It's a big day for fight fans, as UFC 248 is set to take place in Vegas and features a fascinating card headlined by a middleweight championship bout between undefeated Israel Adesanya – the current title holder – and challenger Yoel Romero. Here's how to live stream UFC 248 and watch Adesanya vs Romero online from anywhere in the world.
Adesanya comes into tonight's fight with an unblemished 18-0 record. The 30-year-old Nigerian-New Zealander will be full of confidence following an emphatic victory over Robert Whittaker in his last octagon appearance, which was last October in Melbourne.
But Cuban veteran Yoel Romero stands in his way, with the former Olympic wrestling silver medallist widely regarded as one of most athletic fighters to ever fight in UFC. The 40-year-old has so far failed to hit the heights his skill set suggests, but this fight provides him with another opportunity to defy his age and finally become a UFC title holder.
Adesanya's ruthless dispatch of Whittaker was a feat that Romero wasn't able to match in his two meetings against the Australian star, which may give some indication as to the likely outcome of Saturday's showdown. Regarded as one of best strikers in the sport, Adesanya is 10 years younger than his opponent and has a 6.5-inch reach advantage to boot.
