Why isn’t Cannonier fighting Adesanya instead of Romero?

    What the heck? He’s coming off of two big stoppage wins.

    romero is coming off a loss.

    Jared seems like the best candidate.

    Cuz he's a relative no name and izzy has been asking to fight yoel nonstop would be my guess.

    Cannonier still needs to be built up for business purposes. A win over a big name like say Robert Whittaker will get him a shot

    It's the fight Israel wants, claiming he's the opponent fans are doubting he can beat. With Costa out I don't have a problem with it.

    Cause they know Cannonier is a bigger threat to Adesanya than Romero. Why? Brutal Leg kicks from Cannonier! @NorrisB

    I’d be cool with that fight. However Romero is on the back end of his career and has been on the wrong side of some questionable or razor thin decisions against the divisions best.


    Give Romero his shot. Eraser is probably next in line, but CANNONier can always feast on Till after he starches Whittaker.

    Not really a fair answer because they were looking to book Adesanya vs Yoel before Whittaker vs Cannonier was announced

    Oh yes, big threat. Last 3 fights were eye opening for me. I underestimated him I guess.

    Adesanya is very active and does not take breaks, he fights very quick.. so don't worry about it.. Cannoneir will get his chance soon enough, everyone will get a chance if Adesanya is champ, he is the real deal.. wants to fight quick and often unlike basically every champ in UFC

    Cause ufc is retarded. Romero had 3 title fights in a row, coming away with 0 belts, missing weight twice. Now after a loss he gets yet another title shot.

    Might as well call up bj penn and give him a title shot.

    The guy has had 3 Title Shots and missed weight for two of them. The only one he was on weight for he lost a UD.

    I would like to see anyone but Romero get a title shot.

    Because there is still juice left to squeeze with Romero so why not? Cannonier isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
