So far nothing has been confirmed about who will be Israel’s first challenger.
The Cuban fighter always demands 100% from his opponents. And he has only been knocked out once. Win or lose, he always does great fighting.
However, the owner of the 185-pound title thinks there is someone more dangerous than Romero: Jared Cannonier.
Recently commented to MMA Fighting.
“I am 100% attentive to him. It is a beast. It is the dark horse of this division. He is the type that everyone wants to fight with, but you better not fight him because he will put you to sleep. I think it’s the second most dangerous in the division after me. I hope to fight him after my next fight.”
Although, as we see, Adesanya also indicates that he does not expect Cannonier to be his next opponent.
