This Saturday, the UFC returns to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas with a card that features two highly anticipated title fights. The pay-per-view also comes equipped with a solid undercard that's sure to pack a punch.

In the main event, the undefeated middleweight king Israel Adesanya will attempt to defend his title against the always dangerous Yoel Romero. The champ hopes to be the first man to stop Romero inside a UFC cage.

The co-main will pit reigning Women's Strawweight Champion Zhang Weili against former longtime titleholder Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Jedrzejczyk is eager to prove her days as the division's top dog are far from over.

The undercard bouts feature several fighters who love to throw punches in bunches and should deliver plenty of excitement.

UFC 248 offers another intriguing match up between a pair of athletes on three-fight win streaks, as Beneil Dariush and Drakkar Klose, are set to square off.

Rounding out the main card are two bouts that will likely be in contention for a Fight of the Night bonus, including Neil Magny versus Li Jingliang and Alex Oliveira taking on Max Griffin.

Now that the table's been set, let's get to the picks.
