Romero is finally getting his long-awaited debut after nine months of signing with Bellator. However, it may not be the perfect debut that the fans were expecting. But, the 44-year-old former UFC fighter is expected to cheer up the fans against the former heavyweight champion Phil Davis.
Though Romero was expected to face Anthony Johnson originally in May 2021 for the Light Heavyweight World Grand Prix quarter final fight. But Yoel had to take him out of the fight after being poked in the eye during the sparring.
Later the Cuban Olympic silver medalist was scheduled to fight Bellator 266 against a more difficult opponent Davis.
Romero enters the fight with a 13-5 record while Davis has 22-6. However, Romero’s ending at UFC was not nice as he lost three consecutive bouts.
But the fans believe that Romero still has the skills to beat an 8-year younger opponent at the Bellator 266.
Phil Davis, on the other hand, lost his most recent fight against Vadim Nemkov at Bellator 257. But still he poses a plenty of threat to Romero.
