    Zhang Weili vs. Rose Namajunas title fight targeted for UFC 261 headliner

    Will it be Weili Zhang vs Rose Namajunas as the main event and Valentina Shevchenko vs Jessica Andrade as the co-main?

    Will Sherdog go insane over a WMMA main and co-main?

    Will these fights be a good draw.?

    Will Valentina be furious about having to be co-main under Weili?

    ~~~
    From the article:

    "The latest UFC 261 lineup now includes:
    • Champ Zhang Weili vs. Rose Namajunas – for strawweight title
    • Champ Valentina Shevchenko vs. Jessica Andrade – for women’s flyweight title
    • Uriah Hall vs. Chris Weidman
    • Jimmy Crute vs. Anthony Smith
    • Danaa Batgerel vs. Kevin Natividad"

    Weili is gonna be the main event

    They are giving Weili a massive push. She is their big Asian star.

    Expect a bunch of Chinese fighters on this card

    I wonder how Valentina will take this

    Those are both very high level fights so I don't have a problem with it, it's not like it's Barber vs Grasso as a co-main

    **insert gif of Barber kicking the air**

    I dont know if they want to show how Weili destroyed Valentinas contender for the same card in less than 1 minute tho.

    The crying and whining about how sherdoggers won't buy the PPV even though most of them never spend a single dime in the first place would be delicious for sure

    By the time the night's over, Jessica will have lost to all other parties on the main and co main event.

    I seriously doubt that. Valentina is the higher weight class.

    I'm not a big WMMA fan but I wouldn't mind these 2 being the main and co main. Both are great fights, especially rose vs zhang

    Valentina fight is mildly anticipated, Zhang vs Rose is huge... I can't see casuals being too amazed by the spectacle of those fights though, could be wrong.

    Totally fine with them doing an all WMMA PPV as long as they stack the ones I care about.

    Valentina vs Jessica will be great, if nothing more than it'll be a decent challenge for Valentina. Still, she's heavily favored in that match.

    Rose vs Weili could go either way in mine and I would say the majority of people's eyes.
    Gtfo hater. You will not be missed.

    It won't be a good draw, no.
