Romero easily. If Bisping can do it, Yoel can do it in his sleep.
Southpaw vs southpaw is usually ugly since neither guy can use his prefered attacks and ranges. In that case I will go with Romero because I think he is more ambidextrous and thrives in wild collisions. Luke seems to rely heavily on standard southpaw techniques - left power kick and retreat with a check hook which will not be available to him here. He also retreats on a straight line with his hands down.
His saving grace would be his crushing top game which comes off of the AKA style fence wrestling with double underhooks. I just don't see anyone getting and holding down Romero like that unless he is gassed.
Also Luke now training with Henri Hooft who honestly hasn't delivered very good results in the corner in big fights. His fighters almost always seem to fall apart on a gameplan level; Rumble, Rashad, Michael Johnson, Oezdemir and even Reem when he was there.
