Middleweight: Yoel Romero
Middleweight champion Michael Bisping is expected to defend his title against surging contender Yoel Romero this spring, and I simply see this being a difficult fight for “The Count”.
I’m not sure Bisping’s crisp striking, notable toughness and endless cardio will be enough to topple Romero’s Olympic level wrestling and super-human like knockout power, although the champion has surprised us before. “The Solider of God”, however, has won eight straight and he already owns victories over top contenders Chris Weidman and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, although his win over “Jacare” was a bit controversial.
I expect Romero beat Bisping and take over the reigns at 185-pounds.
