Although the fight disappointed, Israel Adesanya's entrance did not. Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Israel Adesanya beat Yoel Romero by via unanimous decision in their fight at UFC 248 in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Unlike the Joanna Jędrzejczyk-Zhang Weili fight, the Adesanya-Romero match failed to impress fans.

At least Adesanya gave the fans a show with his cage entrance that reminded many of the King of Zamunda entrance from “Coming to America.”

That was a better show than the fight, which was mostly met with groaning and disappointment from fans and Romero alike. Romero complained in his post-fight interview about Adesanya running in the fight.

Adesanya is now a perfect 19-0 in his pro MMA career.
