Two-time strawweight champion Zhang Weili will return to action on UFC 300.

In an all-China title fight she will take on No. 2 ranked Yan Xiaonan for the strawweight strap. The matchup was announced by UFC CEO Dana White.

“This fight has badass written all over it,” White said.

The fight will be Weili’s second title defense since she won the belt for the second time. It will also be the first time two Chinese-born MMA fighters will meet for a UFC title.

Weili defended the belt by defeating Amanda Lemos at UFC 292 while Xiaonan knocked out ex-champ Jessica Andrade at UFC 288 in her last fight.
