On Thursday morning, the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced four fights for their debut in China. Fast forward just a couple of hours and they decided to keep the confirmation carousel going by reporting the complete “UFC on FUEL TV: Franklin vs. Le” lineup.
The good news is the Octagon will finally be taking its talents to China. The bad news is the card only features 10 bouts instead of the customary 11, oftentimes 12.
A middleweight shootout between Cung Le (Pictured) and Rich Franklin headlines the show. Light heavyweights Thiago Silva and Stanislav Nedkov serve as the co-main attraction.
The November 10th event takes place at CotaiArena inside The Venetian Macau Resort in Macau.
Although an official confirmation hasn’t been made, the UFC’s Facebook page is expected to offer a live stream of the prelims.
FUEL TV will broadcast the six-fight main card live in North America at 9AM ET/6AM PT.
Here is the card’s complete roster:
Hyun Gyu Lim vs. Marcelo Guimaraes
