Last weekend Weili Zhang created history by becoming the first-ever Chinese UFC champion. The 30-year old knocked out reigning UFC strawweight champion in the first round at the Shenzhen Universiade Sports Centre in Shenzhen, China.
Immediately after winning her fight, she was asked by the media members at the post-fight conference if she was interested in fighting UFC flyweight and bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo.
“You know there is a fighter that challenged a lot of female fighters, Henry Cejudo. He calls himself ‘Triple C’, and he challenged Valentina Shevchenko. So do you have interest to fight him?” a reporter asked the newly crowned UFC champion.
Zhang’s reply was hilarious and she said Cejduo should have a sex change surgery in Thailand.
“Yes, he can fight with me.” Zhang replied. “But first, he need to go to Thailand and become, well… get a sex change. Then, I will welcome him or her to the female division.”
Cejudo has been recently calling out numerous female fighters including the likes of Amanda Nunes, Valentina Shevchenko, Germaine De Randamie.
