The co-main event of UFC 248 is now being billed as one of the best fights in the history of UFC by a number of MMA pundits, as Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Zhang Weili went on a war against each other in order to grab the women’s strawweight title. Though Zhang Weili successfully retained her title against Joanna Jedrzejczyk, it was anything but an easy night for her. The Champion from China tried everything she could but failed to dominate an emerging Joanna Jedrzejczyk for most of their time in the octagon. However, the judges' scorecard claimed Zhang Weili as a superior performer and awarded her the victory over the Polish fighter at UFC 248.
