Zhang Weili vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk? Dana White digs it
And their promoter has made it just as clear it’s a fight he wants to see.
Jedrzejczyk, who earned her way back into the 115-pound title discussion with a recent and impressive five-round victory over Michelle Waterson, made waves recently when she told the South China Morning Post that she’s ready to fight, and that if it means she’ll get a title shot, she’s willing to fight Zhang, the first Chinese-born UFC champion, on her home turf.
“Anywhere, anytime,” she told the Post. “Bangkok, Sri Lanka, Warsaw, Toronto, it doesn’t matter where. For me, it doesn’t matter. I will make my way. Even if we have to take a canoe, I will make it to China and beat the (expletive) out of her.”
Wang, for her part, responded on her Instagram page that she is “ready now.”
A red-hot current champ has beef with a rebounding former champ? Is that … do we hear … yes, that’s Dana White’s music.
Sounds like we know what one of the first hot fights of 2020 will be.
