Zhang Weili is an up-and-coming UFC champion who has quickly risen to fame since her debut in the octagon. Born and raised in China, she began training at a very young age, first learning traditional Chinese martial arts before transitioning into MMA (mixed martial arts). In 2016, Zhang Weili bolted onto the global scene when she made her professional MMA debut on a card held by Kunlun Fight – one of China’s premier fighting promotion companies – where she earned a unanimous decision victory over Wang Kehan.

In 2018, Weili shot to international stardom after signing with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), becoming their first ever female Chinese fighter. She then went 4–0 in her first stint with the company, claiming victories over numerous opponents including Jessica Aguilar and Tecia Torres before being granted a title fight against strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 248. After five hard fought rounds of action between two of the greatest strikers in women’s MMA history, Zhang emerged victorious by split decision and captured her first UFC championship belt. After winning this historic bout ,we are seeing increased attention to Zhang Weili as well as Asian fighters in general from all around the world.

Since then it’s been nothing but success for “Magnum” Zhang Weili; defending her title twice against former opponent Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 261 and Rose Namajunas at UFC 261 respectively while also receiving multiple endorsements from big name brands such as Reebok and Monster Energy Drink .We’ve seen countless highlights produced about Zhang showing off some dazzling offensive capabilities ranging from kicks that could break boards to punches which would make Mike Tyson proud . It’s no surprise why people are so drawn towards “Magnum” ;her combination of speed,power, skillful technique will always keep viewers on their toes .

Outside of competing inside the octagon , we have seen an emergence of philanthropic actions from “Magnum” during these past few years . She had recently stated that 10 percent of any income obtained through media appearances or sponsorships will be donated directly to charities chosen by herself based on what they’re doing for single parents ,children without homes ,or even disabled persons Thus making sure that those less fortunate can enjoy equal opportunities just like everyone else out there .

Currently sitting atop women’s strawweight division ,it looks like we’ll be seeing more great things come out from our beloved champion Zhang Wei Li both inside & outside The Octagon making us all excited for what lies ahead in this magnificent journey
