You think the campaign trail is tough? Try sparring with a UFC champ!!
That's what presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard did in Boston last week -- trading shots with strawweight superstar Weili Zhang ... and TMZ Sports has the video.
Remember, Gabbard played a huge role in helping the Chinese superstar get a visa so she could come to the U.S. on a media tour.
Gabbard, a U.S. military combat vet and current member of the Army National Guard, is a HUGE fan of MMA and has watched Zhang compete for years.
So, when the opportunity came up to spar with the 30-year-old champ, the congresswoman from Hawaii wasted no time strapping on the gear!!
You can see in the video, shot Friday morning, Gabbard knows what she's doing as the two exchange kicks and punches. At one point, famed MMA coach Duke Roufus tells the women, "No elbows!"
After the training sesh, the two hung out and talked -- with Gabbard stressing that sports can help build relationships between countries that aren't exactly on great terms ... like the U.S. and China.

‘Rat candidate NPC
That dem whole stole the KS seat is a MMA fighter; still votes like leftist dem.
The propaganda is just getting silly LoL.
She’s hot but still needs to bone up on the Bill of Rights.
I’m beginning to sense a small shaking in the dem lineup. Tulsi draws good vibes. She will be hard to insult, which makes her a threat.
We see how the NBA thing is working out...
How do you know shes hot?
Shes Russian, you know.
Hillary said so.
“The propaganda is just getting silly LoL.”
Yes, I could look just as good as her(?) if I had the same publicity manager.
Not sure what you mean. But kudos to her boxing skills. She is a formidable and talented candidate.
I just...dont trust her politically.
It’s a good thing the rats are too stupid to run Tulsi. All they have are tired commies. At least she has some moxie.
Combat veteran? Serving in a combat zone DOES NOT make anyone a combat veteran. Additionally, she is an officer in the National Guard and has called her CINC - President Trump - “Putin’s Bitch”. As an Army veteran AND a combat veteran, if she was an officer in my company - I was an Army Captain and a company commander - I would have her up on charges for “Conducting Unbecoming” an Army Officer. Tulsi is as RABID a Democrat as most other Congressional Democrats.
“Tulsi is as RABID a Democrat as most other Congressional Democrats.”
Then why do the other Democrat candidates despise her? Also, the media?
Lie! The fake news keeps printing this. She was a REMF serving in the area, not a combat vet.
So medics don’t go onto the battlefield?
This Specialist 6 salutes the Major for her service. Biden and Warren never risked their lives for the country.
I asked you a question, with genuine interest to know: Do medics like Tulsi not go onto the battlefield. You said it was a “lie” to call her a combat vet. Are you saying she would not have gone onto the battlefield as a medic? Or that even if she went on the battlefield, that’s not enough to call her a combat veteran?
How would fighting troops view a medic that tended to them? Would they not consider him or her worthy of being called a combat serviceperson? I am just asking. “Lie” is a strong word, and it shows disrespect for a military medic, so it would be helpful for you to explain, thanks/
Still in love with the lil fraud? Wake up man
Why do so many Democrats hate her? I don’t see hate for any of the Democrat presidential candidates except for Tulsi. Can you explain why?
REMF is EXACTLY what she is.
