Zhang Looking To Finish Joanna Early Out Of Mercy

If UFC strawweight champion Weil Zhang gets her way, she will make her first defense against former 115-pound champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

“I think she sounds very angry all the time, and her emotions will get her in trouble,” Weili told MMA Junkie of Jedrzejczyk’s public call-outs of Zhang and the former champion’s assertion that she will get her title back. “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.
