UFC 248 takes place this weekend and the main event sees Israel Adesanya defend his middleweight championship against Yoel Romero.

Undefeated Adesanya (18-0) dethroned Robert Whittaker in the Australian’s back yard in October to cap off a faultless first year and a half in UFC for the Nigerian-born New Zealander. Meanwhile, Romero (13-4) should be past his peak at 42, but the Olympic silver medalist wrestler still moves like – and possesses the physique of – an athlete in their prime.

The Cuban previously came up short in a title fight against Whittaker, and was somewhat fortunate to be granted a shot at Adesanya due to his two-fight losing streak.


Those defeats were both razor-thin decision losses, however, and the ‘Soldier of God’s terrifying knockout power should not be overlooked.
