Romero is a monster. Not many guys fights a monster like that when you are a title holder when you don't have to. I mean, not just a title holder. These days, no one seems to fight tough guys, unless you have to, or they are ranked higher than you. Look at Anderson. Tried to be best friends with Jon Jones while calling out smaller man in GSP like a real man, also trying to be BFF with Jacare as well. Ducked Weidman and only had guts to fight him when Weidman was coming off a lay off longer than a year, and promptly proceeded to get knocked out like a clown. Maybe Adesanya isn't as likable as some fighters. But he deserves massive credit for this. I don't think this is a great idea tho. I would have advised Adesanya against taking Romero fight when he didn't have to but oh well. Romero beat Whitakker in the second fight anyway.
