UFC 248 Medical Suspensions Revealed

UFC 248 was full of exciting fights. Especially if you negate the main event. Regardless of the last fight of the night, the bout that stole the show was Weili Zhang vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk.  The ladies competed in the co-main event of the night for Weili’s UFC strawweight championship. She was able to successfully defend her belt, but not without both women rearranging each other’s faces in the process. UFC 248 was also bloody and gruesome. A lot of fighters that participated on the card gave it their all that night and will be put on ice as they serve their mandatory medical suspensions.

Both Zhang and Joanna fought in what will probably be remembered as the greatest women’s mixed martial arts bout of all time. However, Beneil Dariush and Sean O’Malley also added to a massive amount of entertainment that the card provided.
