White Weighs In On Middleweight Chaos

UFC’s middleweight division continues to be in a state of flux following Israel Adesanya’s knockout of Robert Whittaker at UFC 243.

While Paulo Costa was set to be next in line for a shot at the new champion, an injury has kept him out of the UFC’s plans, which has caused Adesanya to call out Yoel Romero, something Dana White isn’t sold on.

“[Adesanya] wants to fight Yoel Romero,” White said. “He wants Romero. So we’re talking about giving Romero a fight coming up soon here and then (Adesanya) will fight the winner of that fight.”

“Costa tore his bicep so he had to have surgery. He’s claiming that he will be back sooner than he will be. That’s not what the doctor is telling me, so that’s not true.”
