The UFC returns to China on Saturday, August 31 when the promotion holds UFC on ESPN+ 15 from the Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen. In the main event, newly crowned strawweight champion Jessica Andrade will defend her title for the first time when she collides with China’s own Weili Zhang.
The UFC Shenzhen fight card has an early start here in the United States with a 3 a.m. eastern kickoff on the east coast. The entire card will be available via ESPN+.
Little bit of late breaking news as it seems the featherweight bout between Movsar Evloev and Lu Zhenhong may be off the card. It appears as if Zhenhong sustained a cut and cannot compete.
