The war of words between Michael Bisping and Yoel Romero has just taken to incredible new heights.
Though the current middleweight champion is currently on the mend from knee surgery, the announcement by Dana White last week that he would in fact be defending his belt against Yoel Romero next has seemingly lit a fire under both men, who have stepped up their trash-talking game from simply rude to downright vicious in the past few days.
"The Count" fired the first shot last week when he posted a play-by-play commentary of Romero's apparent attempt to bend the rules once again at UFC 205 (in the fight that would earn him a title shot). The Cuban Olympian then fired back on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, taunting Bisping with a slew of money quotes including "the title doesn't belong to him. It belongs to God. Now, I'm just waiting on God."
But now, Romero is going for the throat.
This morning, "The Soldier of God" pulled a next-level troll move by starting a Gofundme crowd raising page to pay for Bisping's medical bills following their fight.
The Gofundme page, which you should probably donate to (you know, for humor's sake) before it gets taken down again, even included a description so dead-on that I'm not entirely convinced Romero didn't hire a veteran someone to write it.
This is Mike, he will be needing money to survive after me and him meet in the octagon approximately May of 2017. He is happy in this picture after defending his title against another fighter and the devastation he went through has caused him to have surgery on his knee where all the visible damage was on his face. This surgery has prevented him from competing in a timely manner. After his fight with me, I am convinced he will need this money to rebuild his life, he has a family and I am deeply concerned for him. Please help any way that you can as all funds will be used for medical expenses and his retirement party. Thank you for your time and #ynuevo
While the account has only managed to raise a mere $110 for Bisping's "retirement party" thus far, it has earned the donation of at least one person who saw Romero's incredible callout of Bisping at UFC 205.
