Zhang spoke with UFC.com after this recent spate of honors and expressed how proud she was of the recognition.
“It was an honor to share the Octagon with Joanna and have the battle that we did,” said Zhang (ht Adam Martin, bjpenn.com). “I have seen the fight many times now, too many to count. Not just because I watched it myself, but because it has been played over and over throughout the world. I’m happy that many people enjoyed the battle and I look forward to returning to the Octagon soon.”
