Join us in the video player above tonight for a ‘radio style’ play-by-play broadcast of the UFC 248 PPV (pay-per-view) MAIN CARD with LIVE updates, results & reactions in our Live YouTube Video Stream, which will begin at approximately 8:30-9PM CST, at the start of the Featured Preliminary bout between Jose Alberto Quinones & Sean O’Malley on SBN MMA’s YouTube Channel.
The UFC is showcasing a night of two title fights, in the main event of the evening we have a technical middleweight bout with the #1 MMA Fighter of the Year, Israel ‘The Last Stylebender’ Adesanya defending his title at UFC 248 in the Main Event TONIGHT (Sat., March 7, 2020) from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The contender is Yoel ‘Soldier of God’ Romero, who will be entering the octagon for the first time since losing to Paulo Costa at UFC 241 back in August, 2017, fighting out of Florida, with a 13-4 fight record going up against Adesanya’s unprecedented, as yet undefeated 18-0 record.
Also on the card, is a highly-anticipated women’s Strawweight Co-Main Event Title scrap, with the top-ranked newly crowned Weili ‘Magnum’ Zhang defending her title against the former champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk, who looks to win back the title tonight; rounding things out, we will also be treated to some Li Jingliang and ‘Cowboy’ Oliveira... what a fun night of fights we have to look forward to!
You may have your reasons not to watch this event live, or shell out the cash for the PPV - so we did it for you. Maybe there is just something more important going on tonight, where you just can’t be in front of the TV. Whatever the case may be, we’ve got you covered! During the entire five-fight main card portion of UFC 248, throughout the telecast, SBN MMA’s Matt Ryan, will engage with the live chat whenever possible. Along with his co-host Harry Terjanian, we will be doing a radio-style play-by-play broadcast of every single important bit of violence. The show is a modern YouTube stream, that will broadcast in the video player above, sort of like a sports talk show/bar hangout meets vlog.
Please join us and consider subscribing to SBN MMA on YouTube. Meanwhile, as the third member of our team, I will moderate your live chat, laying the ‘ban hammer’ down on those pesky spammers and link beggars, as well as offering support to the guys throughout the show with factoids, bonus updates and adding results and updated fight records in full detail, to the chat and description, as well as right here in this post, so no need to go anywhere else...
