UFC strawweight champion Jessica Andrade and challenger Weili Zhang are ready to shine in China.

On Thursday, officials released the poster for UFC Shenzhen, an event that will be headlined by Andrade defending her title against Zhang at Universiade Sports Centre on Aug. 31.

This will be Andrade’s first defense of the strawweight title after winning it with a dramatic slam KO against Rose Namajunas in May. Zhang, who hails from Hebei, China, enters the bout on a 19-fight win streak including a flawless 3-0 mark inside the Octagon.

The UFC Shenzhen main card will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
