    Till called Romero out after beating Kelvin.

    Borrachinha was asking for that fight for the longest time, talking trash and everything just to get it. He got it and won.

    Jack Hermansson called him out after beating Jacaré.

    Why does Dana White, Rogan and a lot of sherdoggers keep saying that?

    All of the sudden Adesanya calls him out and he is this super brave and fearless dude.

    I'm a big Izzy fan, but the mystique around Romero being this ducked dude needs to stop.

    They're not scared of him, they just don't want his shit.

    The guy is good, but he is certainly beatable. Seems like he loses more than he wins lately.:D

    Even if you beat him you end up injured

    Till didn't call out Romero. He said he was drunk and didn't remember and as soon as he found out he called out Romero he took it back :)

    If a guy outside the top 15 calls out someone like Romero, it’s just a reach. They just want the headline and attention for being associated. I think Dana’s referencing guys like Bisping that refused to fight Yoel. And the many top contenders that wouldn’t take the Yoel fight

    Calling someone out and signing to fight them are two entirely different things

    Who else ducked Romero?

    Weidman, Rockhold, Jacare.. all fought him. Even Jack Hermansson was calling out Romero at some point.

    Pretty sure Cannonier would take the fight instantly.


    Let alone Bisping... nobody else ducked Romero.

    It's because of Bisping's epic ducking of every legitimate title contender.

    They don’t want to fight someone coming off a loss and has issues making weight.

    Costa kept calling him out, and look what happened. Costa had a very close fight where he got beat up the second half of the fight, but after the fight he got two surgeries done due the damage he took. Yoel took him out lol.

    He definitely beat Bobby though, that was just shit judging. And the Costa fight was a coin toss decision.

    Yeah, Adesanya obviously fancies the fight, a sloppy striker who rarely wrestles, ideal. This narrative that Adesanya made a hero call is funny.
