Israel Adesanya defended his title against Yoel Romero

Israel Adesanya (19-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) kept his middleweight title with a decision win over Yoel Romero (13-5 MMA, 9-4 UFC).

It was the main event of UFC 248, but the fight featured a ton of boos from the fans for more inactivity than action.

Adesanya won with a pair of 48-47 scores and a 49-46.

“People bought the pay-per-view to see a real fight – not this,” Romero said after the fight. “You need to have respect for people. People paid for a pay-per-view, for what? For a fight.”

According to the UFC’s official stats, Romero threw just 89 strikes in 25 minutes and landed 40 for a 45 percent success rate. Adesanya’s percentage was even lower – 36 (48 of 132).
