bobby Knuckles. But they were MW during the fight, so there's that.

    Yoel absolutely does not deserve to challenge for the title right now. This jumping up weights for a title shot deal needs to slow down a bit. At least when a fighter drops a class they can make the argument that they would do better because of the size advantage they'd gain, but moving up should in theory be more difficult and requires more proof before going for the title if you're not a belt holder already.
