UFC 248

The UFC held the weigh-ins yesterday for today’s UFC 248 event. All the title competitors are on weight and ready to go for today’s double title main event.

In the main event, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya (184.5 pounds) will defend his title against Yoel Romero (185 pounds). Romero, who has had weight issues in the past for title fights, thankfully came in on weight at 185 pounds.

In the co-main event, strawweight champion Zhang Weili (115 pounds) and former champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (115 pounds) are both on weight and ready to go for tonight’s title fight.

Only Emily Whitmire came in heavy for her previously scheduled strawweight bought against Polyana Viana. Whitmire will now forfeit 20 percent of her purse to Viana, and the fight will move forward as scheduled.

UFC 248 is set for later today at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be available on ESPN+. Prelims will be shown on ESPN and ESPN+. You can check out the full weigh-in results and ceremonial weigh-ins video below:
