Weili Zhang vs. Rose Namajunas: UFC 261 Co-main Event Preview & Prediction
There is a jam-packed weekend of UFC fights coming up at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The event features three title fights in front of a full crowd, the first time in over a year for the sport.
While the Kamaru Usman vs. Jorge Masvidal bout has stolen some of the headlines, both women’s title fights have quite the anticipation. The co-main event features the defending strawweight champion Weili Zhang, against the former champion Rose Namajunas. Many have predicated this fight to be a war of two well-trained mixed martial artists, and the trash talk has even gotten personal.
Namajunas has the slight physical edge; she holds an inch in height and two inches in reach. She is no stranger to the stage as a former UFC Strawweight champion ready to go for her fifth title fight in her career.
