The former UFC strawweight champion, Zhang Weili lost her title against Rose Namajunas in the co-main event of UFC 261. This loss ended her 21 fight winning streak and it resulted to be the biggest loss of her MMA career.

Since this loss, Weili has been ailing to win her title back and now she is booked to face Namajunas in a rematch at UFC 268. Zhang Weili revealed multiple reasons for losing the title against Rose Namajunas in the first fight but the major one of them was the crowd being so hostile that her focus got disturbed.

The first-ever Chinese-born UFC champion really did receive a hostile welcome from the crowd, but now she is utterly focused on the rematch. Weili shifted her training camp to the U.S. and now she is training with some of the greatest MMA fighters of all time such as former two-division UFC champion, Henry Cejudo, former two divisions Bellator champion, Patricio Freire and Chan Sung Jung.

Weili knocked out Jessica Andrade to win the UFC women’s strawweight title and then she defended it against Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 248 which turned out to be the fight of the year in 2020. Now Zhang Weili is determined to get her title back at any cost.
