UFC 248 faceoff video: Israel Adesanya, Yoel Romero's long staring contest
LAS VEGAS – Friday marked the final time the competitors for the highly anticipated UFC 248 main event cross paths before fight night. The ceremonial weigh-ins are the final bit of official business before the card.
The UFC 248 ceremonial weigh-ins were held at the site of the fight, T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
That included the main eventers, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and challenger Yoel Romero, as well as the other 22 participants on the card. The fighters weighed in officially Friday morning, with all but one of them making weight.
Adesanya (18-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) will attempt to make his first title defense, whereas Romero (13-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) hopes his third shot at UFC gold is the charm. Romero has competed in two career UFC title fights, and has dropped both.
Check out the final pre-fight faceoff between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero, before they go head-to-head at UFC 248.
