Is this the best match up possible? How do you think it would go?

Seeing how Zhang is the UFC's biggest star and the event is hosted in China I guess I'm okay with it. However I thought without a doubt Tatiana Suerez would be next in line.

I heard she maybe banged up. May do her some good to take time off recover and probably fight the winner if not JJ if Rose skips ahead again. Either way I think Andrade wants to be active and this is a good fight to get on a good roll as champ.

Suarez looked pretty bad last Saturday too. I'm sure the UFC would rather her take another fight first.

I hope Zhang can use her striking to at least make this competitive. Andrade should bulldoze her tho.

I see Zhang taking home the belt and yeah it's the best match up because we seen Andrade fight everybody ahead of Zhang except for Tatiana but she's injured.

Agreed, activity is never a bad thing and she should have no problem with Zhang if she fights to her strengths and Zhang's weaknesses.

I like the fight after taking a look at the division and Zhang's body of work. Zhang is in a unique position being from China and if she didn't jump on the position it would be a real missed opportunity in today's sport. Furthermore, Andrade should be willing to take on these challengers, legacies are made through achievement. What better achievement is there than to defend your title against legitimate top contenders? I like active Champions, it's the downfall of the McGregor effect in the FW/LW divisions. Same reason I'm happy to see Jones in action this weekend.
