Yoel Romero showed exactly why he deserves a shot at Michael Bisping’s middleweight championship at some point in the future in a vicious knockout of fellow contender Chris Weidman.

Weidman tried to work down Romero with his wrestling techniques and a few well-timed body shots, but the middleweight contender needed just one opening to knock out the former champ with a flying knee.

After the win, Romero pointed to Bisping, who was doing broadcast duties for Fox Sports 1. The champ gave him the double middle finger while mouthing, “F*** you.” He then pretended to inject his buttock, a clear shot at Romero after the top contender was suspended for six months following a failed USADA test due to contaminated supplement.

As of this writing, Romero has not been named the next challenger for Bisping’s belt.
