Last week while in Boston, Democratic presidential nominee Tulsi Gabbard was able to get in the ring to work with current UFC Strawweight champion Weili Zhang.
So what's the story behind this? Well ,remember that Weili Zhang was denied a visa earlier on in the month when she wanted to go to the United States to visit some friends and fans. This was after her corner was denied entry for her fight in March 2019.
Here is a video of her talking about her denied visa earlier this month:

My American visa was refused again. I don't know why. Is it the wrong type of visa I should apply for? Or because I'm a single woman? Or is the visa officer in a bad mood at work today? I hope this can be resolved so I can visit and get to meet some of my new friends and fans in America. We are still working on it and hope to have good news in time for me to make the trip on Oct 15th 🙏🏼 ✌🏼
So what happened next? In comes Tusli Gabbard. It was revealed by Zhang that Tulsi Gabbard reached out to her to lend a helping hand in obtaining her visa to come to the United States this month. This must've worked because here they are working pads and doing some light sparring Boston last week.
Tulsi doesn't look bad. She looks like she's done a little bit of training before. It doesn't surprise me as she does work out quite a bit. Here is a video she posted the other month of her working out. You can see from the video below that her form is on point.
30 exercises. 600 reps. Get some. #legday #fitness #tulsi2020 #tulsigabbard pic.twitter.com/GX5YYGUBY5— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) September 7, 2019
