It looked like Yoel Romero was headed to Bare Knuckle Fighting after getting let go by the UFC as Bellator wasn’t interested.
ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reported today that has changed as the promotion has signed him.
Yoel Romero Signs With Bellator After UFC Release
“Yoel Romero is headed to Bellator. Romero has agreed to a new deal with Bellator, sources say. He is expected to sign imminently. He’ll debut for the promotion in 2021 at 205 pounds. His debut date and fight aren’t set yet, sources say. Initially, Bellator officials passed on Romero, however, after further talks last week, and with a new chapter at 205, the two sides were able to come to an agreement very recently.”
