UFC women’s strawweight champion Weili Zhang (20-1) has become the first UFC Chinese champion in history. The 30-year-old fighter defeated Jessica Andrade earlier this year and claimed the gold, making her one of the biggest sports stars in China.
That of course, is great news for her employers and Dana White, because the Chinese fans can bring a looot of money into the equation. Immediately after her win, there were plans for Zhang to defend her title on American soil, but there might be some real issues to resolve in order to do that.
“Magnum” noted on social media, her visa application has been denied again, and she expressed some frustration over the situation.
“My American visa was refused again. I don’t know why,” Zhang wrote on Instagram. “Is it the wrong type of visa I should apply for? Or because I’m a single woman? Or is the visa officer in a bad mood at work today?

My American visa was refused again. I don’t know why. Is it the wrong type of visa I should apply for? Or because I’m a single woman? Or is the visa officer in a bad mood at work today? I hope this can be resolved so I can visit and get to meet some of my new friends and fans in America. We are still working on it and hope to have good news in time for me to make the trip on Oct 15th 🙏🏼 🇺🇸 🇨🇳 ✌🏼
The champion stated she’ll be continuing with her training until she gets her American visa.
