Las Vegas played host to UFC 248 last day and the show had its fair share of great moments. The biggest story of the night came to Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Both the Strawweight stars engaged in a five-round war that would clearly go down into the UFC Hall of Fame one day.

Joanna and Zhang had their moments throughout the fight and Joanna even fought through a huge hematoma on her head that blew up her head. After the five-rounds, the judges ruled in favour of Zhang via a split decision.

Meanwhile, the main event failed to live up to the expectations. The action was less as both fighters relied on a cautious approach throughout the five rounds. Adesanya comfortably took home the unanimous decision win while Yoel Romero complained about the lack of action post-fight despite not making his moves.

Beneil Dariush got a huge knockout win over Drakkar Klose in the second round while Neil Magny staged a great comeback against Li Jingliang. Magny looked sharp and refreshed after his long layoff and took home a decision win. Alex Oliveira also picked up a win in the main card while Sean O’Malley made his return dominantly with a first-round TKO.

Below are the complete results.
