Video: UFC champion Zhang Weili receives massive welcome in return to China

As expected, Zhang Weili was well received in her return to her home country.

UFC women’s strawweight champion was greeted by multitudes of fans, as she triumphantly returned to China after re-claiming the UFC title at 115 pounds. Weili (23-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) did so by submitting then-champion Carla Esparza in the co-main event of UFC 281 this past November in New York.

Weili is easily the most successful MMA fighter, regardless of gender, in to come out of China. She’s the first-ever Chinese champion in UFC history and currently one of the best pound-for-pound female fighters today.

Weili has been competing under the UFC banner since 2018, and she’s racked up notable victories over Esparza, Joanna Jędrzejczyk (twice), Jessica Andrade, Tecia Torres, and Jessica Aguilar.
