    This man gets it.

    And it's not even like Romero got starched or lost convincingly, he arguably beat the two top young lions in the division and at the very least proved he's every bit as good as they are if not better, and you could easily make the case that he does deserve it.

    So Izzy just slept one of those lions, while the other one is out of action injured (after a war with Yoel not surprisingly).

    So now Israel has a choice to sit out until summer or whenever Costa comes back, or call out the baddest mo fo available.

    He calls out the baddest mo fo available and sets up a dream fight, and now you got a bunch of virgins complaining about it. This place is crazy bro.

    Then set a hard date on Adesanya defending his title in May and if Costa can’t make it THEN throw Romero in there but doing it now is stupid.

    Agreed, if we get a champ that wants to fight 5 times a year, let him. Injured contenders shouldn't dictate the champs schedule. By the end of a career the difference in total fights/defences could be significant.

    If Costa is really ready by April then I don't see the point of Israel vs Romero.

    No it's fucking stupid to make a guy who wants to earn money, defend his belt and make the Ufc money sit out when he wants to fight.

    I'm sure the Vegas fans, ESPN executives and ppv buyers will all be very happy with a shitty card in March with the promise they may, emphasis on may, get a 1% better fight in May.

    There is literally no way any of this makes sense.

    Joanna has defended the belt successfully and unsuccessfully under far worse conditions. She can cry into the pile of money she gets.

    Adesanya will finish Romero in one round no need to take a month or two off.

    I'm down for this card.


    I think if Romero wrestles he beats Izzy who I think like Anderson, isn't super durable.

    Big fan of Yoel but he doesn't deserve this fight regardless of the circumstances.

    Amazing fight. One of the best matchups in WMMA history, IMO.

    I get why Romero, under normal circumstances, doesn't deserve a shot, but he's the best option right now. Who else should get the shot? Till? He's (self-admittingly) not ready. Cannonier? Needs one more win. Whittaker? Does anyone want to see an insta-rematch after how bad he got starched by Stylebender, and with how inactive he's been?

    Romero may be 1 - 3, but not all records are the same. 2 of those losses were razor close fights against the former champ and the next title challenger, and anyone that remotely knows how to judge a fight should've ATLEAST scored the second Whittaker fight a draw. There's no way possible the 5th round wasn't a 10 - 8.

    Romero on paper may not seem like the most deserving, but there's been far FAR least deserving fighters receive title shots in the UFC. And you can't hate on Adesanya for wanting to be an active champion.

    I get why they're doing it but yeah feels undeserved. If Costa wasn't out injured it'd certainly be him in there. So with time available to book before Costa returns I get why they chose Yoel where the decision in the Costa fight really seemed like a coin toss. But yeah his recent history kind of leaves a sour taste.
