UFC Shenzhen fight week is well and truly underway. The main card contenders took to the stage at the Upper Hill Mall in the bustling city of Shenzhen on Wednesday for a highly entertaining open workout session.

In attendance was UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade and title challenger Zhang Weili.

Perhaps anticipating a repeat of Andrade’s title-winning slam against Rose Namajunas, Weili was keen to put her takedown (and take off) defense on display.

Also on hand to entertain bystanders was welterweight Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, who meets Chinese favourite Li “The Leech” Jingliang in the co-main event.

Wu Yanan, who takes on UFC newcomer Mizuki Inoue, laced up the gloves for a few rounds with her training partners.
