Yoel Romero: BELLATOR Light Heavyweight:
“Fans are going to be able to see my growth within mixed martial arts and that I’m always in great physical form. The experience that I’ve had so far with Bellator has been nothing but fantastic and I’m looking forward to taking part in this upcoming match.”
“I feel good because I didn’t have to drop weight. I just kept my own weight. I just switched divisions and kept my own weight. And I’ve always trained with heavyweights and light heavyweights within my training camp. I’m completely adapted to the heavier weights.”
“I’m so excited because I’m doing the one thing that I love so much and to do it for this company BELLATOR is even more exciting.”
