A strawweight championship bout between Jessica Andrade and Weili Zhang is in the works to headline UFC China on August 31.

Andrade (20-6) is currently riding a four-fight win streak, most recently knocking out Rose Namajunas for the strawweight title at UFC 237 last month. She holds notable Octagon victories over the likes of Namajunas, Raquel Pennington, Joanne Calderwood, Claudia Gadelha, and Tecia Torres.

Zhang (19-1) is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Tecia Torres at UFC 235 in March. She’s 3-0 since joining the UFC last August and remains unbeaten since losing her debut fight back in 2013.

UFC China will air on ESPN+ and take place in Shenzhen, China.
