Darren Till might have spoken too soon when he called out Yoel Romero for his next fight. The Englishman had taken to his Instagram account to post a picture of “The Soldier Of God,” captioning it, “Leg’s go,” before tagging Romero.
However, a day later, Till took to Instagram yet again to hilariously double guess the callout. He posted a meme that read “When you wake up, and realize you called out Yoel Romero.” Check it out here:
A fight between the pair certainly makes sense. Romero comes off a decision loss to Paulo Costa in what was a middleweight title eliminator. As for Till, he made a successful debut at 185 pounds this past weekend. Till bested Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event of UFC 244 last week.
With the win, Till is one big victory away from a potential title opportunity. Romero has been speculated to be Israel Adesanya’s next challenger for the middleweight strap, but UFC president Dana White has noted he wants the Cuban to get a win before facing Adesanya. If so, a fight with Till would certainly make sense for all parties involved.
What do you make of Darren Till’s reaction to himself calling out Romero next?
