From 0:00 on March 16, all overseas personnel entering Beijing should in principle be transferred to a centralized observation point for 14 days of concentrated observation.This new epidemic prevention policy disrupted Zhang Weili’s arrangement. At the last moment, he decided to stay in the United States. “It is now 7:40 a.m. US time. At this time, it is supposed that I should have prepared to return to China on the plane.However, affected by the epidemic, sudden notifications must be quarantined for 14 days.Because of the isolation, there is no way to guarantee my training, diet and urine tests.Therefore, I dare not take the risk to come back.”According to the relevant UFC regulations, champions like Zhang Weili must undergo urine tests at any time.Once the urine test fails, the title may be cancelled.Affected by the epidemic, Zhang Weili left Beijing on February 1 and transferred to Thailand for training.After getting a US visa, Zhang Weili detoured to Abu Dhabi to Las Vegas.”It has been a month and a half since I left home. I missed my home very much, I missed my motherland, and I wanted to go back quickly.”However, affected by the epidemic, Zhang Weili can’t go anywhere now, joking that she can only continue to wander in the United States.Currently, Zhang Weili and the team are still stranded in Las Vegas, where there is a UFC training and recovery center, which also helps Zhang Weili’s recovery and training.Sauna, Ye Wang Sun Haiguang Editor Wang Xihuang Proofreading Wei Zhuo
