Yoel Romero-Michael Bisping Targeted For UFC 208 This January

It appears that the planned middleweight title fight between champion Michael Bisping and top contender Yoel Romero has a date.

Romero, who recently finished former titleholder Chris Weidman to cement his status in the division, sent out a message on Twitter Tuesday indicating UFC 208 in January as the landing spot for the bout.

Romero, a former silver medalist in wrestling at the Summer Olympics, has won all eight of his Octagon fights. Along with besting Weidman, he’s also defeated Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Lyoto Machida and Tim Kennedy.

Bisping claimed the belt earlier this year with a finish of Luke Rockhold, defending it in England vs. Dan Henderson.

UFC 208 takes place January 21 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. No bouts have been revealed for the lineup.
