The reigning champion of the UFC’s lightest division, Weili Zhang, who easily lifted Francis Ngannou a year ago, surprised fans again with her power stats, lifting world basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal off the ground.
“Having met even a big guy like Shaq, I can still lift him,” the Chinese woman wrote on social media, posting a related video.
The UFC champion also put the American giant’s abs to the test.
Shaquille O’Neal, 51, reportedly weighs in at around 150 pounds, while Weili Zhang holds the UFC title in the 52-pound weight class.
Last November, the 34-year-old Chinese representative regained the UFC featherweight championship belt by defeating Carla Esparza by rear-naked choke in the second round, and in August of this year, Weili Zhang successfully defended the title by winning a unanimous decision over Amanda Lemos.
