Report: Danielle Taylor vs Weili Zhang targeted for #UFC227

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.

  1. Darn! I thought their matchup for UFC 227 was a done deal. I sure hope it comes to fruition. IMO, Zhang is THE hottest strawweight prospect that hasn’t signed to the UFC or Invicta andranks right up there with Virna Jandiroba and Janaisa Morandin. While I had hoped to see a fight arranged between her and Angela Lee to determine Asia’s top dog, I’m looking forward to seeing Weili establish just how good she is in the UFC.

    1. Also, it looks like the matchup should be a done deal very soon! Ive had a hard tme finding info on it with only a few sources reporting the UFC 227 line-up as “projected”. I expect it to be confirmed within the next few days by the UFC!
