Weili Zhang caught Jessica Andrade early into the first round with some fast hands that hurt the champion, then didn’t let off the pressure on the clinch with hard elbows and knees and finished the fight via TKO only 42 seconds into UFC China’s main event, in Shenzhen. On Twitter, pro fighters were impressed with the outcome.
