  1. One would think that given the role Weili Zhang played in making all this come together, the UFC would want to take advantage of her marketability and desire to fight as frequently as possible and push for as many title fights as she’s willing to take. Instead, it appears they’ve hung her out to dry while trying to negotiate terms acceptable to her potential challenger, Rose Namajunas. No other current champion in the UFC has had to wait as long this past year as Zhang has to defend their title and there is still no announced date. It makes one wonder how much her manager, who also manages Rose and Carla, is contributing to this delay. I’m sure he’d like nothing better than to have Carla challenge Weili first, followed by Rose.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Juchi! You’re right. It’s a shame that we haven’t seen Weili Zhang compete since almost 12 months ago. Hope that the UFC can really work something out for her this year.
