Yoel Romero has GoFundMe set for Michael Bisping’s medical expenses
It’s part of the trash talk, and a unique way of doing so, but there is an actual GoFundMe site set up to help pay for medical expenses that may comes as a result of a mixed martial arts contest between UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping and challenger Yoel Romero.

The account was states it was set up by Yoel Romero himself on behalf of Ibrahim Kawa. Kawa of First Round Management represents Romero.
The problem here is that people are actually donating to this GoFundMe, when in fact medical expenses if any will be taken care of by the UFC.
It’s trash talk, in a new form, but what actually happens to the money from those gullible enough to contribute? As of press time, $175 of the $100,000 goal has been raised.
The GoFundMe reads:
“This is Mike, he will be needing money to survive after me and him meet in the octagon approximately May of 2017. He is happy in this picture after defending his title against another fighter and the devastation he went through has caused him to have surgery on his knee where all the visible damage was on his face. This surgery has prevented him from competing in a timely manner. After his fight with me, I am convinced he will need this money to rebuild his life, he has a family and I am deeply concerned for him. Please help any way that you can as all funds will be used for medical expenses and his retirement party. Thank you for your time and #ynuevo
Help spread the word!”
No official date has been set yet for the Bisping-Romero fight however UFC President Dana White states it is the fight that is happening next for the UFC middleweight title.
