The bout between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 248 sure didn't disappoint. In fact their showdown was one for the ages, featuring a number of unbelievable moments. The two battled back and forth, trading blows before forcing a split decision by the judges.

Ultimately, it was Zhang Weili who defended the strawweight title, but it didn't come easy. After edging out Jedrzejcyzk in the first two rounds, her opponent battled back.

Jedrzejcyzk seemed to gain the upper hand on Weili in the third and fourth rounds, though Weili did land a critical blow directly to her forehead late in the fourth.

Overall, though, the two pieced together a tantalizing back-and-forth match. Both of them came in guns blazing and showed the characteristics of a winning fighter, but only one was able to walk away with a victory.

Matchups like Saturday night's don't come around very often. If UFC is given the opportunity, it seems like a no-brainer that these two should fight again.
