UFC 248 is a little more than a month away, but the hype is already building for the early March pay-per-view event for the mixed martial arts juggernaut.

On Mar. 7 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, two championship fights will headline the show.

In the co-main event of UFC 248, the promotion’s Strawweight championship is at stake, as incumbent champ Weili Zhang (20-1) faces off against challenger Joanna Jedrzejczyk (16-3) in a five-round affair.

The main event of UFC 248 next month sees the Middleweight championship up for grabs as incumbent champion Israel Adesanya (18-0) fights challenger Yoel Romero (13-4) in another five-round contest.

More on the latter later.

Our focus on this day is the Strawweight title fight.

Remember, we will hold off on predicting the winner for these title fights at the present time.

Contender Comparison:

Heading into the Mar. 7 Strawweight title fight, challenger Joanna Jedrzejczyk is the taller combatant at 5-foot-6, two inches taller than champion Weili Zhang’s 5-foot-4 frame.

How they got here:

Zhang has posted a record of 5-0 in her last five contests, most recently stopping Jessica Andrade last Aug. 31 in UFC on ESPN+ 15’s main event in Shenzhen, China by first-round knockout.

In the other corner, challenger Joanna Jedrzejczyk has posted a record of 2-3 in her last five fights.

On Mar. 7, she looks to build off of her victory against Michelle Waterson by unanimous decision in UFC on ESPN+ 19’s main event on Oct. 12.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that Joanna Jedrzejczyk has a 2.5-inch reach advantage (65.5 inches to 63 inches) over Weili Zhang heading into this contest.
