Legendary NFL player Tom Brady will be watching UFC 248 and shared his prediction for Weili Zhang vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Tom Brady is a quarterback for the New England Patriots and a 6-time Super Bowl winner. Brady is also good friends with UFC president Dana White, who is a season ticket holder for the New England Patriots. This is the last year on his contract with the Patriots and could potentially become a free agent in 2 weeks’ time. As a fan, White has been trying to lure him to play for the Las Vegas Raiders.
Ahead of this weekend’s UFC 248, Dana White did an Instagram Live video featuring Tom Brady. The UFC president asked him to share who he believes will be the winner of UFC 248 co-main event between Zhang and Jedrzejczyk. Brady quickly broke down the fight and shared his winner (via ESPN).
“It’s a great fight, especially if the old Joanna shows up. She’s an amazing fighter. She’s gone the distance a bunch of times. She’s got great height, reach, and she’s relentless. But Weili’s been unbelievable. And I think she’s been overlooked for a while,’ Brady said.
“And not to mention, I’m a big fan of hers. Been watching her for a long time. She’s got the ability to stand up, so strong and, skill for skill is one of the best in the world. So it’s a great matchup. You guys picked a good one.”
Clearly, Brady wasn’t too keen to pick a side, but White pushed him to make a prediction for the bout, and eventually, Brady gave in.
“In the end — and I usually don’t make predictions, but on this, I will, cause you asked me to — I think Weili wins just because I think she’s got a few more ways to win,” Brady said.
“Man, I think it’s a KO.”
