UFC 248 Predictions

Two title fights, four incredible fighters, one night of mixed martial arts violence.

The UFC return to Las Vegas with an absolutely stellar event filled with potentially explosive fights. UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, will want to maintain his undefeated steak and and his title, but faces a difficult task in feared 185lber, Yoel Romero.

Adesanya has risen up the middleweight ranks in no time, proving that when it comes to striking, he's light years ahead of everyone else in his weight class. His knockout victory over Robert Whittaker for the title at UFC 243 last October was sensational and something his opponent, Yoel Romero, was unable able to do in two fights.

However, counting out the Cuban wrestler would be a mistake, as he's proven time and time again that he can defeat any opponent on his best day. All he needs to do is land one shot and it could be lights out for anyone standing across the Octagon from him.

Also, newly-crowned UFC strawweight champ, Zhang Weili, will have her first title defense against former long-time 115lb champ, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The two have traded plenty of verbal barbs online and when you add that to their aggressive fight styles, anything can happen.

As always, we've gone through the main card and predicted who will come out on top on Saturday night. First, let's have a look at the under card...
