Not everybody agrees.
As most combined martial arts (MMA) followers would attest, it’s onerous to say complete supremacy with out first defeating the division champion. And even when Adesanya is ready to overthrow Robert Whittaker in September, No. 1-ranked Yoel Romero stays in his rearview mirror.
Romero (13-Three) was anticipated to make his Octagon return on the upcoming UFC occasion in Ft. Lauderdale; nonetheless, an premature bout with pneumonia booted him from his Ronaldo Souza rematch and left him sidelined till additional discover.
Adesanya (17-Zero), in the meantime, goes to struggle “The Reaper” in a middleweight title unification bout later this yr, because of an exciting, five-round unanimous choice win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236 final weekend in Atlanta (watch it).
Perhaps we are able to resurrect this bout whereas we wait?
