The UFC 281 co-main event will see the strawweight title on the line as champ Carla Esparza shares the cage with former champ Zhang Weili . Esparza enters on the longest active win streak in the strawweight division. The sixth win of her run saw her reclaim the title she won in the inaugural title bout in 2014, by defeating the same opponent in both fights, Rose Namajunas. Now, she faces a tough competitor who has also held gold in the division. Weili will look to keep the momentum going after her stoppage win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 275.
