New champ Zhang leads $50K bonus winners for UFC Shenzhen

August 31, 2019

UFC on ESPN +15 took place in Shenzhen, China on Saturday with Weili Zhang stopping Jessica Andrade in the first round to win the women’s strawweight title.

The event took place at Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen, China.  The event bonuses went to Weili Zhang, Li Jingliang, Heili Alateng and Danaa Batgerel.  Zhang and Jingliang won Performance Bonuses while Alateng and Batgerel won Fight of the Night.

Zhang needed less than a minute in the first round to win the strawweight title from Andrade.  Conversely, Jingliang earned a KO in the third round with less than 10 seconds left in the fight.  Alateng and Batgerel fought on the prelims of the card.

The bonuses were announced post fight.

Payout Perspective:

With Zhang’s victory over Andrade, it should mean that Rose Namajunas is back in the title picture.  Andrade was no match for Zhang tonight and the Chinese crowd went crazy after her victory.  As the first Chinese champion, Zuffa now has found its connection to the Chinese market.
