UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is not willing to face Yoel Romero even if be beats Chris Weidman at UFC 205 next Saturday. But that doesn’t go both ways, as Bisping would be willing to give Weidman a title shot if he beats Romero.

"If Yoel beats Chris, I honestly don't think I'll fight Yoel, because he tested positive for steroids," Bisping explained on Friday on SuriusXM Rush. "I read an article recently that said that it takes years for the advantages of taking steroids to get out of your system. Just because you don't test positive anymore doesn't mean you'll lose all the extra muscle and things like that that you were able to achieve. So I think he needs longer, I really do. I don't see why he should be rewarded. If Weidman wins, that's the fight I want. Me and Weidman, for a little while now, I'd say probably the last year, have gone back and forth, back and forth, talking sh*t, and yeah, it's a fight that interests me, 100 percent.”
