Adesanya recently reflected on the lowest time in his career, he believed the Romero fight and laid most of the blame on the current him.
The fight was the main event at UFC 248 and resulted in what many analysts and fans consider to be an uninspiring snoozefest.
On the other hand, Romero believes he should not be held accountable for their boring fight. Instead, he mentions Adesanya and the numerous boring fights he’s been involved in lately.
“It left a lot to be desired, but let’s get things straight, He called me [out], right? He’s like, ‘OK, nobody wants to face the beast. I want to face the beast. Not only do I want to face the beast, I want retire him.’ And then I got excited. I was like OK, this is going to be one hell of a fight. Let’s go. You want the beast? You’ll get the beast. So then I go up, I get ready for the fight, I’m ready to stand in the middle of the octagon right there — and I do, I stand up in the middle of the octagon ready to brawl, ready for blood to be shed and for fans to see a true all-out war. Right?Yoel Romero
Yoel Romero was also quick to point out his exciting fights with Paulo Costa and Robert Whittaker and others to prove that he is a regular entertainer as he believes that the blame should be shifted to Adesanya.
