Weili Zhang says she has fallen in love with wrestling
Weili Zhang appears to be going from strength to strength as she prepares for her UFC 268 title shot in Arizona. The Chinese fighter has been working with the coaches at Fight Ready including two division UFC champion Henry Cejudo.
Zhang will be looking to reclaim the strawweight title from Rose Namajunas and she announced on Instagram that she has fallen in love with wrestling:

She is more known for her sanda style striking skills but appears to have added some more elements to her game during this training camp. Zhang will certainly be looking to improve on her last performance when she was knocked out by Namajunas at UFC 261.
Zhang admitted afterwards she has been affected by the hostile reaction from the Florida crowd. But having spent several months in Arizona and started to learn English she should be much more at home this time around.
