Yoel Romero vs Israel Adesanya: how it went down

When you put two of the best athletes in the division against each other, you can expect a war, right? Well, that was not how the fight went down.

Both men spent the majority of the fight contemplating their opponent’s next move. As a result, there was a lack of action in the fight.

Although some people enjoyed the chess match, the majority of the fan base did not.

During the fight, Romero tagged Adesanya with a heavy shot. From that point onwards, Adesanya evaded Romero’s power throughout the fight. However, he picked apart Romero from the outside with his leg kicks and won by a decision.

“I did what I had to do,” Adesanya said during the post-fight interview.

On the other hand, Yoel Romero believes that Adesanya ran from him throughout the fight. The Cuban took to Twitter to troll the champion. He shared a screenshot from a Wikipedia page titled “Fear.”

The page contains a picture of Adesanya backing away from Romero. However, the funniest part was the caption.

It says, “A girl showing signs of fear and anxiety in an uncertain environment.”
