Referee and Judges set for UFC 248 strawweight title fight between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk

The referee and judges have been set for the highly-anticipated UFC 248 co-main event between Zhang Weili and Jedrzejczyk.

Zhang Weili looks to make the first defense of her UFC strawweight title at UFC 248 on March 7.

Weili will attempt to make the first defense of her strawweight title on March 7 when she battles former queen of the division, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Referee Keith Peterson will be officiating the match, with Mike Bell, Derek Cleary and Eric Colon serving as judges.

Jedrzejczyk (16-3-0) is coming off an impressive unanimous decision win over Waterson at this past October’s UFC Tampa event. She owns additional notable promotional wins over Jessica Andrade, Claudia Gadelha, Carla Esparza, Tecia Torres and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

Weili won the UFC strawweight title this past August, knocking out Jessica Andrade in the very first-round of their headlining encounter. The UFC’s first Chinese champ hasn’t lost since her professional debut back in 2013 and is currently on a 20-fight win streak.

UFC 248 takes place on Saturday March 7, 2020, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.

  1. one of the best refs in the game and 3 experienced and impartial judges, 2 of which have scored several of Joanna’s fights competently. Mike Bell scored Zhang vs Torres so this group knows the fighters and their styles.
