China’s Weili Zhang wants a rematch with UFC minimum women’s champion Rose Namajunas in neutral territory. According to Zhang, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, would be the ideal place.
“Ideally, we would like it to be held in Abu Dhabi,” Weili Zhang said during a livestream (H/T mmanews.com). “This location is neutral to both parties. But now, Rose is the champion, so it might not be up to us. The table has been turned. ”
Zhang makes a great point in the fact that Namajunas is the champ now and can do what she wants. One does have to wonder if the location was different, would there be a different outcome?
Either way, Zhang seems ready to move on from her whole UFC 261 experience. Later on during the livestream, she makes comments on how she feels about Namajunas.
“I don’t want to comment on Rose,” Zhang said. “I wanted to touch gloves with her in the fight but she didn’t do it. So I think … I wanted to make friends through MMA, but the other person doesn’t think like that. So oh well. Joanna, I think Joanna is quite cute. She is good, she is cute. She makes things clear and not tries to hide anything. But Rose, she is smart. Very smart. ”
