    Romero won that fight. Adesanya did nothing except running away and you know it. He would've gotten killed in there otherwise. Gynobender is a pussy ass point fighter that doesn't deserve to be champ. Romero literally couldn't do anything because Adesanya was running away and refused to fight.

    JUSTICE FOR HOMERO! GIVE HIM DA FOOKIN BOI. NO FOR GAY JESUS!

    Romero just stood there, he lost the fight due to his inactivity whilst Izzy kicked his legs. Poor performance from an overrated challenger
     
  4. Adesanya was defending his belt so he played it safe. Romero needed to put a better pressure. Adesanya should have committed more. Both are to blame.

    Romero did nothing except stand there & expect Israel to engage for him

    Fight was 8 months ago... Both were diabolical.

    I'm all for Yoel, but come on we don't need more reminders of this fight.

    As much of an Izzy hater I am and wanted Yoel to win.

    The burden fell on Yoel to take the fight to Izzy if he wanted to win the fight.

    Cheated his way to the top and blew every big opportunity gifted to him.

    He's no champ.

    Yoel got an undeserved title shot and didn't show up. The challenger has to bring it, and he didn't

    Israel didn't do much but he did more than Yoel.
    I bet on Yoel and thought it was pretty clear he lost the decision.

    Yoel Romero - challenger
    Israel Adesanya - champion

    A challenger should look to take the belt from the champion. Did Yoel do that? No he didn't.

    End of story.

    nobody cares about the belt, there is nothing about a belt in the rulebook. you don't have to "take it from the champ". you just have to beat him according to the rules, which Romero did

    and where did you pull that from, out of your ass? there is nothing about belts in the rulebook, therefore it doesn't matter at all when scoring a fight

    You delusional Romero fanboys can argue all you want, to be the champ you got to beat the champ. It's about mindset. If the champ runs, chase him harder. Your boy wasn't interested in that.

    1,2,5 baby.

    It was very close, and round 5 was 50/50, but I thought Romero took it.
