“Soldier of God” Yoel Romero has to no one’s surprise opened as a -360 betting favorite in the rumored July bout with UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Sportsbook courtesy of Best Fight Odds has Bisping as a relatively mild +260 underdog. “The Count” is often underestimated and exceeds expectations when he angrily finds out seemingly feeding on doubt at his super powers. Just ask former champion Luke Rockhold who got knocked out in their rematch. Still, with the championship in hand, Bisping doesn’t get the respect he deserves.
In this bout the tagline will probably read – My heart says Bisping, but my mind says Romero.
