Rose is very experienced in rematches. She held two fights with Jessica Andrade and Joanna. Rose stopped the Chinese winning streaks. Zhang was the first-ever Chinese champion. In the UFC, she earned five victories. Just like her rival, she has victories against Jessica Andrade and Joanna.

It is hard to predict anything in this kind of fight. Zhang is a very experienced striker, and she's throwing some bumps. However, Rose was an amazing Brazilian jujitsu fighter, but she also didn’t have amazing striking skills during her career. Rose is mixing up her striking and takedowns, so it's hard for her opponents to read her moment and defend herself.

It is very hard to name a favorite in the fight. Even experienced bookmakers can't name the favorite, so their winning odds are too close. But some bookmakers consider the Chinese fighter to be the favorite and she is opening this boat as a slight favorite with the odds near 1.8 meanwhile the victory of Rose has the odds around 2.05.

From my point of view, Rose will earn another victory in this fight. The Chinese fighter is always dangerous because of her power, but Rose has the ability to defend herself on the feet and Zhang isn't as strong as Rose on the ground, so I think that Rose will earn another submission victory.
