UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya doesn’t have his first challenger lined up yet, but a fighter has thrown their name into the hat.

MMA Fighting provided the following transcript for what Romero said in the Instagram video:
“Hey Israel, why you say ‘I see you, boy’? Why you say, ‘I see you soon, boy’? No, no, no. You don’t need to say something like this. Give me the f*cking date. Give me the f*cking date. Tell Dana White the f*cking date. Alright? That’s it.”
Look who wants to return from the dead’s world -- • Oh my goodness, is this man still alive ? After that beating? Unbelievable!Hauhau Look man , that funny skinny clown Will be killed by my hands . It a my promise. I ll do this very soon so stay cool and go back to your forced retirement . • ----. That’s so funny. -------------------- • • • ---- Oh meu Deus, esse cara sobreviveu? Depois daquela surra? Incrível! Hauhaua Escuta , aquele palhaço magricela engraçado será morto por mim, eu prometi isso é farei. Eu vou fazer isso em abril, esta logo ali! Então fica frio aí é volta pra sua aposentadoria forçada.
It would appear that Romero could get the first crack at the new UFC Middleweight Champion, especially since Costa is out of action after getting surgery.
