FORMER UFC STAR YOEL ROMERO CLAIMS JAKE PAUL CANCELED FIGHT TO BOX “EASIER” BEN ASKREN

WHAT HAPPENED?

Former UFC star Yoel Romero claims he was in line to fight Jake Paul instead of Ben Askren.

However the YouTuber’s camp canceled the fight when he showed interest in making it happen.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, the ‘Solider of God’ spoke about what supposedly went down.

What happened was, initially, Jake Paul wanted to do a fight with Yoel but then when Yoel wanted to do it, the Paul team canceled the fight.

Romero added that he believes the Paul brothers don’t want to face “real” fighters.

They’re finding the easy fights, even though Logan fought Mayweather, but the thing is, there’s a huge weight difference (between them).

At this point, a fight between Jake and the 44-year-old is unlikely to materialize.
