Zhang Weili (23-3 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since recapturing the women’s strawweight title with a submission win over Carla Esparza at UFC 281 in November of last year. That victory had marked ‘Magum’s’ second in a row, as she had previously knocked out former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 275.

Meanwhile, Amanda Lemos (13-3-1 MMA) entered her first career UFC title bout sporting a two-fight win streak, her most recent being a TKO victory over Marina Rodriguez last November. The Brazilian had won seven of her past eight fights overall heading into the contest, with her lone loss in that stretch coming to Jessica Andrade by way of submission.

Tonight’s UFC 292 co-main event resulted in another phenomenal performance from reigning strawweight champion Zhang Weili. The Chinese standout landed the most strikes in strawweight title fight history, which included a late knockdown in the fifth and final round. After twenty-five minutes of domination, Zhang was awarded a lopsided unanimous decision victory from the judges’ in attendance.
