    I ain't buying the hype and think Yoel's gonna murder him. Romero by horrendous brutal career ending pulveriser KO

    I think Adesanya wins fairly easily picking him apart on the feet.

    Think adesanya uses his superior skills on the feet and eventually finds to right punches to ko Romero around the 3/4th round after some scary moments early on

    Adesanya by brutal ko in rounds 1-2.

    The same people saying Yoel will win will then say how he is shot and in his past he would of kicked his arse blah blah blah.

    If I was a betting man I would go with Adesanya; who I believe firmly is the reincarnation or the love-child of Grace Jones. However, I am not a betting man, so I am going with the Cuban Wolverine with the upset.

    I don't believe that Romero will ever be the same after the two wars with Whittaker, as well as some exhausting weight cuts the last few fights. I think the loss to Costa probably diminished him a little. In the countdown show for this fight he said he wanted to fight longer than Bernard Hopkins, but he's taken more damage in individual fights than B-Hop took during the entire Bush/Cheney administration.

    I think Adesanya is a really savy guy, and a guy who is keen to maxmize his historical legacy. I think he believes that despite Romero's reputation as a the 'boogie man'/nightmare of the division, Romero is actually a great fight for him from a risk-reward perspective. I think he's right.

    Those are some next level roids Romero's been gobbling. He feels like steel and it hurts to hit him. I reckon - even at 43 - this cyborg metal freak has some years left in him

    Adesanya is a counter striker. But Yoel fights in explosive bursts. Costa hits like a truck and Yoel was barely phased. Skinny twiglet Adesanya has no power to trouble him, and his twig limbs are going to be in a world of hurt when they land on the man with the feel of the steel

    Romero's winning this gentlemen, take that to the bank :deal:

    Romero doesn't have the gas tank to win. He also will be at a significant reach deficit. He always has the strikers chance but I'm expecting Romero to get picked apart. When he does hurt Adesanya he won't have the gas in the tank to finish him.

    The way he fights now he doesn't need a huge gasbag. He nearly finished Whitaker late on in the fight

    And had he had a better gas tank, he would have. It's almost like watching old arse Hendo. Drop a guy with a huge shot, but can't even go for the finish, otherwise the gas tank will empty too much to finish the fight.

    Just watched media day face offs and interviews. Yoel looks withdrawn and **** eyed with the weight cut coming up, won't be suprised if he has health issues trying to get to the scales.
