Main Card

Israel Adesanya

Israel Adesanya carries the nickname “The Last Stylebender” and this 30-year-old fighter hails from Lagos, Nigeria. He stands at six-foot-four and this middleweight fighter stables out from City Kickboxing. Adesanya is an undefeated fighter carrying an 18-0 record. This fighter took the UFC by storm when he debuted back on February 10, 2018. That same year, he took down Rob Wilkinson, Marvin Vettori, Brad Tavares and Derek Brunson.

He started to make heads turn as he took former UFC champion, Anderson Silva, to the limit and won by unanimous decision to kick-off 2019. He then defeated Kevin Gastelum to earn a title fight against Robert Whitaker which he knocked down in the second round to cap off his 2019. This is his first title defense and the era of Adesanya’s title reign is just about to begin. Expect him to go to his hands and take this game standing up against Romero.

Yoel Romero

Yoel Romero is a UFC veteran and carries the ring nickname of “Soldier of God”. He is a 42-year-old Middleweight fighter and came from Miami, Florida, USA. Romero stands at 5-foot-10 and stables at American Top Team. The veteran fighter owns a 13-4 record and he comes into this fight from back-to-back losses against Rocber Whitaker and Paulo Henrique Costa.

Romero has been fighting in the UFC since April 2013 and he was lethal during his prime as he was undefeated in eight matches before falling to Robert Whitaker for the first time in July 2017. He earned another title shot by beating Luke Rockhold only to fall again to Whitaker. His only fight in 2019 was a loss and it seems that Romero’s age is chasing up to him. Like his opponent, Romero likes to fight standing up and he would go to his hands and kicks to try and earn a nearly KO over his opponent.
