Jędrzejczyk: L – Zhang Weili (SD) | W – Michelle Waterson (DEC) | L – Valentina Shevchenko (DEC)

How did these two get here?

Zhang Weili Vs. Joanna Jedrzejczyk was one of the greatest fights in UFC history. Seldom do rematches live up to the expectations of the first fight, but with these two in the Octagon, there is a chance this one could (even though they have fewer rounds to work with).

Weili stayed active since defeating Jedrzejczyk via split decision at UFC 248 two years ago. ‘Magnum’ has fought twice against Rose Namajunas, the ex-strawweight champion who stopped Weili via first-round knockout at UFC 261 and then won by split decision at UFC 268. Despite those losses, Weili has not fallen out of the title picture and could receive another opportunity should she beat Jedrzejczyk again.

After the longest break of her professional career, Jedrzejczyk has said that she’s at her best physically and mentally. She’ll need to be at her best for a second fight with Weili, who she specifically asked for in her return. If she wins against Weili, the former champion will face newly crowned champion Carla Esparza in a rematch.

Why should you care?

We are getting a rematch of the 2020 ‘Fight of the Year’ and that is such a treat.
