In an obvious tough fight, the steel bender said he had to do what he had to do to win the fight.”

For many, the fight fell below expectation as there was much ‘activity’ to savour.

Adesanya tactically did more of kicking Yeol’s legs in order to weaken his opponent.

Hence, few punches were thrown and all these brought boos from fans who were on the ring in most of the rounds.

People bought the pay-per-view to see a real fight – not this,” Romero said.

“You need to have respect for people. People paid for a pay-per-view, for what? for a fight.” not like running. If you want to see running, go see Usain Bolt.” Yoel Romero said after losing to Israel Adesanya at UFC 248.
