Things have seem to come a long way for Michael Bisping and his now former bitter rival Yoel Romero. Ahead of Romero’s fight against champion Israel Adesanya, Bisping was a guest on MMA Tonight on Sirius XM and discussed Romero’s upcoming title challenge and admitted, he’s now a fan of his former rival.

“Yoel is a serious threat for anybody, still super explosive, obviously explosive, has the wrestling, has the power, you know, many strong accolades but having said all that I do believe there’s probably a reason he hasn’t become champion yet. Lord knows he’s had enough attempts, and I’m a fan of the guy. I’m a fan of Yoel Romero these days. Now that I’m not a competitor anymore, I enjoy him. I think he’s a great personality and a hell of a fighter, so no animosity from me.”

As he put their feud to rest, Bisping would point out that he believes some of the wars that Romero has been a part of in his previous fights, have had an effect on him.

“He has been in a lot of wars, that war Borrachinha , the two very tough fights with Robert Whittaker, that does take some life span off your fight career. You want to avoid wars at all costs. Of course he’s also 42-years old, so I think all of that is really going to go against his favor. That said, he still does have the power, he still has one-shot capability to turn the lights out.”

Bisping and Romero have had a rivalry that dates back for quite some time. When Bisping was champion, Romero called him out after he defeated Chris Weidman at UFC 205 in a memorable post-fight interview with Joe Rogan.

Now that Michael Bisping is retired and focused on his work as analyst and broadcaster for the UFC, it seems he’s put an end to the feud with Yoel Romero.
