UFC Fighter, Israel Adesanya, Retains Middleweight Champion Belt

Esegbe Benedict

Nigerian UFC Fighter, Israel Adesanya, has defeated Romero in UFC 248 bout to retain his middleweight champions belt after a unanimous decision that declared him the winner.

The fight exhausted the duration of the bout (Round 5) with some adrenaline moments in between.

Adesanya after retaining his belt had this to say, “I did what i had to do, I capitalised on his weakness and you can see him (Romero) limping his leg.”

Yoel Romero, however, queried Adesanya's style, saying he didn't come out to fight.

“The crowd paid to see a real fight, but he was just running around, he didn't fight. It would have been different If he came all out.”

With this win, Adesanya is now the fastest fighter to go 8-0 in the UFC surpassing Anderson Silva.
