Two UFC fighters who don’t lose will go at it April 18th when Justin Gaethje, 21-2 (18 KOs, 1 Submission), (+160) looks to do battle with Tony Ferguson, 25-3 (12 KOs, 8 Submissions), (-200). Ferguson has won his last 12 fights in a row and only suffered one loss in the last eleven years. He’s a tough draw for the younger Gaethje, who is prone to taking punishment at times.
There’s more to UFC 248 than the Adesanya/Romero and the ladies going at it! Be sure to check out Loot’s take on the middleweight battle between Derek Brunson, 20-7 (11 KOs, 3 Submissions), (+195) and Edmen Shahbazyan, 11-0 (9 KOs, 1 Submission), (-235), as well as the welterweight fight between Neil Magny, 21-7 (7 KOs, 3 Submissions), (+150) vs. Li Jingliang, 17-5 (7 KOs, 5 Submissions), (-180)!
One of the brightest rising stars in the UFC, Israel Adesanya, 18-0 (14 KOs), (-235) looks to defend his middleweight title vs. the aging 42 year old Yoel Romero, 13-4 (11 KOs), (+195). On the women’s side of the docket, the dangerous Zhang Weili, 20-1 (10 KOs, 7 Submissions), (-145) comes in as a short favorite vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk, 16-3 (4 KOs, 1 Submission), (+115). Weili has won with 17 stoppages in her last 20 fights. Joanna hasn’t won by stoppage since 2015. Her short underdog price indicates oddsmakers think she has a shot here. Get Loot’s take here!
While the Jones/Reyes fight is the headliner, the UFC 247 undercard also features a great battle between a couple of tough ladies in a Flyweight title fight between champion Valentina Shevchenko and challenger Katlyn Chookagian. Shevchenko is making the third defense of her 125-pound belt. On the men’s side, Loot breaks down a great heavyweight fight between Derrick Lewis, 22-7 (18 KOs, 1 Submission), (-280) and Ilir Latifi, 14-7 (6 KOs, 4 Submissions), (+220).
Jon Jones 25-1 (10 KOs, 6 Submissions), one of the UFC’s most decorated champions, looks to defend his light heavyweight championship against the undefeated Dominick Reyes, 12-0 (7 KOs, 2 Submissions). Jones comes into this one as a moderate -440 favorite, which immediately tells us that bookmakers are suspicious of his left hand, which can instantly end a fight when landed.
