“I know Rose and I train with her. So I am going to say that if Rose going to be in the same physical and mental condition that I know her, she is going to win easy,” Shevchenko said on The Schmozone podcast (via Adam Guillen Jr. Of MMA Mania). “Well, not easy, but she will beat her. Weili is tough as well and she don’t want to lose and she is going to prepare. Not easy, but she she is going to win.”

There is no word yet on when the potential title bout between Zhang and Namajunas will go down, but rumors have suggested it could happen in late-2020 or early-2021.
