The UFC is back in Las Vegas again for UFC 248. Israel Adesanya is there to defend his undisputed middleweight title for the first time in a fight against Yoel Romero, an Olympic silver medal winner.  Adesanya took the middleweight title from Robert Whittaker back in UFC 243 and with a perfect 18-0 MMA record and 7 UFC wins, he’ll certainly be keen to keep up this pace. While Adesanya has only been on the UFC scene since 2018, Romera has much more UFC experience, having been fighting in the UFC for the last 7 years.
