Yoel Romero left fans in awe after producing one of the most terrifying yet motivating speeches of all time.
UFC star Romero sat down with ESPN ahead of his clash with Israel Adesanya at UFC 248 on Saturday night.
Romero will be gunning to win the middleweight championship and he explained his mindset heading into the fight with a Muhammad Ali analogy.

"Muhammad [Ali] had the best defense in the heavyweight [division]. The best moves, in the heavyweight [division]. But... shorter man, dirty boxing... He beat him one time," the 42-year-old explained.
"Everything is possible in your life when you believe! When you believe, everything is possible. You have two hands like me. Everything is possible. Go. Go and take it. Whatever you want to do."
Romero's intensity is powerful and interviewer Phil Murphy tweeted a response to the clip.
I was asked if the *gulp* was me sipping water
It was not.

Fans have reacted to Romero's speech and they think Adesanya is in for a tough fight at the T-Mobile Arena.
No lie watching this was way more effective than all of the hours of Tony Robbins seminars that I've watched.

A clip has also emerged of a reporter asking Romero the question of the biggest mistake he's made in his life.
A translator relays the question to 'The Soldier of God' who bluntly responds with, 'You don't wanna know'.
