Following that event, we need some fresh, new challengers for the middleweight and women's strawweight titles and there's a bunch of other fighters who need match-ups too.

Israel Adesanya might've beaten Yoel Romero, but the 30-year old champion has a whole host of hungry 185lbers chomping at the bit to take him out. However, there's one middleweight among the group who is quite clearly the number one contender for the title. Will he be the man to take away Stylebender's undefeated record?

UFC women's strawweight champion, Zhang Weili, became a legend at UFC 248 after her breathtakingly brutal battle with former champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. China's first UFC title holder not only showed her incredible skill, but also a tremendous amount of heart during her victory.
