Zhang Weili Retains Title In Fight Of The Year – March 7, 2020 (This Day In MMA History)
Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk put on arguably the greatest title fight in women’s MMA history.
Two years ago, Weili defended her UFC strawweight championship belt for all five rounds against Jedrzejczyk. It was named “Fight of the Year” by a number of online publications including MMA Junkie, Bloody Elbow and ESPN, to name a few.
Weili came out victorious by split decision, but Jedrzejczyk didn’t let her retain it that easily.
The two combined for the third most significant strikes in a UFC title fight.
Weili has since lost that title to Rose Namajunas – twice – but that has been rumors that she will have a rematch with Jedrzejczyk.
