The channel features an array of videos surrounding Weili’s life, as well as her continued pursuit to learn the English language.
Weili captured the title this past August in her home country of China. She ran through Jessica Andrade in just 42 seconds to become the first Chinese UFC champion in history. She’ll attempt her first title defense against former UFC strawweight queen Jedrzejczyk.
