Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero will battle in the main event of UFC 248, which takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Adesanya will defend the UFC Middleweight Championship for the first time since defeating Robert Whittaker in October.
In the co-main event, Weili Zhang will also make her first title defense as she competes against former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Zhang stopped Jessica Andrade in 42 seconds last August to win the title.
