Zhang Weili Is Slight Favorite For Joanna Jedrzejczyk Rematch At UFC 275
Zhang Weili is the favorite in her subsequent rematch against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
Weili and Jedrzejczyk held one of the best female battles throughout five rounds where Weili earned a decision victory. Weili will be a slight favorite with the odds around -150.
Weili’s first-ever title defense was against Rose Namajunas where Weili opened this bout as a favorite. But Namajunas turned the tables when she served a first-round knockout to the first-ever Chinese UFC champion.
Weili also held a rematch with Namajunas, but suffered a split decision loss after a five-rounder war. Joanna herself did not have any fight and was spending this time for recovery and improvement.
In the main event, Jiri Prochazka, a former champion, has the winning odds around +130.
This fight will take place at UFC 275 on June 11. The headlining of the event will be an anticipated light heavyweight bout between Prochazka and Glover Teixeira.
There also will be another title fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos and a battle between Robert Whittaker and Marvin Vettori, which might be the title eliminator battle.
