Video: Israel Adesanya, Yoel Romero face off, then dance off at UFC 248 press conference

New, comments

They don’t fight for another month, but Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero have already had a close-up look at each other’s skills.

The two middleweight stars were in Houston on Friday for a press conference to promote UFC 248, the event that will see Adesanya defend his UFC championship against Romero. After fielding questions from the media, the two took part in a chatty face-off that eventually broke out into a dance-off.

Perhaps looking to impress his Cuban foe, Adesanya showed off some salsa moves, which prompted Romero to shuffle his feet before executing a backflip into splits maneuver. Adesanya looked like he was ready to start breakdancing before the situation defused itself.

UFC 248 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 7.
