Rising UFC strawweight contender Tatiana Suarez is setting her sights on a future championship showdown against reigning titleholder Zhang Weili.

Suarez, known for her unbeaten record and dominant fighting style, has long been viewed as one of the top prospects in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Despite her impressive credentials, including an undefeated record in MMA, Suarez has yet to earn a shot at the strawweight crown due to extended periods away from competition.

In contrast, Zhang Weili has firmly established herself as the strawweight champion, boasting several dominant performances. Her most recent victory came against Yan Xiaonan at UFC 300, further solidifying her reign over the division.

Expressing her eagerness for a potential matchup with Weili, Suarez discussed her confidence and game plan during an interview with MMA Junkie Radio.

"I’m really excited to fight Weili when given the opportunity because she’s had a couple of dominant performances, and I really want to test myself," Suarez revealed.

Analyzing Weili's recent fights, Suarez highlighted her belief in her grappling skills and strategy against the champion.

"I think I’d do well just like I’ve always known," Suarez commented, emphasizing her confidence in her ability to impose her will with superior grappling.
