Yoel Romero Explains Why He Kissed Luke Rockhold at UFC 221

UFC middleweight contender Yoel Romero had an impressive KO victory over former champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 221.

The KO made the rounds of the media but so did Romero’s after fight antics in which he got a bit too close and kissed Rockhold.

Michael Bisping made a claim that Romero did it in a se%ual manner.


Romero was interviewed by MMA Junkie and was asked why he kissed Rockhold:

“In my country, there’s a code,” Romero told reporters backstage this past Saturday at UFC on FOX 28. “When you lend a hand to another person, you don’t backstab him. Never. If there’s a situation, and you don’t want to be in trouble, just keep away from it.”
