U.S. Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard Trains MMA with Weili Zhang

A Chinese UFC champion and a US Presidential candidate trained together recently.

Tulsi Gabbard offered to help Weili Zhang when she had visa issues, and now that the UFC strawweight champion managed to make her way to the US, the pair has trained together. As seen on their social media posts, Zhang and Gabbard worked out with Duke Roufus, Paul Felder and the rest of the Roufusport team.

“Today I had the honor to meet and train with Miss @tulsigabbard and she is a very strong martial artist,” Zhang wrote on Instagram. “We had a great training session taught by @coachdukeroufus and his team. It is a happy day when martial arts brings people together.”

“I got to train with the US Presidential Candidate from Hawaii #TulsiGabbard,” Roufus wrote on social media. “She has a background in Capoeira. She is good!!!”
