Andrade and Zhang on point ahead of UFC Shenzhen
Andrade tipped the scales at 114.5lbs while Zhang weighed bang on 115lbs. At Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre Arena tomorrow night the challenger will be looking to become the first Chinese fighter to ever win a UFC title.
It wasn’t all plain sailing for the Chinese fighters at this morning’s weigh in. Wu Yanan came in well over the flyweight limit, tipping the scales at 129lbs while opponent Mizuki Inoue, who normally competes in the strawweight division, weighed exactly 125lbs.
Everyone else on the card made weight. Featherweight newcomer Lu Zhenhong left it late but eventually tipped the scales at 146lbs ahead of his short notice rematch with Movsar Evloev, who also weighed 146lbs.
This will be the promotion’s third event in mainland China after cards in Shanghai and Beijing.
