    Previous threads about the upcoming title fight between Rose Namajunas and Zhang Weili have been filled with discussions of whether Carla Esparza deserved a title shot instead. Nothing wrong with that topic, but please use those other threads if you want to continue that discussion, and reserve this thread just for posts relating to the skills and current training of Rose and Weili. Thanks for your cooperation!

    Weili is putting effort into wrestling. Training with U.S.national champion Genesis Cejudo.

    Weili should shave her head right before she walks out to the fight for the ultimate psychological warfare on Rose. <{cum@me}>

    Makes sense to train with the larger person of the Cejudo family

    How do we judge when this is all Weili? She’s obviously training well. But how do we compare them?

    Trevor Whitman is a proven GOAT coach. Rose is in good hands. Not that zhang isn’t. But Trevor is proven.

    Don't understand what Weilli was anticipating there.

    I just found a relatively recent training video of Rose and posted that. Hopefully she will start posting more training-related stuff soon.

    In an interview after the fight she said she was thinking Rose was either going for her thigh or ribs. If you look at how she moved you can see she moved back enough for it to miss if that's where Rose was aiming. Unfortunately that made her head come forward a bit and, well, that's where Rose was actually aiming.

    Possibly she was trying to emulate a move that Saenchai was using against her in a sparring session between them.
