Yoel Romero Calls Out Israel Adesanya, Gets Into Social Media Battle

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

That challenge came from Yoel Romero, who had the following exchange with Adesanya and Paulo Costa through social media:

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.”

 

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.
