On Saturday, Aug. 31, the UFC will host its 15th event on ESPN+ from the Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen, China.
In the night’s main event, women’s strawweight queen Jessica Andrade will put her belt on the line against China’s Weili Zhang. The Brazilian Andrade earned the belt with a violent, second-round slam knockout of Rose Namajunas in May. Zhang was yet to taste defeat inside the Octagon, reeling off three straight victories.
In the co-main event, Li Jingliang fights in his homeland against Brazil’s Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos.
The preliminary card airs live on ESPN at 3 a.m. ET. The night’s main card follows at 6 a.m. ET on ESPN+.
