UFC Main Event: Zhang vs. Joanna
On Saturday, March 7, UFC women’s strawweight champion Zhang Weili (21-1) and former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (16-4) battled it out in a bout that will go down as one of the greatest fights in UFC history. The co-main was full of action from the start and kept fans on the edge of their seats, with Weili making the first defense of her strawweight title, defeating former long-time champion Jedrzejczyk via a very tight split decision. Both fighters put on a spectacular performance, landing 351 combined strikes, the third-most thrown in a UFC fight.
Additionally, the entirety of UFC 248: Adesanya vs. Romero, and a new episode of the expert analysis series, Detail, featuring former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier breaking down Zhang vs. Joanna, are both now streaming on-demand to all ESPN+ subscribers.
UFC Unleashed: Ferguson vs. Cerrone
Two of UFC’s most exciting lightweights – former interim UFC lightweight champion — Tony Ferguson (26-3) and former UFC lightweight title challenger Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (36-14) — went toe-to-toe at UFC 238 in Chicago, June 2019, in one of the most anticipated matchups in the lightweight division. Ferguson secured his 12th consecutive victory after defeating Cerrone by technical knockout (doctor stoppage) in the second round.
UFC Main Event: Khabib vs. Poirier
UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0), remained undefeated following a hard-fought victory against interim UFC lightweight champion, Dustin Poirier (25-6) by submission in the third-round at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi in September 2019.
