VIDEO: Zhang Weili lifts UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou

WOW!!!! Former UFC women’s strawweight (115-pound) champion Zhang Weili hoisted UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou up like it was nothing.

The unlikely training partners were caught training together in the gym.

“I can’t believe that [Weili] just picked me up like I wasn’t 293lbs,” Ngannou wrote on Twitter. “I didn’t want her to do it I was scared of her hurting her back and was trying to explain this to her….then found myself suddenly up in the air. … Her strength ratio is through the roof.”

Watch video below:

Ngannou is rehabbing a knee injury that has left him out of action since his UFC 270 title unification bout against Ciryl Gane. The champion had to have both his ACL and MCL repaired.

Weili on the otherhand will be in action at Madison Square Garden in New York on November 12 when she challenges current champion Carla Esparza for the title in the co-main event of UFC 281.
