UFC 248 ‘Embedded’ video, Ep. 1: ‘No one remembers people who duck fights’

UFC 248 is all set to go down this Sat. night (March 7, 2020) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Headlining the event — which streams exclusively on ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) — will be a Middleweight title fight between division king, Israel Adesanya, and top contender, Yoel Romero.

It will be “The Last Stylebender’s” first attempt at defending his title since winning it last October by knocking out Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 (see it here). For Romero, it will be his second attempt at trying to capture UFC gold for the first time.

In the co-main event, UFC women’s Strawweight champion, Weili Zhang, will defend her title for the first time when she faces off against former longtime champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Plus, the event will mark the return of Sean O’ Malley after a two-year absence when he takes on Jose Alberto Quinonez.

Before all of the action goes down, check out some exclusive behind-the-scenes action thanks to the ever-present cameras of “Embedded,” which details each fighters’ last-minute preparations and duties during fight week.
