The UFC continues on with their heavy schedule, this time stopping by Vegas for a good ol’ pay-per-view event. UFC 248 will feature two title fights on top, and some of their better prospects are being used to fill out the rest of the March 7th event in the T-Mobile Arena.
The feature attraction is Israel Adesanya’s first full UFC middleweight title defense, where he will be taking on Yoel Romero. Despite Romero dropping his last two bouts in a row, Adesanya wanted to face him - so here we are.
The co-main event will see UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang defend her title for the first time against former longtime champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
