Weili Zhang ready to fight Valentina Shevchenko

Reclaiming her title against Carla Esparza, reigning UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang is ready to take on UFC flyweight belt holder Valentina Shevchenko.

“Yes, I would like to meet Valentina Shevchenko, by all means,” said the Chinese woman in the next edition of the MMA Hour program. “No questions. I thought about this a couple of years ago. In the end, we will split the octagon because our weight classes are close. I don’t know if I can take the title from her, but one thing I can guarantee is that if we get into the octagon with her, it will be fireworks. It will be a great performance, regardless of the result.”

On November 12 at UFC 281 in New York, Weili Zhang regained her championship belt by finishing Carl Esparza with a rear naked choke in the second round, and Valentina Shevchenko last entered the octagon in June of this year, winning a split decision against Taila Santos.
