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.
