The Octagon was home in Las Vegas on Saturday with UFC 248 and headlined by two title fights.
Taking place from T-Mobile Arena, UFC 248 drew 15,077 fans for a gate of $2.75 million. The event was headlined by a Middleweight Title fight between Israel Adesanya and Yoel Romero. The co-main event featured a Women's Strawweight Title tilt between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
As far as bonuses go, Fight of the Night honors went to Weili and Jędrzejczyk for their 25-minute title classic, which has already been called "the greatest women's fight of all-time."
