The UFC is not playing around, and neither are we when we provide you the best Adesanya vs Romero Prediction on the web. The newly minted middleweight champ wants to stay busy, and Romero is the biggest challenge available, so we have a brawl to feast upon at UFC 248. 18-0 in MMA and enough an electric personality to light a pay-per-view on fire. Israel Adesanya is looking to be one of the biggest stars to ever grace the octagon. Question is if he can fight off a freak athlete of a man like Yoel Romero.
Yoel Romero’s Path to Victory
“Don’t forget ga.. Jesus!.” Romero is not known for his fluent depth of the english language, but he is remembered for his explosivity from a steady state. Think of a greek statue reanimating with a flying knee to poor Chris Weidman’s skull. Sure, Romero’s in the twilight of his career and has taken substantial damage in his wars with Whittaker and Costa, but I wouldn’t count the Soldier of God out yet. Wrestling may just be the key to the puzzle that is Adesanya. Gastelum was able to threaten the takedown and we saw how close of a fight that was. If Yoel keeps heavy forward pressure, while chaining in his olympic grappling, he may be able to zap some of the champ’s energy. From there he can finish with those heavy hooks, as we saw against former champ Luke Rockhold.

Israel Adesanya’s Path to Victory
The undefeated Nigerian has a swiss army knife of striking skills. Coming from Glory kickboxing, it’s no surprise that Adesanya has looked like Anderson Silva 2.0. Expect The Last Style Bender to utilize the same vicious body kicks and high kicks on the outside he landed against Gastelum. The counter 1, 2 is also a big weapon that I expect to soften Romero. And if Romero slows as we’ve seen as of late, watch for the follow up hooks. There is a good chance that the bout goes to the ground as well, which will likely benefit Romero. However Adesanya’s length advantage is a huge factor in the grappling. The longer limbs help to threaten submissions and to get it back to the stand-up.
Adesanya vs Romero Prediction
We will be hearing the voice of Bruce Buffer exclaiming, “And Still UFC champion, Israel Adesanya” – by unanimous decision. I would not be surprised if the champ wins in another spectacular finish. Romero may have been the answer to stopping Adesanya’s title run two years ago, however father time and lady luck look to have passed the Cuban Olympian. The bigger test for Adesanya will be his original opponent for this event, “Borrachinha” Paulo Costa. Hope you enjoyed the breakdown of our Adesanya vs Romero Prediction.
