UFC 248 fight week has finally arrived, and with it UFC’s full “Countdown” episode for the pay-per-view (PPV) event on March 7, 2020. We’ve been hyped about this event from the moment it was announced and honestly feel like it’s got the potential to be the most exciting card of the year.
Not only does Israel Adesanya defend his Middleweight strap against the beast-like Yoel Romero, but strawweight champ Zhang Weili faces the toughest challenge of her career against the greatest strawweight titleholder there ever was, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. The undercard is strong too with Neil Magny, Li Jingliang, Alex Oliveira, and Sean O’Malley, among others.
But with such strong championship fights, there ain’t time for none of them. This UFC 248 “Countdown” episode is all about the belt holders and the challengers.
