Yoel Romero out of fight against Anthony Johnson at Bellator 258

Next weekend’s Bellator 258 co-main event has taken a hit as Yoel Romero has been forced to pull out of the fight. Bellator MMA released a statement late Thursday night that Romero did not pass his pre-fight medical clearance and as a result, the fight against Anthony Johnson will be postponed. While the fight has been postponed, the promotion added that they will be confirmed and announce an alternate opponent to face Johnson in the final fight of the Grand Prix opening round.

Do you want to see this fight rescheduled?


This was a fight I was looking forward to most for all upcoming fights.

Kinda wish Gegard Mousasi would step up and step in for a replacement as there arent really many exciting LHW’s out there.

How about Rumble vs Manhoef?
