Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero took part in a dance off during the UFC 248 press conference and it's being dubbed as the 'greatest moment in press conference history'.

The two fighters were at the press conference in Houston to promote their Middleweight championship main event on March 7.

Adesanya and Romero squared up to one another in typical fashion before an unexpected twist involving salsa dances and a backflip.

Check out the video below.


Adesanya busted out a salsa jig to the delight of the crowd before Romero decided to steal the show.

The Cuban fighter begins his own dance before performing the backflip followed by the splits, an impressive feat for a 42-year-old.

UFC President Dana White is in the midst of the action and can't keep a straight face.

Adesanya then gives White his championship belt and teases some breakdancing.

However, 'The Last Stylebender' opts not to and tells his rival 'we'll save it' before shaking Romero's hand.

Many fans took to social media and commented on the press conference and praising the dance moves.





There's every chance that Adesanya brings dancing into his entrance in the T-Mobile Arena next month just as he did at UFC 243.

Many claimed that he'd 'changed the walkout game' after being flanked by three dancers as he headed to the octagon.

Elsewhere, Adesanya's rival Jon Jones is in action this evening when he defends his Light Heavyweight championship against Dominick Reyes.

Who do you think will win when Adesanya and Romero square off next month?
