Israel Adesanya's UFC 248 title defence against Yoel Romero didn't play out as most thought.

The Nigerian-Kiwi did end the night as he started - with the gold belt around his waist, but it wasn't without controversy.

In one of the weirdest fights in combat sports history, both combatants refused to engage for large periods of the fight - Adesanya doing enough in the minds of the judges to get his hand raised. 

So who was to blame for the lacklustre scrap? The Fight Club crew discuss that and more including the epic five-round war in the co-main event.

Plus we find out what Junior Fa's asking price is for a mega-fight with Joseph Parker.
