UFC 248: Adesanya vs Romero Preview


This Saturday night the UFC returns to PPV for UFC 248! Coming to you live from the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas Nevada we have two huge Championship fights scheduled to take place. The main event will feature two of the best Middleweights in the division as Israel Adesanya will defend his title against Yoel Romero. Then in the Co-Main event the women of the Strawweight division will be in the spotlight as Weili Zhang will defend her title against Joanna Jedrzejczyk. It should be an incredible night of action and we will have plenty of coverage here at Ginger Thread. Lets take a look at how the entire UFC 248 card shapes up....

Middleweight Championship: Israel Adesanya(18-0-0) vs Yoel Romero(13-4-0)

I'll be honest im not super excited about this card. There is no intensity for the main event between Adesanya and Romero but hopefully once they are locked in the cage that will change and we will get a great fight. The Co-Main event between Zhang and Joanna has a little more intensity but i'm still not over the top excited for it. The fight i'm looking forward to the most is actually on the prelims in Sean O'Malley vs Jose Alberto. O'Malley is a young an exciting fighter who is also undefeated. This will be his toughest test yet and will prove if he is a legit contender or not. I will definitely be watching come Saturday night and as per usual will have updates throughout the night on my social media. So make sure you tune in tomorrow night on ESPN+ or PPV starting at 8:00pm.
