Tonight's the night when the Octagon will see not one, but TWO title fights. UFC 248 is rocking the T-Mobile Arena in Sin City itself, and a duo of worthy champions will leave Las Vegas with big gold belts around their waist. It's Adesanya vs Romero, it's Zhang vs Jedrzejczyk, it's UFC 248 - and you can live stream every second, no matter where you are.
First to the headline match. UFC fans will need no introduction to Israel Adesanya. The undefeated UFC Middleweight champion was Voted Fighter of the Year in 2019 and is showing no signs of relinquishing his stranglehold on the division. With a kickboxing background, it was actually an assault of punches that knocked out Robert Whittaker in Australia to unify the championship last October.
But standing opposite him in the Octagon tonight will be a Cuban Olympic silver medallist, freestyle wrestling world champion and number #3 ranked fighter in the middleweight division - Yoel Romero. Aged 42 and with two consecutive losses in his last two UFC appearances, Romero will certainly go into this one as underdog. But after a fighting career as glittering as his, becoming a UFC champion is the one thing he's missing from his CV. Will tonight finally be the night?
In what is effectively a double main event, Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk will do battle for the UFC Women's Strawweight Championship. Zhang became the first ever Chinese-born champ in the organisation's history when she destroyed Jéssica Andrade in less than a minute in August. While Jedrzejczyk is a former Strawweight title holder herself (racking up the most ever defences in that division) and will be desperate to take back the belt tonight.
