UFC 248 went down this past Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada and two title fights headlined the card.

In the main event, Israel Adesanya won a very lackluster decision and has been medically suspended for further evaluation. Meanwhile, to no surprise, Weili Zhang and Joanna Jedrzejczyk received lengthy sits for their absolute war in the co-main event where it was Zhang who won a split decision.

Following the event, the Nevada State Athletic Commission released the medical suspensions (via MMA Fighting).
