Yoel Romero and UFC are heading out in a different direction following eight years, as per ESPN’s Ariel Helwani.

The long-term middleweight title competitor apparently had three battles staying on his agreement. Romero lost four of his last five sessions going back to 2017, including three shots at the belt with his latest coming against Israel Adesanya in March. In the one battle he won during that stretch—a knockout over Luke Rockhold at UFC 221—Romero was ineligible to guarantee the middleweight title in the wake of missing weight.

“While we didn’t expect Romero’s time in the UFC to end this way, we are thankful for the open doors [UFC president] Dana White, [general counsel] Hunter Campbell and [matchmaker] Mick Maynard gave him throughout the long term,” Romero’s director Malki Kawa told Helwani. “He’s prepared to proceed onward now and resume his vocation, and we are now conversing with different advancements at this very moment.”

It’s hazy where Romero will land straightaway.

Helwani noticed the prepared grappler leaves the organization as perhaps the best warrior in UFC history to always lose a title.

He might have the option to discover a title belt somewhere else, yet couple of advertisers offer the sort of fame Dana White and UFC can make.

At 43 years of age, Romero closes his UFC residency with a record of 9-4 including triumphs against Chris Weidman, Derek Brunson and Tim Kennedy.
