The MMA Vivisection - UFC Shenzhen: Andrade vs. Zhang picks, odds, & analysis

It’s a strange thing to say, but even with a title fight at the top of it, as far as US fans are concerned, there may as well not even be a UFC card this week. UFC Shenzhen seems like a card particularly heavily geared toward the local market and nothing else. Zhang’s time in the promotion has been brief enough, that even with her impressive record, she has little in the way to hype to promote her as a challenger. And outside of a surefire action bout between Elizeu Zaleski and Li Jingliang, this fight card seems mostly made up of whoever could get to the arena with the least amount of travel time (and a bout between two Brazilian women’s bantamweight newcomers).
