    Rose is more technical but Zhang is far more aggressive and that can really fuck with Roses head

    Zhang is very technical, she just has an aggressive style.

    Not saying she's not, I feel rose is more technical yet more passive and likely to be shaken

    Just different technical aspects between the 2. Rose like's to set things up and Zhang likes to force the strikes with her aggression. 2 different fighting styles but both very technical. Yes I also think Zhang's aggression will get to Rose, not a lot of fighters handle aggressive technical fighters very well.

    I think Rose is gonna come out looking awesome. Probably bust up Zhang a bit with straight punches. But I think Weili is gonna eventually get inside and her strikes are gonna end the fight somewhere in the round 3-4 range. The Joanna war is gonna have her ready to persevere through the usual fast, amazing start that Rose usually has. Rose also tends to fade just a bit in the latter half of fights.
