Dana White hints at Weili Zhang vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk coming soon
https://sports.yahoo.com/dana-white-hin ... 07982.html

UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang may have an opponent for her first title defense when she returns to action in 2020.

This past week, former 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk did an interview where she was quoted as saying “anywhere, anytime” she could get her hands on Weili and “beat the s**t out of her.”

It didn’t take long for word to reach Weili, who quickly fired back at Jedrzejczyk, as she not only accepted the challenge, but quickly tagged UFC president Dana White in an effort to put the fight together in the very near future.

“She seems very angry,” Weili wrote on Instagram. “Don’t worry, she will calm down. I am ready now. Call my manager [Brian Butler of Suckerpunch Entertainment] or call Dana White. I’m ready.”

Following her knockout win over Jessica Andrade to become champion and Jedrzejczyk’s victory against Michelle Waterson in October, the 30-year-old fighter from China didn’t show much interest in the fight.

"I don't think she’s the fighter that she used to be," Weili said when speaking to TMZ. "She's not in the condition she used to be. I'm not very interested."

It’s not evident what changed her mind, but the UFC strawweight champion definitely appears to be interested now — and so does White.

Dana White likes the idea of Weili Zhang vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Following the exchange over Instagram between the fighters, the UFC president chimed in while all but confirming that the organization hopes to book that match-up sometime next year.

“This is going to be a VERY fun fight,” White wrote.

With Zhang already holding a knockout win over Andrade, former champion Rose Namajunas coming off of a loss, and “Ultimate Fighter” winner Tatiana Suarez still dealing with a neck injury, Jedrzejczyk is the most logical choice for the next title shot.

The UFC has not made any announcements regarding the fight, but it sure looks like the promotion is moving in that direction in the near future.

This should be a hell of a fight. Baldy better get it done.

That weight cut might come back and fuck Joanna over here.

She has been cutting more and more weight. Its getting nuts. I get she has no confidence she can beat Valentina at 125, she is 0-1 in mma and 0-3 in Muay Thai against her, but this level of weight cutting is just ridiculous and one of the reasons the UFC is become less interesting.

I see Zhang hopefully landing some big strikes and putting Joanna to bed. Joannas footwork and distance are absolutely top notch still and she is quite quick, to me this means either a Joanna UD if Zhang never catches her or a finish by Zhang. No inbetween
Officially 8-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 5 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:

I don't know, Joanna has the experience, durability, and style to make this pretty interesting. Weili will probably be a small favorite but I don't really see her strolling in and steamrolling Joanna. If Weili does win easily though it would be pretty damn impressive.

Rose's speed, footwork and length are too much for Joanna. In the first fight it was mainly Rose was able to set up left hooks that made Joanna look silly. Joanna did a good job correcting for it in the second fight. Weili will be different, if she gets inside on Joanna she will likely murder her but if Joanna fights a smart tactical fight on the outside I wouldn't be surprised if she wins a UD. You guys might be right though and Weili KO's her easily. Only one way to find out.

Rose only has power and chin on JJ. Her length also helps but its the power that was putting JJ off all the time.

First time it wasn't Roses footwork lol it was JJ's arrogance thinking Rose was shit.

JJ just went in throwing long combos at short distance, Rose just had to hold there and swing hard, worked once, then JJ was dazed and ate the left hook that put her down.

That said if anyone can beat Weili it is JJ but it's still a veeeery tall order.

JJ could potentially step in & out & to the side all night long but Weili isn't some bull like Andrade, she has proper technique, speed and power.

Could go very wrong for JJ is she isn't careful but I have only seen her go full retard VS rose the first time.

Weili by KO :(

Joanna gonna get fooked up on the ground.....TKO in full mount from the Chinese sensation.

I never said Rose's footwork was the only reason she won the first fight but she definitely used it to her advantage to set things up and keep Joanna off-balance. It's clear Joanna wasn't defending properly and underestimated Rose. However if you think power is the only reason Rose won the fight and all she did was hold there and swing hard then I'm more than happy to agree to disagree.
