Former UFC strawweight champion, Zhang Weili, is excited about a potential matchup with current strawweight champ, Carla Esparza.

Weili spoke with reporters at the media day for this Saturday night's UFC 275 pay-per-view event in Singapore ahead of her rematch with fellow former strawweight champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and explained if she were to be victorious this weekend, why a title fight with Esparza would be one that interests her.
