Video: Watch Cuban mob rally around Yoel Romero, trample British flag

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Yoel Romero is dressed like Lou Bega for his rendition of Psycho No. 5, because a little bit of Bisping is all he needs (along with a little bit of Thorazine).

And here you thought “The Count” was quacky.

Romero, who recently lost a five-round decision to fellow top contender Robert Whittaker, is perhaps confused as to how rankings work in mixed martial arts (MMA), but considering his temperament, I’m not going to be the one to tell him you get a title shot when you win, not when you lose.

Okay maybe you do, but just play along.

Despite his recent loss, Romero is still calling for a crack at the 185-pound crown and will attempt to provoke the Brit — who did some flag desecrating of his own — by trampling the sacred cloth in his native Cuba.

“Soldier of God” won’t be getting a title shot with this wacky video, but he’ll certainly get a few more Instagram followers.
