The UFC is currently hoping to make a strawweight title fight between reigning champ, Zhang Weili, and former champ, Joanna Jedrzejczyk for some time in early 2020.
Weili (20-1-0) won the UFC strawweight title after knocking out Jessica Andrade in the very first-round of this past August’s UFC on ESPN+ 15 main event. The 30-year-old believes she’s in for another quick finish when she finally faces off against Jedrzejczyk.
“I think she sounds very angry all the time, and her emotions will get her in trouble,” Weili told MMA Junkie. “She is willing to fight me now, but there was a time she didn’t want to fight me, as well. I am ready anytime for battle. Just call my manager Mr. Brian (Butler) and the boss Dana, and we can fight next week.”
“I am always looking to finish a fight as soon as I can so my opponent doesn’t have to endure long periods of damage,” Weili added. “I see the fight ending in one or two rounds. I think Joanna possesses great skill with her striking, along with good power, but I believe in my training and team to have me ready to beat her anywhere.”
“I think she is very angry and emotional, and I will calm her down,” Weili said.
