UCF middleweight champion, Israel Mobolaji Adesanya will put his title on the line during his first defence fight against the self acclaimed "Soldier of God", Yoel Romero. The fight is will take place on Saturday, March 7 at the T Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.


The New Zealand/Nigerian - Israel Adesanya had previously fought against Kelvin Gastelum in an exhaustive interim title bout earlier in 2019. He came out victorious in the fight after which he knocked out Robert Whittaker at the UFC 248 on October 2019 to win the middleweight title belt.

Adesanya who styles himself as 'The Last Stylebender' will defend his UFC middleweight world title for the first time on Saturday as UFC 248 beacons. He faces Yoel Romero who hails from Cuba.


The dangerous Cuban, popularly referred to as "The Soldier of God" has vowed not only to beat the "Last Stylebender" but to also defeat him in style via a knockout at the Octagon.

The muscular Cuban reveals that he won't be going too crazy-hard on Adesanya but rather, he would be patient to capitalize on his 'one mistake' at the appropriate time before knocking him out. Below are his words:

I and my team have the plan to knock him out.

Of course I’ve got to finish him I don’t want to go too crazy hard, when he makes the little one mistake, boom.

Meanwhile, the tough 42-year-old Cuban lost his last two fights to Robert Whittaker via split decision and Paulo Costa through an unanimous decision. Recall that Israel Adesanya had already defeated Whittaker via a knockout to become a champion.


The highly technical New Zealand fighter has got his strength in his tenacity and strike accuracy. For this reason, he has a better odds of wining according to the bookmakers. 

Adesanya has never tasted the disappointment of a defeat during his 19 professional fight in the UFC. He has 19 victories and zero draws out of his 19 fights.
