This will be the second time Zhang Weili defends her title. Previously, the current champ just came off her first title defense against Joanna Jędrzejczyk, which was dubbed the fight of the year in 2020. Based on what we heard, a rematch between them is also in the work. Meanwhile, her rival is the former champion, Rose Namajunas. So far, Namajaunas has racked up two victories over Joanna Jędrzejczyk.

She also came off an avenged battle against Jessica Andrade this time. In this clash, the Lithuanian-American fighter proved that she could play in the big league easily. Zhang Weili and Rose Najamunas are excellent strikers, so we could expect to see some explosive actions during their clash. Furthermore, Namajunas’s footwork is also a big plus, where she tends to hit and get out quickly. On the other hand, the champ’s style showcases more tools and moves with elbows, knees, and kicks.

The division

So far, the women’s strawweight division fighters are arguably the most talented names in women’s MMA. Aside from the two, there are others that have been trying to get a chance to dethrone Weili. On the other hand, Shevchenko and Nunes are still ruling the flyweight and bantamweight throne. The Strawweight defense fight should take place at the UFC 261. Additionally, another women’s title fight is reportedly going to be added to the event soon. We could be looking at a matchup between Valentina Shevchenko and Jessica Andrade.
