Yoel Romero fires back at Michael Bisping for ripping the Cuban flag at UFC 213

The rivalry between top middleweight contender Yoel Romero and current UFC champion Michael Bisping has reached a new level.

On Sunday night, Romero took to Instagram to get back at Bisping for ripping his Cuban flag and throwing it at his corner during Romero’s interim title fight with Robert Whittaker in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 213. Romero got back at Bisping’s controversial actions by burning a photo of Bisping with British flag, and sending him the following message in Spanish:

“I’m going to burn you and your flag for disrespecting my flag. I’m your big ticket, boy. I’m going to be your nightmare, brother.”

Below is Romero’s Instagram video burning Bisping’s photo:
