Video: Yoel Romero is drinking rum, smoking cigars, and burning British flags

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender, Yoel Romero, is celebrating last weekend’s loss to Robert Whittaker with a liter of rum and a 10-inch stogie.

Because losing is part of the game and only pussies cry themselves to sleep (or something like that).

Anyway, “Soldier of God” is a little hot under the collar after reigning middleweight titleholder, Michael Bisping, ripped up the Cuban flag and tossed it toward toward the Octagon last Saturday night (July 8, 2017). That’s when Romero was duking it out with Whittaker, who departs “Sin City” as the newly-crowned interim champion.

More on that silliness here.

In response, Romero took Bisping — and the British flag — and lit them both on fire with a mini blowtorch, because Beavis taught us that fire is cool and we should play with it as much as possible.

"I’m burning you and your flag for disrespecting my flag," Romero wrote on Instagram.

I never wish harm on anyone (usually), but part of me hopes Whittaker is injured following his UFC 213 victory and Bisping is forced to fight Romero, just to settle this feud once and for all.
