Tecia Torres vs Weili Zhang official for UFC 235 in March

One of MMA’s hottest prospects is looking toward the top of her division.

The UFC took to Twitter to announce an exciting women’s strawweight scrap between Tecia Torres and Weili Zhang.

China’s Zhang is coming off a blistering and bloody first round victory over Jessica Aguilar last week. That win made it 2-0 in the Octagon and 18-1 overall.

Torres will look to get back in the win column. She currently rides a two-fight skid with losses to Jessica  Andrade and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. She has been a staple in the top strawweight seven since the divisions birth on TUF 20.

Who will you be rooting for?

  1. Excited about this match-up. Just a little bummed that I like both fighters so much and that I have to wait until March to see it. I don’t think Tecia’s ever been finished while Weili has finished 17 out of her 18 victories. On the other hand, Tecia has faced fighters with a much higher skill set. This will go a long way in establishing just how good Weili is.

    1. This should be good. Can’t believe how easily she beat JAG ! Here, you’ve also got the whole “trying to avenge my former teammate and training partner for a long time” angle.

        1. Souza is very overlooked. I kinda briefly forgot that she’s in the UFC now. Would like to see her fight more often. She’s only had 5 fights in the last 3 years. I think if they give her the opportunity, she’s gonna shock some folks in the top 15.

    1. oh, wow ! That would be fire ! Whoa ! Souza vs Barber ! Queen of Violence vs Queen of Violence ! Wow ! I’d rather not see them fight , though, until it’s for something bigger. I want them both to get lots of momentum !
