With ONE FC recently holding an event in the same location, it seems like a realistic goal for the UFC. Zhang’s status as the only current Asian UFC champion means there will undoubtedly be a large amount of local interest in the fight.

A potential challenger has not yet been announced, although it is likely to be either Rose Namajunas or Carla Esparza.

Namajunas would be the natural candidate to contest Zhang for the title. She is a former champion herself and is coming off a dominant win over Jessica Andrade. Whilst Dana White initially splashed cold water over the prospective matchup, he has since come out and stated that Zhang vs Namajunas is the fight to make.
