Nina Ansaroff continues her quest to win the UFC women’s strawweight title

The current champion in the UFC women’s strawweight division is none other than Chinese MMA sensation Zhang Weili. The vast majority of MMA fans and experts believe that Zhang is likely to defend her UFC women’s strawweight title against Rose Namajunas.

However, UFC President Dana White recently asserted that it’s former UFC women’s strawweight champion Carla Esparza, and not Rose Namajunas, who could receive the next shot. As of this time, it’s unclear as to whether Zhang would face Namajunas or Esparza in her next title defense.

Zhang’s first title defense came in March against Joanna Jedrzejczyk, whom she beat in a closely-contested bout via split decision. Her fight against Jedrzejczyk is considered to be one of the best fights of 2020, and many believe that the decision could’ve gone either way.
