    Yoel Romero takes to periscope often to chat with fans and give out nugs of information, yesterday during a Periscope session from a Florida airport, a fan asked when his next fight would be and he said that he will he fighting on UFC 193 In Australia. No word as to who his opponent will be though. I'm sure most are hoping for Jacare.

    What do you guys think?

    yeah just read this on the UFC 193 rumored card thread earlier. The Jacare fight is the only fight that would make sense.

    Lawler vs Condit
    Jacare vs Romero


    I'd love to see that!
    Throw in Mark Hunt vs Matt Mitrione as well.

    Jacare vs Romero would be a war.

    I think he can beat jacare. Jacare loves to push around his opponents with his grappling. But Romero isn't easily pushed around. I got Romero by tko.

    Romero vs. CM Punk

    Throw on a promo with Joe Rogan saying "He hurt him!!", Goldie saying "It's all OVER!"

    With the text "Undefeated" on top of CM Punk's flashing images and Rogan mentioning how explosive and athletic Romero is.

    I feel like Romero would win too, Jacare is a great fighter but something about Romero has me believing he can win.

    I think Hunt vs. Mitrione was rumored. As is Bisping/Whittaker.

    Lawler vs. Condit
    Romero vs. Jacare
    Bisping vs. Whittaker
    Hunt vs. Mitrione
    Larkin vs. Masvidal

    Sign me the fuck up.

    Romero/Jacare is one of those fights that needs to happen, but just can't seem to get itself together

    Yoel also said he would only fight in Australia, no for gay New Zealand.

    Not sure he'll be able to take Yoel down. Perhaps in the later rounds if he gasses. Romero hasn't really shown any propensity to look for takedowns in many of his fights; I think he'll be content to stand.

    No, just my suggestion but it's definitely a good fight. I'd love if it came true.
