Zhang Weili Ready to Defend Her Title Again

Zhang Weili is one of the best fighters in the history of the women’s flyweight division. The evidence of this is that she’s 24-3 overall. One of those three losses happened on her professional debut when she lost by unanimous decision.

The other two losses happened in title fights against Rose Namajunas in 2021. Since then, she’s 3-0, with wins over Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Carla Esparza, and Amanda Lemos. The last two were fights for the title.

If she defends her title against Yan Xiaonan, we might see her get a chance to settle the score with Rose Namajunas, which is an additional motivation for her to give her utmost in the UFC 300 co-main event.

Can Yan Xiaonan Cause a Sensation on April 13?

Yan Xiaonan is 17-3-1, which is a pretty impressive record. However, the reason why she got to fight for the title is that she was fantastic in her most recent fight.

What we’re talking about is the fight with Jessica Andrade last year, in which Yan KO-ed her opponent in the first round, winning the Performance of the Night bonus for this.

Striking is her strongest weapon, which is no surprise given that she’s got a background in Sanda, which is a sort of Chinse version of kickboxing.

She also has decent grappling and wrestling skills, which she primarily uses for defense. The evidence of this is that she only lost one fight by submission, back in 2010. She’s also without a single win by this method in her entire career.

Zhang Weili vs. Yan Xiaonan Prediction

Yan Xiaonan is one of the best strikers in women’s MMA, but we’re not sure if she’s better than Zhang Weili. The reigning champ hits hard and is hard as nails.

She also has plenty of other weapons in her arsenal, so we might see her find a way to take the fight to the ground and finish her opponent either by ground-and-pound or a submission. Either way, we’re pretty confident she will finish the fight before the final bell.

Pick: Zhang Weili
