An exciting strawweight matchup may soon be added to UFC 227.
Several reports indicate that a strawweight showdown between “Dynamite” Danielle Taylor and Weili Zhang is in the works for the August pay per view.
Taylor is 2-2 since signing with the UFC. She holds wins over former title challenger Jessica Penne and atomweight great Seo Hee Ham.
China’s Zhang is one of the hottest strawweight prospects that hasn’t signed to the UFC or Invicta. She’s managed to garner fanfare already with her aggressive style. Zhang is on a sixteen fight win streak since her sole loss in her pro debut.
