What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC? UFC is the dream stage of all combat sports athletes. I feel so happy to be fighting in UFC and I look forward to achieving my goal to be the first Chinese female UFC champion.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn? I’m still a college student. My major is Sanda. 

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition? 2015 China National Sanda Tournament 5th place.
