Yoel Romero had a few things to say after the UFC took his middleweight title shot away from him and gave it to Georges St-Pierre.

Yoel Romero is probably a frustrated man today. The top UFC middleweight is the consensus top challenger for the 185-pound belt currently held by Michael Bisping. But despite a good build between the two that included Romero calling into Bisping’s radio show and starting a GoFundMe for him, along with Romero’s manager Malki Kawa and “The Count” going at it, the bout was not made.

Instead, Bisping will defend his title against the returning Georges St-Pierre.

After the fight was announced, Romero’s management team issued a statement to Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting:

A few hours later, as promised, Romero took to Twitter to offer his own unique perspective on things:

I feel like there was a Tweet left out there, but that’s all that was posted. Regardless, Romero feels that he will get his shot one day, and UFC president Dana White confirmed that Romero is next when announcing the bout.

That probably isn’t making him feel any better right now though.

No date for Bisping vs. St-Pierre was announced, but White confirmed that the bout will take place in Las Vegas.
